JKRowling.com‘s mysterious “Do Not Disturb” Sign is gone – revealing a third WOMBAT test underneath. This is the FINAL WOMBAT, and more difficult than the rest; also, certain answers are sure to “LOSE YOU MARKS,” the test warns (in all those caps, too). It is on Magical History, the bodies and laws of the International Wizarding Community, Magical Theory and Dark Magic. It will take 35 minutes to take.
If you would like directions on how to get into the room, read below.

Wait until the fly lands on the window; click him. He turns into a key. Drag him to the door and open, and see the desk. On the desk, put the circle on top of the line; it should sparkle. Then put the triangle on top (essentially creating the symbol on the spine of the British edition cover of DH). It should also sparkle. Then take your test!

Avatar Image says: Wahey, Melissa is out of bed XDAvatar Image says: Joy oh joy the Leaky guys are alive!! Was beginning to worry :o)Avatar Image says: How to get the fly...?? it moves!!!!!!!!Avatar Image says: the sign was still there when I checked it...I won't get to look again till after 5, off to work...Avatar Image says: I would guess that the door will close on Monday 18th with the results appearing at the end of that week.Avatar Image says: OK guys, how do you get in the door?Avatar Image says: hmm, fly is the key obviously.... and i'm making that symbol with the three shapes but nothing seems to be happening Avatar Image says: If your fly is still "ticklish", your computer has probably "cached" Jo's website. Try refreshing or using an alternate entrance like jkrowling.net instead of jkrowling.com . Avatar Image says: What do you do with the items on top of the exam once you get in the door????Avatar Image says: The fly on the window turns into a key. I can't get the key to the door.Avatar Image says: You then have to put the triangle on the cirle and line melissa. You missed that in your post :)Avatar Image says: I saw the other comments right after I posted mine. Thanks.Avatar Image says: houseElf- once you've clicked on the fly, don't unclick your mouse to try & get the key, just drag it to the right and the key should move with it.Avatar Image says: oh dear oh dear...... the fly is not turning inot a key..what to do ..what to do????someone help me.Avatar Image says: I've just gotten through it! This is way cool! The fly is the key, and you have to make the symbol on the spine of DH precisely. Good Luck to all!Avatar Image says: Vandy: Make use you aren't on the accessible version of the site. If you are already on the normal version try an alternate alias like http://www.jkrowling.co.uk/ in case your problem is cached files.Avatar Image says: SQUEE!!! This one was pretty hard I didn't know half of the stuff hehee - I wonder how long we have to wait for our results *bites nails* I hope I get an E this time too :)Avatar Image says: YES!!!!! I've never done the WOMBATS!!!! I have to wait until after work, but YAY!Avatar Image says: Thnaks roonwit! the co.uk site works...Avatar Image says: Jo, taunting us again with THAT symbol.....Avatar Image says: woo, test didn't seem that hard... but thats what i thought about last time.Avatar Image says: It won't let me do it!!! No matter how I click on the fly!!!! Oh, the clicking....Avatar Image says: ok I see NO window. I see a desk with a keyboard, rubbish bin, newspaper etc... where's the window and door?Avatar Image says: I'll take the test tonight.Avatar Image says: this is a silly question. where could i get a wombat student id number?Avatar Image says: I've retrieved enough extra items to win one ancient drawing, but I have other extra items that don't seem to be enough to win anything else. I have eggshells, I've moved medals into display cases, I have some sort of blue, shiny object,...what am I missing to get the next secret document/drawing? Anyone?Avatar Image says: You only got one if you have finished the previous two tests. Avatar Image says: guys was there clues on test? if yes, what were they?Avatar Image says: I can't get the fly to turn into the key. Any suggestions? I've tried .net...to which I get no page at all. And .co.uk to which I get more of the same un-changing fly... Maybe something is wrong with my wand or I am not as good at Transfiguration as my last WOMBAT would have suggested! (EE) PLEASE HELP!!!Avatar Image says: This is my first WOMBAT. Can anyone tell me where is a good place to "study"? Or is the information taken from what's in the books? Thanks!Avatar Image says: The wombat won't open for me it disappears and the room goes black but does nothing. I've cleared teh cache and allsorts. Also the British site jkrowling.co.uk doesn't have the wombat yet, it still has teh do not disturb sign on the door.Avatar Image says: Great news... I wish everybody good luck who take part in the WOMBAT test! :)Avatar Image says: My ID is at home but I took it anyway. :) I'll just have to keep track of two numbers that's all. I'll take it again with my real ID later. (I'm at work now.) It was really hard. The idea that certain answers LOSE you points scares me. Definitely think through your answers. So I wonder if we'll get anything extra when we get our scores? A Few chapter titles, maybe?Avatar Image says: Michelle- yeah, that scared me too! I have no idea how well I've done especially seeing as I didn't take the other tests. Do you see what answers you got right/wrong? Avatar Image says: Great examn :) love all the new canon ^^!!Avatar Image says: how long do you have to wait for the results? all i see is a clock ticking with three different sections and the clock hand is in between 'results delivered' and 'paper being marked'....Avatar Image says: ****ATTN****ATTN****ATTN****ATTN**** PLEASE HELP! I tried going into three different browsers to take this test and that darn fly won't turn into a key! I have taken WOMBATs before and had this trouble once before and then inexplicably was able to get through. Any ideas? PLEASE HELP! ****ATTN****ATTN****ATTN****ATTN****Avatar Image says: Just went to Jo's site and the sign was back on the door. What gives?Avatar Image says: I never took the other tests, do you need an id # to take this one?Avatar Image says: how long will it take to submit the answers???? Avatar Image says: Arrgh - active content blocked by work browser! Have to wait til I get home... sigh...Avatar Image says: Everybody just thought i wud say try the UK site and click the "ENTER SITE" button with the ENGLISH FLAG!!!! below the text only version. Hope this helps. i tried for over an hour and it wasnt working... if that doesnt work try .net, .org and clear ur cookies etc etcAvatar Image says: Thank God for that. I haven't took a test before so I've not got an ID number.Avatar Image says: I love it that the WOMBATS are very fair... Ministers openly criticised...Policies laid bare... Loads of hints... Foreshadows a lot.Avatar Image says: I wonder how long the WOMBAT will be up? I kinda' want to wait until I can get my student I.D. but at the same time I don't want to take the risk! And that symbol, gahhh, what does it mean?Avatar Image says: I did my test on the German web page, so it should work in all languages...Avatar Image says: I knew it was close!!! I knew it!!!! Let's do it!!! okay, I'm a bit excited, sorryAvatar Image says: I can't get the fly to turn into a key!