About This Quiz

Oh, the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter, how we miss you! Just because it's been over for a few years now, that doesn't mean the fans have forgotten all about it. What with the Cursed Child play and the many Harry Potter theme parks around the world, the young wizard's legacy is far from dead or gone. 

But were you a fan from the very first book, or did you get on the bandwagon when the fourth movie was released? Trust us when we say we'll be able to tell if you're a day one fan or if you don't know what Avada Kedavra means or does. Only true fans will ace this quiz! Are you ready, or do you need some Felix Felicis?

In book one we learned all about magic. In book two we learned about ghosts, phoenix tears and acromantulas. In book three we met the dementors, a werewolf and a godfather. In book four we fought Grindylows, sphinxes and the Dark Lord himself. In number five we were part of a secret organization. In six, we began to chase after Horcruxes and in book seven, we had the Battle of Hogwarts. Just how much were you paying attention? Find out with this quiz!
