Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests or N.E.W.T.s are the most advanced level of examinations students can take at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Students work on their N.E.W.T.s after taking their Ordinary Wizarding Levels (O.W.L.s) and usually sit the exams in their seventh year. Certain difficult or specialised professions require a N.E.W.T. in a particular subject or a certain number of N.E.W.T.s.
