Please refer to Sorting Quiz for more details on the quiz in this moment.

The first screen of the quiz is a description of the quiz.

Welcome to Hogwarts

The four houses are called Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.

Each house has its own noble history and each has produced outstanding witches and wizards. While you are at Hogwarts, your triumphs will earn you house points, while any rule-breaking will lose house points. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the House Cup, a great honour. I hope each of you will be a credit to whichever house becomes yours.

Professor McGonagall

Please answer the questions that follow as honestly as you can to make sure you are sorted into the right house for you.
