Irrespective of the fact that you are a Potterhead or not, J.K. Rowling’s super hit novel series, Harry Potter’s lead character, Harry Potter and his magical school, Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry is a household name and what has been left to be covered was fuelled by the novel’s movie adaption series, titled ‘Harry Potter.’HOGWARTS
But have you ever thought about the possibility of attending the magical school of Harry, wouldn’t it be in the simplest of terms, amazing. While this amazement wouldn’t be something unique from the characters hailing with wizardry family backgrounds, which make up for most of the dramatis personae of the novel series. Yet, Hogwarts magic is magical in itself but if we draw up differences between this world of magic and witchcraft besides our world of so-called reality, it isn’t seemingly much distinct.
Let’s draw up some quick differences between the subjects taught in our schools and the Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry.
Hogwarts doesn’t have an English class. While magicians have the ability to instantly transport from one place to another in a matter of seconds having a knowledge of many languages seems imperative but you don’t get to learn it. Moreover, the goblin language is also not taught at this magical institution.
While Lockhart is subject to the perception of readers and viewers to count him as an author, seemingly, the world of magic don’t have playwright and authors of the fictional genre.
Regardless of the fact that we can’t expect science to exist in the first place when magic is the customary order of the world but still there remains a layer of mystery among students on how the world functions and further comprehend the deeper aspects. Even Biology as a subject is quite notable to understand the functioning of the human body and the impacts of magic on the anatomy.
While Mathematics may top the list for the most hated subject at any point of time all through the world but the contents of the magical arithmetic differs from our syllabus. The magical world has Arithmacy which is a magical form of maths and taught exclusively to students after they reach the third year. According to Harry Potter Wiki, the subject is “predicting the future using numbers,” with “a bit of numerology” as well. This means you don’t have all your despised calculus, algebra, or statistics.
