Unlike the O.W.L.s, the W.O.M.B.A.T.s consist exclusively of written papers. Therefore W.O.M.B.A.T.s could be sat by Muggles as well as wizards, although the Wizarding Examinations Authority does not believe that any Muggle would have the degree of inner-knowledge required to achieve a pass.

The Grade 1 W.O.M.B.A.T. tested whether the examinee could exist within the magical world without falling foul of everyday wizarding laws, injuring themselves or others while using domestic spells, traveling by magical means, or by mistaking the characteristics of common magical plants and creatures.

The Grade 2 W.O.M.B.A.T. is more advanced. To pass this examination you will be required to show that you understand magical beings other than witches or wizards; that you recognize and know the use of various magical objects; that you have an awareness of wizarding current affairs, and that you have a working knowledge of the Muggle world alongside which we must live. This is still not a straightforward Harry Potter trivia test. While a thorough knowledge of the books is essential to achieving a good grade at all levels of W.O.M.B.A.T., you will need inspiration as well as information, applying what you know, whether by deducing the correct answer or by making intelligent guesses.

If you would like to sit the Grade 2 W.O.M.B.A.T, you will need 25 minutes.

It will take a few days for the Ministry to mark your test, after which the delivery owl will reveal your result in the form of a printed certificate. Once again... good luck.