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well, I'll try tomorrow. *sigh* Avatar Image says: Me again, its alright i've finally got to do the test by going to jkrowling.net To help other people: Q: Do I need an ID to do the test? A: No, you'll be able to do the current test and you'll only have these results Q: Do I have to keep my ID safe? A: Yes, if you don't write your ID down EXACTLY as it says you'll never be able to pick up your results. Q: Am I able to do any of the past papers? A: No, since all the papers are created and marked* by JK Rowling herself, and she awards you one of the grades mentioned in HBP accordingly. (* marked is unknown, since she may have one of her editors to help her by giving them an answer-key) Q: How long will it take for my results to come? A: Results usually arrive 3 - 5 days after the whole wombat closes, keep your eyes peeled on the leaky cauldron site for the results date. Q: If you know all these answers are you JK Rowling or any of her publishers/editors? A: I wish! I'm just an ordinary boy with an extraordinary fascination with Harry Potter on many levels. Q: I can't find the wombat test paper. A: Click on the rubber on JK's desk, this will come up with the mysterious door, which has a pot plant on the table. After a while a fly shall land on teh window, click and hold the fly to turn it into a key, whilst still holding direct the key into the keyhole. This will cause the door to open, here you'll find 3 metal items placed upon the paper. Arrange them so the stick is at the bottom, with the circle in the middle and the triangle on top of the triangle. This will cause it to glow and move to one side, now you can click on the paper to begin it. (if the paper doesn't load go to the next question) Q: I can't get onto the Wombat, can someone help me? A: First of all (at time of printing) the UK site (jkrowling.co.uk) doesn't have the wombat test yet, I myself couldn't access the test from the US site (jkrowling.com) so if all else fails try the generic site (jkrowling.net) Hopes this help quite a few of you Dan (mad_eye_moody@hotmail[email protected])Avatar Image says: Whoa you guys, a lot of new stuff to talk about. That question about needing authorization to use a portkey to travel to another country. Remember the information about the opal-eye dragon on the deluxe cover...the antipod has something to do with if you were to go through the earth's diameter, the place you would end up, and for england, as we heard on pottercast was in australia, and the opal-eye dragon is found primarily in Australia. This is the hint from the question "do you need authorization to use a portkey if traveling to another country" or something like that. I think Jo is giving us the hint with this question that for sure harry, ron and hermione will be traveling to another country, possibly australia or egypt. I would have personally thought Albania since voldemort traveled there after he got turned to vapormort....something's there, i know it.Avatar Image says: *takes a deep breath* Not even Dumbledore himself would know the answers to those questions... Gawd, I'm pathetic. JK Rowling, I submit to your supremecy. *bows*Avatar Image says: Yippee! I'm all done my testing. I think the questions were a bit easier this time (towards the end). And today I'm going to see the Knight Bus! What a nice day!Avatar Image says: OMG NO *hurries off to website* aaaaaAvatar Image says: Yes vandy and Fran... they were hard in the beginning, but it's just so much fun I really don't care that much if I'm right or wrong. I could have cheated and looked a lot of it up on the Lexicon, but I'll feel good about it when my results come back. I hope we get something even more special after WOMBATS (besides book 7!!!).Avatar Image says: ok that was hard test..hope i did good.Avatar Image says: Becca-I've never seen what answers I got right or wrong. (But I wish we would!) I'm always worried when I take these things. But then I wind up doing better than I thought I did. I think we'll get a few chapter titles. That's about the only thing we haven't gotten yet. With a little more than a month to go, we deserve something! Good luck everyone!Avatar Image says: please help kind people, my circle doesn't sparkle, where do I have to put it, on shich line? please Help! sos!Avatar Image says: That was pretty difficult. I don't think I did as well on that as the other two. We'll find out soon enough. I just hope I passed. Avatar Image says: oooooooo do we really get chapter-titles????sorry for asking silly questions , but i have a doubt...will we get rewards??Avatar Image says: I've taken it 3 times seeing as we won't get another chance to take it again! I'll probably end up taking it a few more times as well before it gets taken off.Avatar Image says: Can someone please explain to me how anyone, other than JK Rowling herself could answer some of these questions? Especially those on History of Magic. Also, some of the questions seem very subjective. Without explanation to back up your answer one is as valid as the other.Avatar Image says: Blimey, that was hard!Avatar Image says: Wow - we've gotten an amazing number of hints through this test! I'm even more excited to read the 7th book as I was before to see how all this new information enters in.Avatar Image says: How do you go about getting a student ID to begin with?Avatar Image says: how long until we get the results?Avatar Image says: Okay, I thought some of those were really difficult questions. I did my best. But how can you be graded on questions that begin "In your opinion"? I mean it's my opinion, how can it be wrong? I always questioned tests in school that were formed that way. I think I did okay on the third section but the best are up in the air. I always liked Gred and Forge's assertion that they should have gotten "Exceeds Expectations" just for showing up. That's the way I feel about tests. Good luck everyone!Avatar Image says: Mmmmmm. Tough test! Hope I passed.Avatar Image says: I can't get into the room to take my test I've clicked on the fly and doble clicked but nothing happens....help!!!Avatar Image says: That was hard. Well the last section was really easy, but the bit about what happened to the various ministers for magic was REALLY hard. I guessed them all apart from (the obvious!) one.Avatar Image says: Yea, Wombat!!! Wonder if our results will lead to Chapter titles or passages to read??!? =)Avatar Image says: Maaan, that was hard. Harder than GCSEs, I'd say. Avatar Image says: Wow! Jo gave us a hard time with this WOMBAT! This is my first and I guessed most of the answers specially in the first sections! The last section was OK... But I was glad that I managed to enter the test and make it. :)Avatar Image says: that history stuff was extremely difficult. Yikes. Avatar Image says: Wow, the questions are insane.Avatar Image says: Hi, could someone help me please? I've never taken WOMBAT before and I don't really understand how to