As the seventh years took their seats in the History of Magic classroom, Matt stood up from behind his desk, a smile on his face. "Greetings, class," he began, "I hope you're all ready for more revision," he smiled, as he grabbed a pile of papers on his desk.

"This week we're going over third and fourth year, in these years you studied Ancient Magical History. I didn't teach those classes, but I heard you guys went on exciting field trips." He shrugged. "Maybe remembering these things will help you with the revision test this week." He passed the papers out by magic again, hoping it would help them remember things for the OWLs. "Let me know if you need any help, good luck!"

Simon had enjoyed the brightstone weekend, it had been nice to get away from school a little and just enjoy himself, they would heading into crunch point and that means he wouldn’t have a lot of time to do much he wouldn’t have a lot of time to just relax and have a little fun like he had been able to have while at brightstone, but he knew it would be worth it. The little relax before his big exams would make him work even harder, he would need to work harder when he got out of school but he could relax a little, it would be specific work that he was doing and not everything. He would be getting to a point where he would be set for life and he’d have Charlotte by his side the whole time. Simon knew it had been a good thing to do since even now he just felt ready for what was to come. The head boy was getting himself ready for the day ahead, knowing that he would need to focus on a few subjects today and he took only what he would need to be able to do that. Eventually he had everything together and he headed to class.
Simon walked into the history of magic classroom and took his usual spot in the room. He wasn’t much looking forward to this class, if the last one had involved them doing a quiz he couldn’t imagine that this would involve them doing anything else. It wasn’t like they would just stop the revision. Simon didn’t bother taking out his notes or his books just kept his gaze up on the professor as the man began the lesson, telling them that they would be doing a quiz - which he had expected. He listened to the few words the professor gave and then they were able to just focus on the quiz. He read over it and then began filling out the answers to it. Making sure that he was answering every part correctly and to the fullest he could. Making sure that he answered each part more than he needed to. When he was done answering all of the questions he took a bit of time to read back over them and made sure he was happy with them before he packed up his things and headed out of the room.

Shane was beginning to think a little about what the future would hold for him on the other side of his schooling. He could also admit that with his graduation getting ever closer he was looking forward to being done more and more. He was just so close to being finished that he was getting a little impatient. The good thing was, after his catching up of the week before he hadn’t needed to worry all that much, he’d caught up perfectly well and was now entirely up to date with what he needed for his classes. It was just a pity in his mind that there was still so much time before he would be able to actually leave. He knew it really wasn’t but it was so close it almost felt too far away. It was just too far away for him. Shane was getting himself together, getting his notes and books together for the classes he had that day, ensuring that he wouldn’t need to make trips back. Eventually he had everything together and he headed out of the dorm and to the class he needed.
Shane walked into the history of magic classroom and took his usual spot in the room. He wasn’t looking forward to doing a quiz, but at the very least he knew he would be doing one. He went into most other classes thinking he’d have to do one and being happy when he didn’t. This was clearly the opposite problem. He took his seat in the room and after most had done so the quizzes were passed out. He looked at it and shrugged, it was easy enough, perhaps he would be okay in this upcoming exam without really needing to do much of the work for it. The hufflepuff answered a few of the very easy ones and then let them get progressively more difficult though he didn’t find most of them that difficult. He took the time to go back over the answers once he had something for everything, but eventually he just mostly gave up and handed what he’d done back to the man and then headed out of the classroom. He knew these quizzes would help him as he headed towards the exam but goodness were they dull.

Charlotte was focused on her last semester ever on Hogwarts. She tried to do the very best she could and thought of what she wanted to do. One thing that she knew was that she didn't want to follow in her fathers footsteps. She wanted more in the wizarding world. Together with Simon she could achieve a lot. Be known around the world for good work. Charlotte had her eyes on the Ministry and hoped she could achieve that. For sure it was known that she and Simon wanted to stay together, they had to be talking details but she would follow him wherever they would go. It was something that was sure.

The blonde entered the classroom and found her usual spot in the front next to her redhead. Charlotte watched as the professor started the lesson. Another revision ofcourse, everything for the exam and to be ready. She tried to remember the fieldtrips they did and she knee some were really interesting. She took the sheet with her and as they had to fill it in Charlotte started with it. The blonde knew the questions so it wasn't hard to fill it in. She had her notes also with her from the previous years, she was always good prepared. So when she was done she smiled and left it in the classroom with the professor. And than walked out of the classroom when they could.

Joshua arrived to yet another History of Magic lesson, alert and preparing to take notes as the school year was close to coming to an end. Where did the time go? In all honestly, he really couldn't believe the school year was almost over for him. There were times when he wanted for it to end quickly, then there was time like this where the days were rushing too fast. Everything around him was rushing too fast. The overwhelming sense can get to him, and then he remembers everything will be fine. Everything will be fine if he took each day one step at a time. No worries, right? Joshua took the exam from Professor Ward, he read each questions a few dozen times. Joshua and his obsession with time can drive another person mad. He force his mind not to count the many times he read the questions, and instead actually try to answer the questions asked. The Ravenclaw jotted down what he could recall, read through his answers and eventually turned in his exam.
