Muggle Studies – welcome to the real world

Muggle Studies in lore

Muggle Studies is an elective subject that instructs students about Muggle or non-magical people’s lives, their history, and technology. Some wizards may say this is a soft option for a student, and not that important subject, but Percy Weasley thinks it is important to understand Muggles for better communication and cooperation. Especially if you wish to work in the Ministry of Magic.

Students who choose this subject and pass the Muggle Studies O.W.L. test in the fifth year may get a bright pink-and-orange leaflet with the title: “So You Think You’d Like to Work in Muggle Relations?”

The current professor of this subject, both in lore and in the game is Concordia Rowle.

Muggle Studies in the game

Like in History of Magic Class, this Class in the game is played as a quiz. In the Class, there are 2 teams of players. Your team and opponent team. Each Team has 3 players. This Class is available on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

The quiz has 10 questions in total. Each question has 4 possible answers. You have 10 seconds to choose the correct one. There’s not much time to Google the answer, I know, so you’d better come to your classes prepared! 😉 If you answer the question faster you will gain more points, slower – fewer points.

When someone answers, you will see either a red X mark if they choose the wrong answer or a green check mark if they answered correctly. You can see your team and the opponent’s team. Now, you can’t see what players of the opponent team answered, but you can see a letter that represents the answer, above the head of players from your team. For example, if you see a green check mark and answer B above the head of your teammate, you can choose B as well, thanks to them. It’s like you are peeking at their work.

If you wish to win, your team needs to accumulate more points than the opponent team. Points of a team are the cumulative point of each player in the team. You can see the points of each teammate on the left side of the screen and on the right, you can see points for each player from the opponent team.

The goal of this mini game is for your team to collect more points than the opponent team. You can also see the points of each teammate from your team.

The questions in these classes are mostly about Muggle lore (from books, movies, and real-life facts).

In the end, your team will receive a grade depending on the number of Bonus Objectives completed.