get to tak the test. Everytime I try to click on the 'WOMBAT' sign on the main page it just asks me for my student identification code which i don't have. What should I do??Avatar Image says: i can't get the fly to stay still long enough for me to click on it. help Avatar Image says: Katie- don't click on the WOMBAT sign, click on the rubber to get to Jo's office door =)Avatar Image says: just finished it wiht 15 minutes to spare.....i wouldve checked it over....but it was so hard that i don't think i got half of them right and im starving since i still havent eaten breakfast......Avatar Image says: it wasn't that hard, and it only took around 10-15 mins. :]Avatar Image says: Lexicon didn't help me much with that one LOL but I don't think I lost my head.Avatar Image says: Man oh man that was hard. The whole first section was pretty much pure guess work!Avatar Image says: Does anybody have any idea how long the door usually remains open for WOMBATs? Avatar Image says: got it to work. that was hard. hope i did okay. can't wait till i get my score.Avatar Image says: This is the first time I figured my way into the door without peeking in the comments at Leaky (and last opportunity to do so)! I loved all the clues. JK is so clever. Anyone think the often-referred-to goblin rebellion will finally be signifigant in the story?Avatar Image says: I can't take it now! I'm about to go have lunch with my best friend! I can't wait to take it! OMG!!! I've been waiting for this for a while. I knew we'd be getting one of these soon: either that or chapter titles. Yaaaaay!!!Avatar Image says: That was an unprecedentedly revealing test from JK there.. In particular I liked the question on Goblin Rebellions and the Ministers for Magic. So Egypt is home to the centre for Alchemical studies is it.... intriguing....Avatar Image says: I am so excited. This is the first time I´ve taken the WOMBAT. The questions were really hard, IMO. Most of my answers (at least in the History of Magic section) were guesswork. I just hope I don´t come out dreadful. If I fail, I will do it royally, I wanna come out 'Troll'. :) I was a bit disappointed about the door-opening thing. It was much too easy, IMO. It was much more sophisticated in December when we were given the title. Avatar Image says: Guess it's official. In the muggle world i have a IQ of 154. In the wizarding world I guess I have a lot to learn. Bring on the books JK. I need them bad. No really the only part I did do good in was like Harry. Dark ARTS in which I excel in and History in which I am am less than a troll. BE YOURSELF and BE HAPPY about itAvatar Image says: This is the first one where I've really wanted to know some of the answers, I mean, are some Patronuses weaker than others, and all that history stuff and the Goblins, and the legends that turned out to be true. I can't even remember them all. I took notes as I went along. The world's largest centre for Alchemical Studies, that's bound to be important. But is it in Egypt? Or France? Where did Flamel live? Is there an inter-country ban on Apparition and portkeys and do you have to get permission to send owls overseas? I want to know! I hope she tells us. I decided there were witches and wizards in every country but not schools everywhere. I think some smaller countries who have the same language might share a school. What Faris "Spout-Hole" Spavin the minister they all protested when he was named? That's going to bother me all day! Leaky, your article should say you're allowed 35 min. for the test. It took me probably around 25, and that was with taking notes. I could have finished quicker if I had just answered the questions and not decided I wanted to refer to them later for reference (I can just see me, sitting and reading the Deathly Hallows and I see the name of one of the goblins (their names are all a muddle in my mind, I forget them as soon as I see them unless I have them written someplace to refer to) and I would wonder whether it was one of those mentioned on the Wombat. So, now I'll be able to know for sure, maybe it will help me gain some insight. I thought this was the best of the 3 test. Very interesting, I can't wait to get my score, but more, I really want to know the right answers. Do I sound like Hermione at all?Avatar Image says: Accio_HP7, yes, but don't forget to take the code after you are done. You will find out, how good were all your attempts. Just copy and paste. Avatar Image says: I took the examination. It was as hard as the others; with some questions you think how are you supposed to answer these having not attended Hogwarts. But I suppose if you thought hard you would guess correctly. I wonder if within the exam context there were hintings for the plot of 'Deathly Hallows'(37 days). Avatar Image says: *****SPOILER*** Lawrd, that seemed much shorter than the other ones. I had no idea what the antidote to Draught... was. Anyone else? -BAvatar Image says: Eek! I was just excalimign aloud that I was expecting the last one on the Solstice when I logged onto Leaky and saw this. Maybe we'll get the results, or the rewards for our results then?Avatar Image says: I hope she gives us all the answers after this is over! I really want to know whether animals can be transfigured into humans. I'm guessing not!Avatar Image says: I can never get the fun features on the site to work. The "portkeys" work and get me to the other sections of the site, but when I click on the fly nothing happens, and I can't seem to drag it either. HELP! Is this a computer issue, or something with the site? Any suggestions?Avatar Image says: I can't click the fly either... how very SAD!! Suggestions?Avatar Image says: I'm so happy I finally figured out how to open the door and solve the problem on my own. I went to her site before coming to Leaky. I was stunnned to see the door open. I was hoping for chapter titles, but I settled for the W.O.M.B.A.T. :-)Avatar Image says: ok I took mine, I guessed on most, I wouldn't even know where to look them up.Avatar Image says: I cant get it to not show the do-not-disturb...darn dangnab work computer! I will have to try tonight, hopefully it will still off... I had a feeling this would be coming sooner or later, we neeeded another W.O.M.B.A.T... Avatar Image says: bah, dont have my id here at work. ehhAvatar Image says: How is it possible that I lost my previous WOMBAT ID number again! This one was very intriguing. I think Jo may be a bit of a tease; this all will make much more sense after book 7Avatar Image says: On the 'Extra Stuff' section of JK Rowling's site (click on the hairbrush), what do I have to write on the blank sheat on the right? I know what to do with the eraser and I know how to pick up the pen and write with it but I don't know what to write!!! Also, what does that breeze, cackling and things breaking thing mean? Does it have any significance or affect to the site??? Please help me!!!Avatar Image says: BabyMandrake- I put 'Bezoar' for that one, as I had no idea what would cure it & that was the only potion-related thing I could think would work [only other option would have been NO CURE, I guess?] Tapanga- I think [if I remember rightly] that pen is the one where you have to keep clicking on it until it smashes; the ink will run about until you see a clue on what other things you need to collect. And the breeze thing has no significance as far as I'm aware.Avatar Image says: Oh wow. Oh wow. That was intense. Avatar Image says: I just can not click the fly!!! Is it because off I am not fast enough??? Pleas help!!!!Avatar Image says: Well I just tried what was suggested only one hour after it posted on how to get in the door...