BookRoast‘s OWLS and NEWTS Readathons might be my favourites each year? I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for prompts and was really excited to see all the changes/ additions she’s made this year (new careers!!).
Last year I got:
And a career as a Broom Maker.
This year, I picked my career goals purely based on what job sounded fun and went for Spell Maker (I absolutely DID NOT release how many NEWTs it requires, so I might reassess my life goals and switch to Graphic Designer, depending on how busy my August is). Apparently Hogwarts!Me is ambitious this year.
I also really want to try and get these 3 ‘extra’ qualifications, but we’ll see.
OWLs – Arithmancy, Potions, Tranfiguration
NEWTs – A in Arithmancy, E in Potions, O in Tranfiguration
OWLs – Herbology
NEWTs – E in Herbology
Legal Defence of Fantastic Beasts Seminar
OWLS – History of Magic, Care of Magical Creatures
NEWTS – E in History of Magic, E in Care of Magical Creatures.
There are 12 OWL subjects and that’s usually doable for my in a month so, for now, I’m going to just pick something for every prompt and see how I get on. Then, I can look again at my options when we do the NEWTs Readathon.
