Knocking down crests
Find the crest you want to knock down. Cast Wingardium Leviosa on the object you want to use to knock it down. Note: This object can be anywhere and does not have to be in throwing range of the crest. Using either a Dung-bomb or an Exploding Cauldron is recommended. Once the object is in the air, hold [Run]. You can now walk around the castle and grounds while still carrying the object in the air. Make sure that you keep [Run] held until you get to where the crest is located. Note: During this time Harry will not run fast. Throw that object at the crest to knock it down.

Winning fights and duels
- An easy way to win almost any fight or duel is to cast Levi Corpus or Petrificus Totalus. Then just charge your Stupefy until it chimes twice, then release it. It will result in a one hit victory until later in the game, then it will require two. Note: This does not work on Fenrir Greyback.
- Use the following combo to defeat any enemy. Use Expelliarmus to knock them down. Charge up your Stupefy. While getting it charged, walk directly next to your dueling opponent. Fire your charged Stupefy for a one hit kill. This trick can give you 5 stars for the challenge very quickly and easily.
Playing match is very easy. You must fly through all the stars in the sky to catch the snitch. Passing all stars is not required if the star's color is going from red to light. This indicates your time is going over, so try to pass through most of the stars in the sky.