(i.e. holding mouse button down on fly on window) and it didn't work. Must have been a limited time offer. :(Avatar Image says: too bad i am at work and left my id at home. oh well. i guess i will have to wait another 4 hours!Avatar Image says: I just reenterd the site and the do not disturb sign was on the door again... :(Avatar Image says: Hello Everyone, Just a quick word for those who (like me) use Mozilla Firefox, did you have trouble grabbing the fly ? Because I couldn't touch it, everytime I got close to it, it would fly away. With Internet Explorer, I had no trouble at all. Is it the same for all of us ?Avatar Image says: My fly won't stand still either. From the instructions, it sounds like the fly shouldn't move when you put your mouse on him, but mine takes off like there's rancid meat in the next room. Same happens when he flies to the mirror. I've tried going in and out of the room via the eraser portkey a few times, but still nothing. Aargh.Avatar Image says: :( I can't remember my student ID... :( :( :( i suppose I can still take it... but... then it won't let have all of them together... ahh!! I know i saved it onto my computer SOMEWHERE!Avatar Image says: I use Firefox, but had no trouble grabbing the key. Also, I just went back to the room, and the Do Not Disturb sign is definitely NOT there--perhaps you need to refresh your browser window? Avatar Image says: Firefox worked great for me :)Avatar Image says: Ok, first when you enter the room you will not see the "Do not disturb" sign on the the door, if you do, go into your browsers history and clear out all of the cache and file and then reload the browser and everything should work fine. It did take me two or three attempts to get the key into the lock, but it will just revert back to the fly on the window plane, just go back and get it and try again until you get the right angle. John B.Avatar Image says: For those who are having trouble turning the fly into a key- I had a lot of trouble at the beginning, and then I went on jkrowling.net and clicked on the british flag in the bottom left area. Then I went through the steps and it worked! I hope this helps! For those who are still getting a do not disturb sign- My friend just took the WOMBAT a couple minutes ago and it worked fine, if you havn't already, go to jkrowling.net and then click on the British flag entrance way in the bottom left area. This worked for me, I hope it works for you! I also have a couple questions--- Thank you Becca for the advice with the pen, but it actually wasn't for the pen I was talking about. This pen is in the Extra Stuff section (click the hairbrush) and its to the left of a notebook. When you click on it, you can pick it up and I know how to write with it but I just don't know what to write. I also have a question about the Rubbish Bin page (click the pencil sharpener). First, I can't figure out what the word magnets on the bottom are supposed to say. I know I have to rearrange them, but I don't know what to arrange them into. Also, when I spin the coffee mug around a couple times, the grinds create a circle, what am I supposed to do with this? I hope this has helped some people out as well as given them some hints about how to get things on the site....It would be great if you could help me as well! Thank You!!Avatar Image says: ok, firstly, i've read some comments where you guys are anxious to get your score. that probably won't happen til NEXT WEEK, so feel free to step away from your computer. ALSO, can anybody tell what's on that paper on the desk? i didn't notice it until after i finished the wombat. but there's definitely something there. it's in the shadows and you can only see part of it. it kinda looks like a page from a book....? maybe that's just hopeful thinking.Avatar Image says: you drag the fly to keep it a key :)Avatar Image says: I didn't know almost anything, but I tried it just for fun. I think I atleast got most of the spell cures. How do people know this information? :)Avatar Image says: If your key doesn't work, make sure that you are in the UK version of the site not the accesable one. Good luck!!!!!! I can. not. wait. to find out what theat symbol means!Avatar Image says: I just took the WOMBAT and gosh it was a BEAR! At least I got all the last ones right but those ones about the ministers of magic and goblin rebellions were hard. I hope, I pray I did ok. I wish I'd gotten a chance to take the last ones. Oh, gosh, someone give me a hug! I can't stand the wait! : )Avatar Image says: The symbol, the symbol, the symbol. What does it all mean??? Will Harry have to assemble the symbol like we did in order to get at something??? Hurry up July 21!Avatar Image says: Which line do we place the circle? Cause I've been trying and its not sparkling at all...Avatar Image says: Help! The fly won't turn into a key!Avatar Image says: I need help I can't get to the test :(Avatar Image says: I'm in the middle of my finals right now. I don't know what to do... Calculus or WOMBAT??? Darn it I guess the WOMBAT will have to wait till tomorrow :( . I really want to do it... but I won't do as well if im worrying about calculus instead. lol. Well I'm gonna get back to studying! Why does calculus always get in the way of HP stuff for me?Avatar Image says: did anyone else notice that her desk was cleaned off this time? It kinda made me sad, showing that she's no longer at that desk working on the books :( Am I gonna need grief counseling after the last book or what?!Avatar Image says: If the fly won't turn into a key, make sure you aren't on the accessible version of the site by reentering the site through one of the flag marked buttons.Avatar Image says: I LOVED the questions this time, alot of them BIG Clues for DH and stuff from previous books. The Minister questions were hard!!! I loved the which spell, potion or cure is needed. Thanks JK for an awesome but difficult quiz i needed it!!!Avatar Image says: For those who are not able to make the test appear: go to jkrowling.net, in the british area of the site, and everything will work. Just have a little patience!Avatar Image says: After taking the WOMBAT, I noticed a red bottle and green bottle on the table under the window next to the eraser. When you click and drag them up to the window, they drip onto the plant below. Anyone know what this is? Or am I just behind the times?Avatar Image says: Just took it!!! Some were mad hard but others were quite easy!!!Avatar Image says: For those of you who have questions about how to get to some of the other (non-WOMBAT-related) stuff on Jo's site, visit the lexicon (www.hp-lexicon.org) and check out their ultimate guide to Jo's site. They