Here are some of our mostly frequently asked questions and the answers to them. This thread has been created so that Staff and basically anyone with the answers like questions like these don’t have to reply all the time with the same answers.
Q1: How do I get sorted into a House/How do I become a First Year?
A1: In order to become a First Year Student and attain a House, you must fill out the Quiz at the Sorting Quiz game when it is opened. The opening of the Sorting Quiz game is always announced on the group shout. In addition, sending applications to the Professor Application game will not grant you a position as a student as that is the incorrect game.
Q2: When is the Sorting?
A2: The sorting follows a schedule which you can find here. Note that only Accepted+ will be allowed to attend the events.
Q3: What do I do if I am not satisfied with the House I was sorted in?
A3: If you are not satisfied with the House our Administrative Staff sorted you in, please private message HPUniverse. If you are allowed to change Houses then, you will have to purchase the House Change T-Shirt.
NOTE: Your House won’t be changed if you bought it without contacting HPUniverse!
Q4: When are the lessons and how do I know what subject I have?
A4: Lessons are always hosted on Saturdays. Please check the schedule for more information on the subjects.
Q5: How do I become a Professor?
A5: In order to become a Professor, you will have to fill an application form in our Application Centre. Your application will then be reviewed by the Application committee. Please note that if the subject you are applying for is full, you will be asked to teach another subject.
