Love the fact that Professor McGonagall and Professor Flitwick are examiners. That makes sense. I'M actually an Examiner myself. I don't go around to schools, but I correct the Junior Cert. History exams.

I really like the way you show the importance of the exams here. Stories sometimes gloss over the actual academic part of school.

Oh gosh, the waiting is awful. I didn't have any practical exams but I had Irish and German orals and I remember overhearing the person before me in German being asked their favourite period of history and anxiously trying to figure out how to say "when de Valera was Taoiseach" in German, before giving up and just figuring I'd just say the Second World War, which I actually knew the German for. I'd be like Albus; I'd prefer go first and get it over with.

When the bang went off, I thought for a moment it was going to be something serious, like the murderer or something.

And poor Garth. He must be feeling pretty dispirited.

And poor Matt. He seems to be taking everything rather badly. He does have a lot to deal with.

Yikes, I didn't expect things to end like that with Young. I wonder if something will happen to indicate the true murderer before this story is finished or if it'll be an ongoing mystery into year six. I think you'll probably give us a solution in this one though.

Hmm, I wonder if McGonagall knows, or suspects something or if she just doubts the verdict because there are a few questions to be answered, like how he was supervising Cedric's detention at the time.

Author's Response: I can't see Flitwick and McGonagall sitting around doing nothing after retiring, so I figured becoming examiners would be a good career choice.

I hate when stories just pass over the school stuff. Hogwarts is first and foremost a school, so academics should play a big role in stories.

Luckily I never had to wait very long for results. Regents results were always out within days and computer based testing has immediate scores. I had to wait a while for my AP and SAT scores, though. I wasn't too worried about either of those.

Haha, I gave many fake answers in my French orals in high school. It was just easier and it's not like the teacher could accuse you of lying if you said your favorite color was blue instead of pink.

Murder during an exam! Now that would be interesting. My high school had a bomb threat during an AP exam I was sitting once. They had to bus us up to the middle school to finish it.

Well, there are still a few chapters left, so you'll see! McGonagall just doubts the verdict. She believes Cedric. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