will tell you step by step how to get to everything. That WOMBAT was fun. Now I have to wait (not so patiently) for my scores. *twiddles thumbs* I hope maybe once we're done with all 3 she'll tell us what the right answers were. Is that too much to hope for? Think of all the new canon that would be!! So do you think we get a reward for doing them all? Someone mentioned chapter titles. Makes sense to me. Avatar Image says: I have never taken a WOMBAT before so I didn't know what to expect... I bet I failed :( The questions were really hard...Avatar Image says: There's also a vista widget up on her site, unless that was already posted...Avatar Image says: that was.. very hard. I had about 10 seconds to go when I finished it!Avatar Image says: Ahhhh....how I love Jo!!! That was a very difficult test, especially the questions about the former Ministers. I do hope after this is all done, she puts up the tests and correct answers for us to look through. Finally, that symbol must really be important, since it's now the key to getting to take the WOMBAT! I cannot wait to get my hands on the book!Avatar Image says: MarkBlack- I think those things at the edge of her desk are the newspaper etc from the main "desk" view of her site, so it's supposed be a different view of the same desk... it's been designed like that before but this time it looks like the desk has been almost cleared so that there's room for the exam paper =)Avatar Image says: I've followed Leakys directions, Drag the circle over the line...it is not sparkeling, then I try the triangle ontop of that...it still does not sparkle. Arghhh, frustrating!Avatar Image says: REALLY hard...But fun...loads of theories shall be born...Avatar Image says: I have never taken any of them before and i'm about to try 3 but can I take 1 and 2 now?? or is it too late and I just have to stick with 3??Avatar Image says: Mine just keeps flashing the load bar at me over and over. So, no WOMBAT for Robbie ... Also, I was a bit disappointed that all we're getting this close to release date is another test ...Avatar Image says: Just like when the title was released, her site isn't working for me! WHen i click the fly, nothing happens!! :'(Avatar Image says: Alas, no WOMBAT for me either, if I can't solve the simple task of clicking on the fly. I've even held him to the window several times, but click as many times as I have, no key! I take it JKR's site still works for us ancient dial-up access types? Avatar Image says: I've gotten through clicking the test, but i only have a dark screen, like i still see the open door with the desk sitting there, but the lights are turned off, and its been this way for about 30 minutes. is it supposed to take a long time to load, or is there something wrong? Avatar Image says: Aargh! I'm frustrated to tears here! (not really) Every time I re-enter the site, the first time I click the eraser the do not disturb sign is on the door, but when I go in a second time it's gone. And when I try and click on the fly it just acts as it always does and flies away! Please help me! Avatar Image says: Ok guys..... Here's some tips for getting to the WOMBAT if you're having some kinda problems: 1) try the .net or .org versions of the site, it's the same thing just .net/org 2) Try cleaning out your cookies, this works for a lot of people when they still have the sign on the door! 3) Don't use the Accessibility Enabled Version, it doesn't work for most. Hope this helped some people!!Avatar Image says: ok..I really need help. the triangles and circles and the line is NOT working for me HELP!!!!!Avatar Image says: who thinks that test was rife with hidden spoilers?Avatar Image says: I just took the test and I dont think it was that hard. Ok, there were stuff that you just had to guess but also a lot of stuff that you were able to deduce from some earlier information. At once I had the patience to get the door open myself and not to come straight here and get the instructions beforehand. This is great!Avatar Image says: Elizabeth, no you can't take the wombat tests 1 and 2 anymore, they've long since gone. The earlier tests stayed behind the door for about a week and were gone, and a bit after that we got the results. It's most likely going to be that way now as well, so take your test now before it's gone again!Avatar Image says: that was a hard one! I really didn't know any of the history stuff. It's how Harry and Ron must have felt.. Avatar Image says: I guess I ought to be worried that the only answers I knew anything to were about the Dark Arts. (am I right that there's no cure for the Draught of Living Death?)Avatar Image says: Mischief managed! Finally got the fly by using jkrowling.net instead of the usual website. But what a Wombat test awaits you! Avatar Image says: Just a little reminder that you guys need to remove the thing at the bottom of the page that says, "The Leaky Cauldron has answered e-mail containing the question, "How do I get a W.O.M.B.A.T. student ID?" 207 times to date. (Literally. You can't get one, guys; the test is closed.)." ...You know since there is a new WOMBAT out now...Avatar Image says: the exam was kinda hard.. I hope I did fine.. u think these questions have relation with the DH.. I hope so =D my mind is already registering all the possibilities and what the questions really might hide.Avatar Image says: Grr I am second guessing my devils snare answer, I went with the book answer but I think I should have gone movie because the answer I used matched the next baddie. I'm pretty sure I did really bad on this one.Avatar Image says: I can't get in! I've tried both .com and .net and when I click on the fly nothing happens, it doesn't even fly! Help I've never tooken a WOMBAT and I've waited so long! Great now it doesn't work. :(Avatar Image says: Melanie: try cleaning out your cookies! it might work.... and if your not try using the British versionAvatar Image says: Wow, that was pretty tough in some parts. I confess, for the first time in all three wombats I finally looked up one question in the Lexicon. I couldn't remember what the Draught of Living Death was, though I remembered it was in one of Harry's first Potions classes in HBP. But looking it up didn't really help. :) Was it just me, or was most of that guesswork? I'm pretty sure we haven't seen a lot of that information/those answers before. I hope I guessed well!Avatar Image says: I finally was able to click on the fly using http://wwww.jkrowling.co.uk and clicking on the british flag. Does anyone know what to do with the two bottles below the window? I didn't see these bottles at jkrowling.com One bottle has green liquid in it and the other has red liquid. I can drag them up and turn the bottles so drops drip out onto the plant. Also, on the co.uk site I was able to download a "vista gadget." It looks like a stamp above her watch. I didn't see this on her .com or .net site. "Download and install the Official JK Rolwing Gadget for your desktop."Avatar Image says: twilightdew: The bottles can be used to cure the dying plant, if you pour them on in a certain order. The raido says the order on the "Extra Sturr" link. By the way, if anyone's