How do you study in Hogwarts Legacy?

The range of classes you can attend in Hogwarts Legacy significantly depends on your experience. During the first two years in Hogwarts, you can only learn compulsory subjects that strictly stick to the curriculum.

Once you are in your third year of studying at Hogwarts, you will be able to choose from unique electives. Electives are way more interesting than necessary subjects.

Finally, in the fifth year of studying at Hogwarts, all students must pass the Ordinary Wizard Level Exams. Even though there are no details on how these exams will be implemented in-game, it seems that it will be added to the game as a specific mission you will be supposed to complete. Also, the difficulty of this mission will significantly depend on the game difficulty you choose while creating your character in Hogwarts Legacy.

If you pass the exams successfully, you will be allowed to continue studying at Hogwarts on the Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test, which will take two more years.

Of course, we'll have to wait and see whether classes appear in this form until Hogwarts Legacy releases.
