"Extras" are official school clubs and classes beyond the normal student's load. (Unofficial clubs are generally more casual than official ones, and are not considered extras. Quidditch is not considered an extra, either.)

The normal load is:

  • First-Fifth Year: Core classes and 2 electives
  • Sixth-Seventh Year: Up to 3 N.E.W.T.-level classes
  • 0 official clubs

Anything beyond these numbers is an extra. Extras can be taxing, and the school may place limits based on academic achievement. A student may take a number of extras equal to their Mind rank, with the following restrictions:

  1. Only one additional elective may be taken (for a total of 3), and this counts as two extras.
  2. Taking a fifth N.E.W.T. class requires special approval.