having trouble getting to the WOMBATs post and I'll try and help, if i don't get banned for posting too much :)Avatar Image says: I appreciate all the folks who were up early commenting on the WOMBAT in the comments on the news about Emma's pictures ... roonwit & whoever told me to click on the fly!!!!Avatar Image says: I just took it. I don't know if I did so well. I hope I did okay. I hope I at least got an E. That's what I got on the first one and I got an O on the second. Avatar Image says: Hmmm. I didn't take the second wombat and lost my numbers from the first one so I hope that I don't miss out... though I'm sure I can figure out what is released from the site. FUN!!!!!!!!!! Avatar Image says: Did anyone else have to use a lot of sort-of-educated guesses on some of these? The only one about the Ministers that I'm sure about is Fudge, and I made it to, like, the fourth minister before I realized that that one went with him...lol.Avatar Image says: Gosh! The first three parts of the exam were really hard, I dont think I will even achieve an "A" this time.... P.D.Can something destroy/stop an inferi? I mean, they are already dead, so you cant kill it...Avatar Image says: the fly won't change into a key...help please...Avatar Image says: oh my goodness as if i needed more exam results to wait for (waiting to find out how i did on my degree!) happy and all but i really could have waited another two days! having kittens here! Avatar Image says: kellyn: try using the .net version of the site! or the .org!Avatar Image says: Wow, it was hard!!!! But it was GREAT!!!Avatar Image says: Wow! The history and theory bits were seriously difficult. I got an outstanding on the last one but I really had to guess an awful lot of those questions! I did love the historical theories, especially the ones about Anne Boleyn and the Great Fire of London. There was a heck of a lot about Goblins which seems like a heavy hint to me, given the UK DH cover. What I really liked was the theory about Rowena Ravenclaw and Hogwarts which may be the first bit of info about her I've seen on that site!!! Oh and those of you who can't guess the Millicent Bagnold question need to go and re-read PS/SS!Avatar Image says: SQUEEE!!! I did it, can hardly wait to see what my first WOMBAT scores are.... ohh the wait is agonizing!Avatar Image says: Anyone feel like giving specific instructions on the line, triangle & circle, once you get through the door. I don't know what the DH is supposed to look like! - thanks!Avatar Image says: Ok, so long has anybody had to wait for their answers to post? I've had the little symbol going for 10 minutes now... Everyone must be submitting at once, tonight. I'm not locked up at all, just don't dare close the window!Avatar Image says: I took too long and it was too hard. You need to finish quickly. I think I missed an entire section! T for me, oh well.Avatar Image says: Hey, I've not done the wombat's yet. How do I get a student id number?Avatar Image says: Does anyone remember how long it took to get the results last time? And how long the results page stayed up? Because I'll be going on vacation soon for a month and I really don't want to miss getting my results graded!Avatar Image says: Kate: put the little rod though the middle of the circle. after you get it right, it'll sparkle once. then pick up the rod/circle and put it in the middle of the triangle.Avatar Image says: Meritina....with the Inferi... This may be a Wombat Spoiler thing so be warned folks... remember the lake and what Dumbledore did....teh cover of the British HBP...... Avatar Image says: divaleder: you can't get a student ID code till after you take the WOMBATs... you could get one the last time the door opened with the grade 2 WOMBATs!Avatar Image says: Thanks christianaeg!Avatar Image says: thanks for the info christianaeg. does that mean I can't do the WOMBAT? Avatar Image says: Nope! you can still go ahead and do them. the ID code from before is just so you can see all your test scores at the same time!Avatar Image says: When do we get our results?????Avatar Image says: Best WOMBAT to date; I loved all of the historical questions and the intertwining of muggle events. If the theory I formed with the first WOMBAT test holds true (that the WOMBAT test are secretly giving us loads of HP7/DH spoilers), then I have a very good theory of the direction that the story is going in... and I like it!Avatar Image says: Sara- about a week after the door closes!Avatar Image says: When will the door close? (Thanks for the quick answer.) :DAvatar Image says: Sara- Don't know... probably 3-6 days!Avatar Image says: Man, was that hard! I blew it, I know it. The last bit was easy enough but the first part was H A R D! How did you guys do?Avatar Image says: I have to hit the hay now so here's a general guide to getting into the WOMBATs: 1) Make sure you did everything right 2) try the .net version of the site, or the .org! 3) clean out your cookies 4) Don't use the accessibility enabled version of the site, it doesn't work. Use the British version. hope this helped! i'll be back tomorrow to help people! but if you want, send me an email( my username at mugglenet.com)! bye!Avatar Image says: Hey - I've got a little mystery I want solved. Can anyone help? My little sister was trying to get through the door but wasn't able to do so. I came over to help her and saw a very weird thing. Instead of the potted plant, there was a vase of daffodils. We were unable to get the fly to change in to the key, so I had her take the eraser back out to the desk and then come back in. When we did, the daffodils were gone, replaced by the plant and the fly turned in to the key. What the heck was that about?!?!Avatar Image says: I keep getting locked out, I get the key, open the door, put the circle on the stick, it twinkles, puts the triangle over those, it twinkles and moves up off the test, then I click on the test and everything just locks up! Is this happening to any one else?Avatar Image says: Wow...some interesting questions... The one about the Sorting Hat...any cluse, you think? (I HATE THAT SYMBOL)Avatar Image says: SPOILER! SPOILER! First the spider, then the fly.Avatar Image says: Hey - did anyone else see a vase of daffodils? Instead of the potted plant??Avatar Image says: ok, I'm in =D if it waren't for leaky! thanx!Avatar Image says: For the first time I could truly relate to Ron. This was hard!!! The Dark Arts section was easy but the History stuff..well... I did a Weasley and just made stuff up.Avatar Image says: what do i di with the shapes?????Avatar Image says: i just cant get the combination correct...the paper wont open...its getting to frustate me now... Avatar Image says: Tough one! *whew*Avatar Image says: That has to be one of the hardest things i have ever done! I ended up having to make things up... Avatar Image says: I can get to the site, but when I click on the rubber, the page dims, and the spider still crawls across it, but it just sits there, no loading bar or anything! I've tried all sorts of different versions of the sites and cleared out my cookies, too. Anyone else having this problem? D:Avatar Image says:

