Harry did not come up academically short

by missbella1245, January 01, 2014

He received an Outstanding on his Defense Against the Dark Arts OWL and Exceeds Expectations in; Potions, Transfiguration, Charms, Herbology, and Care of Magical Creatures. Those are top grades he was only one of twelve students able to make it to advanced Potions and Minerva McGonagall herself complimented Harry on his Transfiguration OWL. "I was pleased with your Transfiguration mark, Potter, very pleased." I understand that your trying to get across that Harry isn't perfect we get that but, your also not doing him justice which isn't fair.
