    Class Schedules

    I was looking on the lexicon for what classes various houses had together. This is what I know:

    • The Slytherins and Gryffindors have DADA, Care of Magical Creatures, and Potions together.
    • The Gryffindors have Herbology with the Hufflepuffs.

    What classes do you think Hufflepuff and Slytherin have together? Do you think the class pairings change by year? For instance, one year, would the Hufflepuffs have a class with Ravenclaw, but then the next year have it for Slytherin. In addition, for the NEWT classes, do you just have it with everyone, from every house, who has that NEWT?

    As far as electives go, I always though all four houses took them together. Just for the simple reason that there probaly wouldn't be enough students to fill a whole class if it was made up of only one, or even two Houses.

    Actually the Gryffindors don't have DADA with anyone. Remus appears to only be teaching them, and I imaginbe it's to do with the size of the classrooms and equipment needed.
    DADA and Transfiguration probably require a lot of room, so where you have a whole House group - you'd only teach them. And Divination looks to be all Gryff - although that's elective.

    At NEWT level, there are fewer students. There are four Ravenclaws, four Slytherins, three Gryffindors and one Hufflepuff in Slughorn's class for instance.

    I don't think the class pairings change year by year, certainly Harry seems to always have Herbology with the Puffs, but I guess Fred and George could have Potions with Puffs or something.

    Yes, I believe that's the way it works. Because people from all the Houses are choosing the classes they want to take, it wouldn't make sense for the Professors to teach by House alone (what if only one Ravenclaw wants to take a specific NEWT, for example?)

    There is a scene in HBP in which Luna says:

    Of course this could mean that it was before the class on the corridor, but it sounds more like they actually have Transfiguration together. What I thought was there must be larger and smaller years, like... there's five boys and three girls in Gryffindor in Harry's year, but maybe there's only two boys and two girls in Ginny's. And if there are few Gryffindors and Ravenclaws, then maybe it would make sense for them to have them have some of the classes (or at least the theory sessions of classes) together.

    Are the arrangements necessarily the same from year to year? I'd imagine the schedules would switch up based on room availability, class size, other classes the students are taking, other requirements the professors have and who knows what else. Certainly, the arrangements for NEWT-level and even OWL-level would have to change based on who's signed up for what.