I was having trouble even after trying all of your wonderful suggestions. I finally got in because I went on to the UK site. It was a piece of cake after that. Have fun!

Avatar Image says:

Oh god I feel like Hermione! lol… I keep going over all the questions and realizing ones I got wrong!!!! I know I got the antidote to Drought of living death wrong!!!!!!! lol…

Avatar Image says:

Rosa-I’ve been doing the same thing! I’m really nervous about this one. More so than the other two! Good luck everyone!

Avatar Image says:

yessssssssssss!! the third and final wombat :):):):):):):)....quite hard though…

Avatar Image says:

Fionnuala—Yeah, if the results are delivered about in the same time as they have been- we should get them the day before/the day of the Summer Solstice!! woot woot! In exactly a week…

Avatar Image says:

Anna, press the “on” button of the radio in the extra stuff page (click on the brush to get there) and it will tell you what to do with the bottles !

Avatar Image says:

AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t get the fly to turn into a key! I’ve tried the British website, .com .net and .org, and it still doesn’t work. I’m thinking about trying the spanish one and translating every question. That might take too long though.

: ( What if I can’t ever do it!!!sobs

Avatar Image says:

So sorry for the double post!!

Andromeda’s Hero, yes I have a vase of daffodils, too. Have you gotten your key yet???

Avatar Image says:

For the people with the daffodils, do you still have the bottles of potion next to it?

Avatar Image says:

I’ll already done everything and the screen trun black and it nothing!!!!

Avatar Image says:

For all you guys who are still having trouble with the fly, click it fast because it changes from a fly to a key and back to a fly in a few seconds.

Avatar Image says:

Guys, what are the levels of scores for the WOMBAT? I know the highest is wizard and the lowest is troll, but what is in between?? If you dont know, could you tell m where I could find it??

Avatar Image says:

I too am unable to change the fly into a key. Am I too late already? There are daffodils on the table, and the fly lands on the window, and the “DO NOT DISTURB” sign is gone…but no fly turning into a key. Help?

Avatar Image says:

It is the first time I have been online when the WOMBATS are going on…..Still Hermione will be upset with me….I think I was snoozing in Prof. Binns class. Despite reading them all a billion times (ok 7 each) I still don’t know that I did well

Avatar Image says:

When you click on the key, keep holding the mouse button down while dragging the key to the door. If you let go of the button, it turns back into a fly.

Avatar Image says:

If anone i still having trouble, try turning off your pop-up blocker

Avatar Image says:

Darn, it’s been checking my student identification code for like 10 minutes now. Anyone have that problem?

Avatar Image says:

Does anyone but me find JKR’s website incredibly annoying. Argh!!! I really hate all the gongs and whistles and machinations one has to go through and then there is a paucity of useful information. And since I am ranting, my WOMBAT no is so complicated that even written down, I still mistype it. Do you think she really means it to be this difficult and annoying?

Avatar Image says:

Oy! Do not bitch about Jo OR her website!

Hehe, just kidding.

Whew, that one was haaaard. And it’s taking about twenty minutes so far to submit my answers….argh!

Scared.

I’m going to get a Troll shakes in shoes

Avatar Image says:

Ok. Definitely can’t get the darn puzzle right. Care to help?

Avatar Image says:

Frederieke, I’m having the same problem. Both on the test and on the WOMBAT card, I enter my ID and it just sits there forever. I only took the first one, not the second, maybe that’s it?

Avatar Image says:

Hmmm, interesting how the draught of living death comes up again… was mentioned in PS but haven’t seen it since? Mini clue maybe?

Avatar Image says:

Call me lame but as I was finishing, I started to tear up. This is the last one!

Avatar Image says:

Guys!!! What are the possible WOMBAT scores?

Avatar Image says:

I’m having problems, too…I took the whole test, but it’s been hung up on the “submitting your answers” screen for 45 minutes.

Avatar Image says:

Is it taking forever to submit your answers?

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, submitting is taking years for me too. Has been there for nearly as hour now…

Avatar Image says:

So do we just sit here and wait? Gahh. This stinks.

Avatar Image says:

grrr it looks really slow for everyone…. on every site there’s people saying how long they’ve waited… you guys have the current record i think :)

Avatar Image says:

The possible wombat scores are this:

O= Outstanding E= Exceeds Expectation A= Acceptable P= Poor D= Dreadfull T= Troll

Avatar Image says:

It must be because so many of us all over the world are submitting at the same time.

Pttttccccch.

Avatar Image says:

I think I’ll just go to bed and leave it all night. Lets hope that my answers will be submitted by morning. I tried taking the test again but it won’t work. It takes ages and ages…

Avatar Image says:

Well I left it on last night, but my system did a MS update while I was asleep – now I don’t know if it saved or not. Guess I’ll try again when I get home tonight. Blecchhh.

Avatar Image says:

this is so, so frustrating. the fly doesn’t move, it doesn’t turn into a key, it just sits there. i tried upgrading flash, i’ve tried four different versions of this website, and it just sits there. are you guys all on windows machines? have i been using incorrect clicking technique for all these years? SOOO MAD. what is wrong with so many people’s computers, including the three that i’ve tried, that this has been such a common problem? come on jo, pay them to make sure it works next time!

Avatar Image says:

Why is the do not disturb sign up again?

Avatar Image says:

filliam h. muffman- did you try cleaning out your cookies?-

Avatar Image says:

For those who see flowers instead, did you already do the Easter Egg challenge with the drops?

That’s why they’re, you’ve already put the tonic on the plants to help them grow.

Avatar Image says:

Still isn’t working. Day #2. I’m going to shoot my computer. (sarcasm….................maybe!) bye bye!

Avatar Image says:

the_rising_phoenix- what’s the problem? i might be able to help!!

Avatar Image says:

chrisitanaeg – just tried it, no luck! I thought i had tried that before too but i thought i would double check. thanks though!

the_rising_phoenix – ditto.

Avatar Image says:

guys, try this one http://www.jkrowling.net/en and left click on the fly and don’t let it go :)

Avatar Image says:

filliam h. muffman- did you try jkrowling.org?

Avatar Image says:

in case anyone else is still having trouble, and for some reason deleting cache and cookies doesnt solve the problem, as it didn’t for me, copy and paste this directly into your browser and it should load properly (finally): http://www.jkrowling.com/f7b3qash/level_0.swf

thank goodness for nerdy husbands!

ps: chrisitanaeg – i did, and .us and .net, and .co.uk, etc! oh, i don’t know what the problem was, but i’m glad its over, and thanks very much for your help!

Avatar Image says:

I’ve tried all of the ways you said and none of them work

Avatar Image says:

Still waiting…...4 hours now…...:(

Avatar Image says:

Shelbz- did you follow all the directions? stacking the shapes till they sparkle? all that jazz? i guess you’ve tried all the different versions of the site too? (.org .net .com .co.uk) have you tried jorowling.com?? the link that filliam h. muffman posted?

Avatar Image says:

So, I just got home, decided to try the wombats again – entered my number and voila! it let me retake! Apparently it had NOT saved my answers before the silly update closed my computer down last night. This time the answers uploaded with no problems! I think I did ok in the last two sections, but section 1 drove me nuts. Definitely did not pay attention in history class!

Avatar Image says:

it worked i figured it out

Avatar Image says:

It is taking forever to score my test!!!!:’(

Avatar Image says:

I think she won’t begin grading them until after the door closes.

Avatar Image says:

Woo! It worked! I think it was because I was using Firefox.

Avatar Image says:

OK, it’s still “checking my student identification code”, and it’s been nearly six hours. I should at least be able to see my old scores, shouldn’t I?

Avatar Image says:

I was able to take it by going to jkrowling.net and clicking the British flag. Thangs to whoever mentioned it.

Which questions (if any) do you think the pertain to Deathly Hallows?

Avatar Image says:

Do you guys know if there’s any way of taking the older tests now? I missed these when they were online.

Avatar Image says:

Do you think the results will be there before, or after DH will be relesed????? Just think there might be some clues hidden in the test…

Avatar Image says:

Took my test. I needed a day to think,remember, and guess, lol. Think I did ok. I hope so. I haven’t been this nervous since I went to school, that was years ago. We should get our answers within a few weeks. Definetly before the book. And hopefully, we might get a chapter, or two? who knows. I do think that some of the questions did relate to what is in book 7. Like the Draught of Living Death. This is so emotional now isn’t it? It’s ending. NOOO!!!

Avatar Image says:

It’s so ironic, I wait impatiently for Jo to open the door for anything, and now that I’ve taken the WOMBAT, I’m waiting impatiently for her to put the sign back up so I know the tests are being graded! LOL!!

Avatar Image says:

And then I get so impatient with the comments that I accidently post twice! Sorry about that everyone!

Avatar Image says:

I just finished my W.O.M.B.A.T. test. I hope I did okay… Anyone know how long it takes to get the results back?

Avatar Image says:

Guys, just refreshing the question of….. what hints do you think we can get out of this WOMBAT???

Avatar Image says:

i’m studying the spine of all the books.i do not see such a symbol

Avatar Image says:

So what is the story with Anne Boleyn? I know her portrait is along the staircase at Hogwarts. Are the Boleyns or the Howards or both wizarding families?

Avatar Image says:

what is the paper (obscured) to the right on the desk? can anyone get a look at it?

Avatar Image says:

Okay i took the womabat and it gave a student id thing but when i go to use it it keeps telling me does not recongnise what am i doing wrong and the door is still open and the fly is still flying around did i mess up somewhere?

Avatar Image says:

its not working for me!!

I’m clicking on the fly but nothing happens…

it just stays a fly sitting on the window.

how do I fix this?

Avatar Image says:

Make sure you have entered the BRITISH version, not the accessibility enabled version…It was hard, I had butterflies the whole time….I can’t stand the wait for the results…....Did anyone know the Minister/ major upheaval questions? Of course I got Cornelius, but I didn’t know any of the others. I couldn’t even find the answers aferwards….I’m about to read the books in order again before the 21st…I’ll probably get through them twice…I’m taking notes this time….

Avatar Image says:

DO NOT WORRY LEAKY COMMUNITY, I HAVE FINISHED MY WOMBAT.

Avatar Image says:

I had been having a lot of trouble getting the fly to transfiguar, I had tried clearing my cookies, I tried .net. Nothing was working. Finally I clicked on the Brittish Flag for english text just to try and reset the cookies that way and worked fine.

If nothing seemes to be working for anyone else, try clicking on the flag for your perfered language.

I missed out on the first two and was pn the verge of panic that I would miss this one as well. Hope I do Ravenclaws justice!! If I do poorly I might have to renounce my house out of pure shame.

Avatar Image says:

I am v. dense where’s the door? Never mind the fly etc – where’s the door??

Avatar Image says:

Just for the person asking about the pen and paper on the extras page. once when i was in the links page, instead of the picture on the left of the bookcase, i got a square of paper with the lightning scar on it. when i went into extras and drew the scar it gave me one of the sparkly things for extra content. it doesn’t seem to work though unless it has given you the paper prompt on the links page.

I’ve never taken the WOMBAT before, when they post the results, is it obvious where to put your student ID number?

plus, i got the dying plant / bottle thing by accident, can’t believe i’ve been listening to it on the radio for weeks!! should have checked this site out earlier.

And finally to the person waiting over 35 minutes for the pc to send information, your pc has hung. you need to give it up, go back into the website and start again. it did it to me first time i sat my test.

btw thanks for the hint about the shape.

Avatar Image says:

This symbol thing is not working for me!! I don’t know what you mean on the cover of DH! Is it on it? HELP??

Avatar Image says:

Thank you so much people.

Avatar Image says:

how to click on the fly? it’s gone before i can get hold of it. is it too late to try on june 18? oh HELP! can i take the WOMBAT if i have never taken it before? grr… help help help!!!

Avatar Image says:

Level-3 W.O.M.B.A.T. testing is now closed. The door is closed and the “DO NOT DISTURB” sign is back in place.

There is no way to take this (or any previous) test or to get a Student ID number so leave the Leaky staff alone, please.

Avatar Image says:

The Wombat Results have been delivered!!

Avatar Image says:

Pleasae can some kind sole help me! Every one has been going on the wombat test but i havent even got an identification code for the WOMBAT club. Can you tell me how to get one please! i feel left out:( Thanks

Avatar Image says:
