Why I Think I Should Have An Apparating Licence

Apparition is an extremely useful skill to have, simply because it is faster, cleaner and generally easier mode of transport for witches and wizards to use. Young witches and wizards who are under the age boundary, as I was until recently, look forward eagerly to being allowed to apparate. This is because Apparition is not merely a mode of transport. It is also a way of proving to parents, guardians, and other figures of authority, that we are independent, mature and focused enough to be able to accomplish anything in life. It also shows that we are responsible, (to control where we apparate from and to) and furthermore confirms our magical talents. Apparition gives a sense of freedom and independence, and moreover, since youths are eligible to apply for a licence when they are 17, it also commemorates the coming of age, even embracing the full potential of the magical world.

The practical advantages of Apparition are infinite. I feel that acquiring my licence would prove useful because Apparition is a faster and easier method of travel than either using the Floo Network, or flying. It provides minimal discomfort, is cleaner than using sooty fireplaces; is a lot more cheaper than buying a broom, buying constant replacements for Floo Powder, in fact it is absolutely free (!); does not involve the hassle of connecting to the fireplace, making sure the other end is also connected; it is less time consuming than flying to the desired destination; and there is no need to use any other equipment other than a wand (it can even be done wandlessly) – this is useful in dangerous situation such as during Auror work. It is also easier than using a Portkey. To use a Portkey, it must be authorised by the Ministry and to authorise each and every Portkey for every time you want to travel somewhere, it would be frustrating, boring and quite simply, annoying. I sure it is clear why Apparition is also much better than using the Knight Bus. It is, again, faster, and it involves an infinitely more comfortable ride, this being said with no offence meant to Ernie’s driving.

I also think that Apparition is useful in the workplace. For example, I aspire to be a Healer. Some Healers are required to work outside of St. Mungo’s, such as to make house calls, or be a Healer on a battlefield, tending to the wounded who need immediate attention. It is better, therefore to be able to apparate directly to the wounded because it is the quickest way of administering the required medication as fast as possible. If an Auror was losing a lot of blood extremely fast, then would be better to grab the Blood Replenishing Potion and apparating directly to their side, instead of waiting for a Portkey, or riding a broom, and there are no fireplaces on a battlefield! I feel that Apparating will help me to be a better Healer and to give the optimum help to my patients. Another example is if a woman is giving premature birth at home and needs a Healer to oversee the birth as well as a midwife, then it is easy for me to be able to get to the woman’s home immediately to help, especially since prematurely born babies are more susceptible to disease and are more fragile than babies born after full term. The most obvious advantage of Apparition is being able to get to work easily and on time. If I had overslept for any reason, then I would simply have to get dressed and apparate away, instead of worrying about traffic on the roads, whether Muggles will see me flying, if my clothes will get crumpled or sooty on the Knight Bus or in the fireplace.

The disadvantages of Apparition are few and far between, and also not at all serious. It gives slight discomfort, the feeling of being pulled through a tube, and it must not be done long distance. It must also not be done in the presence of Muggles, and if the person is really pedantic, it must not be done while in a Library if Silent Apparition has not been mastered.

Finally, I think that I should be given a licence to apparate because it will show that I am a mature, responsible adult. It will also make life easier when I have completed my schooling, and it will help me to become a better Healer in the future.

My reasons for wanting to have the lisence to apparate:

Why do I want to be able to apparate? Because apparition gives us the ability to be wherever we want whenever we want. That's a great thing and it's only the begining. I would never be late for anything (dates, meetings, importants reunions, etc) and I could go at my friends house with a simple thought.

Of course I wouldn't apparate IN their houses, that would be just rude. I would apparate in front of it and then ring the bell. That would be much more polite. And I consider myself a very polite person.

Well, as my career idea, I was hoping to become a writer in the future. Just like our dear JK Rowling. I always wanted to be a writer, ever since I read my first book with was "A Secret", a children's book to help you with the words. I wasn't really thinking of writing that type of book, I was considering writing about fantastic worlds, such as JKR, for the Muggles to apreciate. Because, see, even if they don't believe in them, most of them like to read about it. So, being able to apparate would help me. I could go ask for someone's opinion on my books just like that.

I could go to the places that I will write about. Though I know apparition is not wise in long distances but a little far wouldn't make a problem. Or something close. For example, if I was writing about an island, I could apparate in a beach and base my writing on what I was seeing from there. Of course I wouldn't apparate on a REAL island. That would be too far, i think.

And Apparition is (i guess) a more comfortable, more faster, more easier and much more pratical way to travel. You see, broomsticks are pratical and easy, but they (i guess again) must not be very comfortable. Using the Floo Network it would be easier, yes, but much less cleaner and what happens if the place you want to go doesn't have a fireplace? Apparition is the method you would use.

Or at least the method I would use.

Apparition is also much more safe because (apart from the risk of splinching and that wasn't specified if it hurted a lot or not) there's not much more threats. The broomsticks are much more expensive and while travelling on them, there's always the risk of falling down (and that would be painful), and the floo powder could make you be trapped in the chimney, just like the Weasleys did, in the begining of book 4, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

The disadvantages of Apparition (and there ARE disadvantages, although few) are that you have a feeling of discomfort while you're travelling and it isn't wise to do it for long distances (as I said before). Also, it must be completely out of a muggle sight. What do you think a muggle would think if they saw someone disappear or appear out of nothing?

Being able to apparate would make me feel very... good. I would feel happy and just like someone in the Harry Potter books said (I don't know if it was Seamus or Dean), I probably wouldn't do it inside hogwarts (and I couldn't since it's protected by magic), but just to know that I COULD do it if I wanted to would give me a feeling of... superiority.

I could pick at my little cousins who have still a lot of time to be able to apparate and that would make my holidays a lot better. I'm just kidding, I wouldn't do that, I would use the apparition lisence wisely and only if I needed it. Because we have to be afraid of the risks and, if we splinch, we need to know what to do to be all full again and in safety.

Apparition would help me a lot and I would use it not only in my job but in other things as well. To finish my essay, I believe that if I pass this 5 tests, the ability to apparate will be very useful to me.

Apparition is the act of reappearing and disappearing at will to another destination. Wizards have used it for centuries as a means of transportation. Yet because of the difficultness in this spell, wizards are only allowed to attempt this after they are the legal age (17). They also have to be in the presence of a legal Ministry officer and take the test. Only then when they are issued a liscense will they be able to apparate at will. Yet there are many advantages and disadvantages that make many wizards decide whether or not they prefer to actually learn how to apparate or just to use broomsticks or the floo network.

Many young wizards are excited about learning how to apparate and getting their liscense because they only think of the usual advantages of this skill. Apparation makes transportation faster, easier, and cleaner than the other forms of transportation. While flying on a broomstick is alot more quicker then driving as muggles do because there is no traffic in the sky (although you might have to dodge the occasional bird every once in a while). Yet you still have to move in and out of the clouds to avoid muggles spotting you and that makes flying take even longer. Especially when apparating only takes a few seconds of your time to concentrate on your destination. Although the other form of transportation is much faster (floo powder), it is much dirtier to do. You would have to travel through many fireplace and get your clothes covered in soot and dust, which is bad because sometimes you might be traveling somewhere that you need to look your best. This is where apparating would also be a much better solution because you do not get dirty in the process. The last reason that many wizards are willing to apparate are the fact that the process is so much easier then using the floo network or broomstick. While apparating can happen anywhere (as long as you're in an area that you are allowed to apparate to and from), the floo network is limited to your fireplace and going to places with a fireplace. Not to mention you have to use floo powder every time and that involves many galleons over the years. Broomsticks are also quite expensive as well as dangerous in the fact that muggles can spot you at any time. Making the Minstry work harder to convince the muggles that they saw a "UFO" rather then a flying broomstick.

Yet as wonderful as these advantages are many people still prefer to stick to the other methods of transportation. A few of the reasons are that apparition is very hard to do over a far distance. It requires more concentration and it has a less likely chance of being on target. Another reason is that the process is very hard to learn and master as well as being very dangerous. Many people have become splinched as a result of trying to learn how to apparate. This is the act of leaving half of your body at one destination while the other half is still at the origin. This can be very painful depending on what got separated. This will also have to have the Ministry Accidental Reversal Magic Squad to come sort you out as well as fix the problem of muggles spotting your body parts. The last reason that many decide not to apparate is the feeling that apparating gives to the caster. Youi will get a feeling as though you are being squeezed through a rubber tube down to your destination. Even famous wizards such as Harry Potter "The Boy Who Lived" has commented that it is something he does not look forward to.

However, I believe that the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Perhaps because I'm still young and haven't exactly had the experience to reason through this. However, I also believe that I would benefit from being able to apparate whenever I can. I am looking for a future job in the Ministry of Magic. Perhaps work at the offic for Magic Creatures because they fascinate me. I would have sent in my resume to be the Care of Magica Creatures position yet it was already filled. I believe that being able to apparate will help me greatly because I would have to deal with animals in this office. And they, unlike humans, will not want to wait until I arrive to sort the matter out. Then as I get farther along in my future to my real goal and destination, the future minister of Magic. :cheers: (lol) I will need to be able travel places quickly as well as apparate to the outside of Hogwarts to ask Elfie Dumbledore for advice on what to do.

As a Muggle born, the idea of apparition has always held particular appeal. Growing up watching re-runs of Star Trek, where they had the ability to teleport themselves wherever they wished, made me long to be able to do it to. To be able to travel anywhere, instantaneously is something that I’d very much like to be able to do.

Apparition not only enables you to move instantly between destinations, but it gives you the independence to travel wherever you wish, whenever you wish. Of course, the other forms of wizarding travel each have their own merits, but for me, it has always been apparition that has intrigued me the most. With apparition, you would have independence from needing to carry floo powder with you. You would not have to rely upon poorly-disguised Portkey’s, or manic driving on the Knight Bus. Admittedly, riding a broom is fun, but a journey can take hours, even days by broomstick.

This is the main reason I would like to pass my apparition test. To have the ability to move immediately between places, without worrying about getting out at the wrong fireplace, without that uncomfortable feeling of a portkey, without having your insides roiled on the Knight Bus, would be magical indeed.

In the future, apparition would aid me greatly with my intended magical career. As a keen student of French (I have been studying it as an extracurricular activity in addition to my Hogwarts classes), I think I would like to work in France when I have completed my education. Therefore, apparition would be immensely useful for travelling back and forth. I could possibly be able to live in France during the week, and apparate home at the weekends. I would have no need to say goodbye to my friends, because I would be able to ‘pop’ home and see them anytime. I also envisage myself taking a year out for travelling before beginning a career. Apparition would be incredibly useful at this time, I would be under no pressure to stick to strict schedules and timetables, I would be able to travel at my own pace.

Although I believe that apparition has many, many advantages, there are, of course, several disadvantages that I know I need to be aware of. There is always the danger of splinching, however I believe that I would be safe from this once I have studied and passed my apparition test, following this wonderful course structure. Then there are those places that cannot be accessed via apparition, for example, Hogwarts, the British Ministry of Magic, and St Mungo’s Hospital. But these are not particularly large disadvantages, as it is always easy to apparate outside one of these places. Finally there is the danger of breaking the Wizarding Statute of Secrecy, but apparating in front of Muggles. I would endeavour never to do this, finding somewhere out of the way to apparate from and to.

For me, having the ability to apparate would open up a world of new opportunities. I would be able to travel freely across Britain, Europe and even the whole world. I would be free from the other forms of wizarding travel that are far inferior to apparition, and above all, I would fulfil my childhood wish of being able to ‘teleport’!

Apparition Essay
Apparition is not just an extremely helpful tool, it is a privilege. Not everyone can simply just walk into the Ministry of Magic and get a license. You must meet requirements, and also be mature enough to know how to use Apparition safely. All lot of people might need an apparition license, but that does not mean that they can get one.

Apparition can be a wonderful tool. Apparition can save precious time, energy, and even lives. Using apparition, witches and wizards can travel almost anywhere, in seconds. You can start in Russia, and end up in Ohio, in seconds. You can travel halfway across the world, in seconds. Apparition can be a life saver, if you need to get somewhere, but are too tired to travel another way. Apparition can be used when you are in danger, and need to escape. Apparition also can help when the weather is not cooperating. If you need to get somewhere, and plan to go by broom, but it is raining, apparition is the perfect solution. Apparition is the perfect replacement for the Knight Bus, brooms, trains, and other means of transportation, if you need to get somewhere immediately.

Although apparition can be a life saver, apparition can also be a nightmare. While apparition is helpful to regular witches and wizards, it is also helpful to criminals. While we can easily apparite anywhere in seconds, so can criminals. They can escape from Azkaban and the ministry by appariting. Apparition can also be very dangerous, if not used correctly. Splinching is often the result of careless apparition. Apparition is also not always an option. Anti-apparition spells are used to keep witches and wizards from apparition in certain areas. In this situation, other means of transportation are needed. So as you can see, apparition has both positive and negative effects on the wizarding community.

Dangerous or not, many people rely on apparition in their careers. Personally, I feel that I need my apparition certificate because of the career I am looking into: Head of the Department of Magical Games and Sports. Apparition in this career is critical, because organizing is a huge part of this job. Apparition in this career is needed for booking hotels rooms in the various wizarding countries, setting up practice times for the teams on the international fields, as well as many other jobs. Instead of having to run back and forth, organizing everything, apparition can be used. It saves not only time, but energy. Organizing the rules with other countries for international magical games is hard. Apparition makes transportation a lot easier with this.


I would need my apparition certificate also, not only for work, but for every day life. Going to Diagon Ally, going to Hogsmeade, traveling to alumni visits back to Hogwarts after I graduate (which hopefully, I will do, lol), and many other things can be accomplished more easily by using apparition. From something as simple as using apparition to carry a heavy broom polishing kit upstairs, to apparating to save a family from a burning building and get out of the country before the Death Eaters show up, apparition can help.

Since being able to apparate is a privilege, having my license would be very special to me. To know that I had past the tests, and proven myself, would be something I could always remember. It would be like a special honor to earn my apparition license.

An apparition certificate allows an individual the freedom to escape the hustle and bustle that every day life brings, whether it be a simple journey to work or taking the family out for a picnic. It provides a quick, clean and easy way to travel without all the fuss. There will be no ‘Are we there yet’ from the children in the back of the smoky car, instead, in one blink of an eye, you are there and free to enjoy your day. It will almost certainly aid me with lateness with regards to early morning appointments or work as I have a tendency to oversleep, and being without a muggle driving license, it leaves me only able to walk or travel by public transport whilst in the company of muggles, and where I live, there are loads of hills. Apparating is so much quicker and easier on the feet!
Also, it provides a safer form of travelling. Instead of braving the cold dark nights when you wish to go out, you are able to stay warm and safe and get to your destination in less than a second, (hopefully without splinching)
As far as I can see, there are very few downsides to apparating. Yes, it may be more uncomfortable to apparate, what with the squeezing and tingling sensation, but at least this will only last seconds, and you will soon become accustomed to the feeling.

Also, if you compare most forms of transport, both wizarding and muggle, you can see the plus side to being able to apparate. Yes, riding a broom is great, the wind through your hair and the clouds above your head, but what about the risk of being seen by muggles? Also it takes so much longer and then you have to carry your broom around with you wherever you go. Also, with apparating, you are able to take your family along with you using side by side apparition. You would look a bit silly taking three or four people on the back of a broom with you, especially if one of them is your great uncle Bert who weighs as much as a hippo and looks like one too…

I would look carefully into the career of a healer after leaving Hogwarts, which would mean constantly being on call in case of a medical emergency. Using apparition, I will be able to be by the person’s side in no time and prevent possible death, the other career option is perhaps an Auror, and apparating would have the same kind of benefits there. If there is trouble, I’d be there on the double! (I sound like a super hero now!!)

How would it make me feel? Well that is the question! It would give me a great sense of freedom and provide happiness though out my whole body. I feel that I should be given this chance to hold that certificate in my hand as I am responsible and very over worked. Also, it would mean that I got to the church on time…!!!

As I sit by my quill and parchment writing this essay, I notice the loud ticking in the background coming from Ravenclaw common room grandfather clock, (kindly dubbed vinny by me). I peer up at its wide face and notice I only have five minutes until I have to leave to make my way to Hogsmeade to visit my friends. Hogsmeade is a good half an hour walk, which therefore leaves me half an hour less on this test, and this brings me to my first point – my opening argument – upon why I believe apparition qualifications would suit me and why I believe I deserve to gain my apparition certificate.

Time!!

That old saying about wishing we had more time – more time do do this, and more time to do that. We magical beings have begun on the path to aid with this, haven’t we? – Apparition!
To use apparition as my transportation, I would have more time to sleep in the mornings before I eventually start work after Hogwarts, I would be able to stay later at work and beat the rush hour traffic if I choose to use muggle forms of transport, I would be able to get to my friends and family almost immediately if they were in trouble, and I would have more time to finish this essay for my second part of my apparition test!

Now, let us look into the future, into the realms of work after Hogswarts. There are many careers I would look into taking, muggle relations, the office for magical maladies, healers, aurors…the list is endless, yet one thing is for certain – having my apparition certificate and enabling me to apparate will benefit me in all these careers. Let us take a look at the last two upon that short beginning of a list; Healer and Auror. These two are linked together by means of aiding those who need it, those who are in trouble in one way or another. Muggle paramedics always arrive after some time to an injured person due to the way they travel. They have to take traffic into account, bad drivers who may get in their way, difficulties in getting to the person in need, parking spaces – again the list is endless, but with apparition, the list hardly begins. I would be able to get to the person in need in under no time at all. In the time it would take a non-apparator or a muggle paramedic to arrive at the scene, I would have arrived, surveyed the situation, dealt with the situation, treated the injured and taken them to where they needed go go, whether it be home, hospital or Azkaban!

As this essay can show, there are many arguments in favor of this mode of transport, though I also believe that there are some against. Apparition is not exactly the most comfortable way of magical travel, and nothing beats the feeling of wind through your hair when you travel by broomstick, yet it is quick, easy, (once you have learnt how to do it without splinching), and you have limited worry about muggles seeing you, as long as you concentrate upon the task properly.

So, in conclusion to this second part of the apparition tests, I believe that I need the certificate, and believe that I should aquire it, due to all the reasons stated above.

Apparition Test Theory 2 Essay

Holding an apparition certificate would enable me to quickly apparate to classes and quidditch as well as everything else that I am constantly late for. I feel that I need this certificate for, not only tedious things, but also important things such as my future career. I am not entirely sure what I want to do after Hogwarts, though in all my choices, apparition would come in extremely handy. For example:

Auror:

If I ended up choosing this career I would be dealing with a lot of wizards who already are capable of apparating, therefore outrunning me when I am needing to track them down. With my apparition certificate, I would have a decent chance of catching up with escaped prisoners or those deatheaters on the loose. It may also get me out of some sticky situations in which I tend to find myself in quite often.

Healer:

Another career I am considering which would benefit an apparition certificate immensely. Brooms and other muggle transport are fine and dandy but if a wizard or witch is in need of desperate healing then I would want to get there as quick as possible and apparition is the easiest and most effective way. Also, by learning side on apparition, I would be able to bring the casualties back to the hospital, hopefully preventing any deaths and tragedies.

Curse- Breaker:

Another career in which apparating will be useful. If a curse is becoming to difficult to break, you might only have seconds to get out of where you reside before the curse spreads to you. Running and flying is not fast enough, though apparating is and you will be out of harms way before you know it!

Professor:

You may not think that this career would have a useful reason for wanting to apparate but you would be wrong. Professors can not have eyes everywhere and sometimes you find out that there is trouble between students too late. If you could apparate to the problem immediately, you might just prevent visits to the hospital wing or worse!

I completely understand that apparition is not as easy as it looks, and there are many pros and cons involved in apparition, such as:

Pros:

* It is a faster mode of magical transport
* It can be a safer way to travel
* It is the quickest way to travel
* You are less likely to be seen by muggles

Cons:

* It can be very uncomfortable
* You may accidentally apparate into nasty places and/or in front of muggles
* You may loose body parts if not concentrating well – this is known as splinching

Overall, though, to be able to apparate and hold a certificate saying that I am fully qualified would mean a lot to me. Everything else aside, it would give me confidence that I currently lack as well as being a more useful member of the wizard society. Magic is in my blood, so why not be able to train and use everything possible to live up to my roots!

I believe that there are many advantages to having my apparation certificate. One of the most important reasons to have it is to help others. Whether you are a Healer, or a Professor, a Ministry official, a doctor or lawyer or even the guy who cleans the toilets at Azkaban; you need to be able to get to places quickly and efficiently.

There are emergencies that come up that can't be helped and you need to have an apparation certificate to get where you need to be at that moment. Apparating is tricky and does hold a few disadvantages such as splinching. It would be very uncomfortable to leave an arm here a leg there so getting your apparation certificate shows you are responsible enough to perform such a strong use of magic.

Apparating to work, to the store, here and there would be good but you have to be careful where you apparate to. Similar to using the floo network if you don't think of where you want to go very clearly, you could end up in a very bad place.

You've got to be prepared for the good and bad that comes with apparating and you also can't just be frivilous with it. You need to have your senses keen, your mind clear and you can't rely on anyone but your own thinking.

Also beware of places you can't get into by apparating. You can't go poofing in and out of places such as Hogwarts.And trying to do so could make you end up in a very bad predicament.

For me to get my apparation certificate would be a thrill and open a new means of travel and transportation for me. I could use it in my future for checking up on my kids if they are out, for grocery shopping, for doctor and hospital visits, and all sorts of small things. I could apparate both short and long distances and that would be really great.

Not only would it benefit me but also my friends and co workers. I could deliver things to them, run errands, pick up food, pay bills and not have to worry about being late to places.

If a friend is sick I could pop in to check on how they are doing. If one of the kids needs me to be at their school play, I'd pop in.

And apparation can be very useful for law enforcement. Catching burglars, robbers, thieves and heading them off at the pass. Popping up right in front of them and especially if they are muggles, I could give them a good scare. After all if they are criminals they don't deserve explainations.

And apparation could be useful when it comes to meetings with others. No more shuffling around and worrying about being late or caught in a traffic jam. It would be wake up, shower, get dressed, grab important documents and poof! I'd be there on time, well groomed and ready to start the day.

Of course there is the potential of accidentally appearing in front of a muggle but that can all be dismissed as them hallucinating.Still, with an apparation certificate comes a great responsibility.

Why do I need an apparition test?
Actually I would prefer the apparition certificate firstly because I want to see my name on a certificate in the apparition certificate hall and then secondly because it could help me both as a muggle and a witch.


It would aid me in careers if I choose to go into something magical. I don’t drive a car or bike so apparating would help me in getting to work on time as I am quite often late for everything and with a new baby coming in July, time won’t be on my side. Also, it would come in handy if I am feeling particularly tired or lazy. If the baby is upstairs and waking up and I am downstairs I can simply apparate up to it and then side long apparate back down, though the second I probably wont do as it could be dangerous with a baby.

Apparition will be helpful in nearly every career I choose, whether it be muggle or magical. For example;

Take a magical job and a muggle job, say an auror and a police woman. In both of these jobs I could apparate to the scenes of the crime in much quicker time than I could driving or walking, and I could end up saving the day by being first on the scene. Obviously if we are looking at the muggle job, I have to take extra care as I can not simply apparate in front of muggles as their poor little hearts and minds would not take it!

It would also benefit the stresses of every day living, such as not sitting in long traffic jams. Also look at this following point (which is very far fetched but a good point I think!); A muggle couldn't be marooned on a desert island with a 14" piece of wood and make their life wonderful. A wizard on the other hand would not only get any thing he or she needed, but get off whatever island they were marooned on. (I have no idea why I'm talking about desert islands, but oh well!)

I would also like to point this out, though. Apparating in the muggle world is a dangerous thing. I would have to take extra care as I am very clumsy and I wouldn’t want a muggle to see me and run tests on me like an alien from out of space, and imagine what apparating in the army could do! Terrible consequences! (Im going slightly off topic again I know lol)

To wrap this short essay up, though, I would like to point out some quick advantages (say pro’s) and some disadvantages (say cons) to apparating (yet please don’t think I don’t want the apparition certificate because of this, I think that knowing pro’s and con’s of apparating will help me in passing and being a careful apparator!)

Pro’s

• Faster way to travel
• Helpful in both every day circumstances as well as work place circumstances
• Safer travel at such times as night time

Con’s

• Uncomfortable
• Dangerous if performed wrong

To summarize, I think that I am more than eligible for an apparition test and think that I should pass it as it would not only help me but also help others around me!

Responsibility. Beneficial. Excitment.


Those are the three words that pop into my head when I think of holding my apparition license. I will be considered an adult and many will expect more from me since I can apparate. So, responsibility takes a major role. I could use apparition for important things like catching Deatheaters or criminals if I'm an Auror, going to a buisness meeting as to not be late and even using it as a way to get home to my family or friends in case of an emergency! And you'll never know when you have to have someone hold onto your arm for side-along apparition!

But you cannot say it isn't beneficial to have an apparition license, because it is! It aides me in getting to work on time and will probably save me alot of yelling from my boss, which happens to me quite alot. And come on! Who would not be excited for getting their hands on their appariation license. Just popping to any place will give me a sense of freedom! I could show off to my friends for a bit or if I'm lazy to get up just a pop away and I'm there! hehe


Auror
Well, we all know how important it would be to have an apparition license for this job. When it comes to handling criminals, it's a bit tricky to be chasing after them by foot. Using side-along apparition is in a option and would not only slow me down, but the one who apparated me as well. It'll be much quicker to pop in front of the criminal, whether he was armed or not, because I would already be prepared. He/she would not expect something like that.

Healer
I thought about this one alot and it would be a whole lot easier if I had an appiaration license. If an emergeny patient comes through and I'm called down to work on him/her then all I have to do is pop down to the patient. Let's say the pateint I'm working on needs potions quickly then I could apparate to the lab room (or whatever. lol) and grab a potion that the patient needs!


In the future I can see myself apparating around doing simple things. For example, picking up my kids from Kings Cross Station, though I would have to be extra cautious. Muggles flock around this area and if they saw me, it would cause alot of trouble in te ministry. Maybe going to the store, visitng friends, going to meetings or work. It beats drving a car or flying because you can get to your destination a whole lot quicker!!


PROS
1. A faster way of travelling
2. Less of a mess than Floo Powder or Portkey
3. At times it can be safer

CONS
1. Dangerous and uncomfortable
2. Using it with someone holding onto to your arm: Side-Along
3. Can get you into situations if seen by a muggle

I feel that is essential to have an apparition license. It will help get a job as possibly an auror or wand-maker, and can be very handy. There are high points and low points when learning how to apparate but I am willing to go through the process even if it takes me forever! I also feel it will be a huge confidence builder being able to do a skill that many other people can’t do.

My career options are very important to me. I want to be able to be successful as a auror or wand-maker or even unspeakable. These careers require quick thinking and quick feet, and how do you expect me to catch a unicorn on a broomstick? Or fly all over England trying to catch a death-eater? Exactly. It’s just not functional! I’ll need to be able to poof to the scene of a crime, or pop right into a forest to get a unicorn hair. Maybe even to get out of the way while collecting a dragon heartstring!
I know this can be a hard and difficult process to go through, but I am still willing to try. I have heard that the risk of splinching and getting lost is huge but I have the determination to do it! Once I get through the little hoop it will give me the confidence to try again. And when I see other wizards appearing and disappearing at will, I will totally be motivated to do it myself. After all, what’s a little competition to push you to the end?


More then anything else, I feel that it is a necessity to be able to apparate. In today’s world, muggles are still as arrogant as ever (bless them) but a select few are becoming more and more aware of our world. Broomsticks are increasing the risk of being seen. And lets face it, who wants to sit on a wooden pole for hours at a time. Today’s world is a dangerous place and when DE’s come knocking at the door, it would be hazardous to fly away on a broom. Besides being stupid it’s downright dangerous! I need to be able to get into safety when danger calls, and fast.

I must admit, that after I fell of a hippogriff in my 3rd year, my confidence also took a tumble. People came to call me as the flying, swimming elephant. Even my closest friends were embarrassed by me. And I can’t blame them. But now that was years ago, and I miss my popularity, and to be honest my reputation. But I think I could get it all back and rub it in their sorry little faces if I could just poof away.

As you can definitely see, I fully understand the hardships and responsibilities that come with having an apparition license at my disposal. But I know I can handle it without abuse, and I will work hard so I can avoid splinching and getting lost. I hope this essay convinced you to let me have my license.

Like many witches and wizards before me, I need to pass my Apparition test. You might be wondering why. Why would someone my age need to apparate? Well there is many reasons behind this. One reason is it is a great way to get around. Many places you can't fly over because there might be a lot of muggles around. Now if a muggle sees a broom flying over their heads there are going to start asking questions. No one wants to deal with a muggles when they are upset and saw something that they didn’t understand. But with apparating you can solve this problem. As you may know when you apparte you are broken down into millions of tiny pieces and these pieces go to your location that you were thinking about and came back together to make one whole piece which is you. Because of this the muggles won’t be able to see theses pieces because they are so small and will solve the problem of being caught doing magic. Also you won’t have to ride around in a muggles car, which takes forever, just to get to a place when you’re running late.

Many might think if you don’t want to get caught flying a broom then use flloo powder. If this is the case then you are over looking one thing, not all destinations have a fireplace. Even if there was someone to build the fire you would have to go to the ministry to see if you can use the floo powder to get to that location which could take a few days which you could be having fun instead of dealing with the ministry. Plus the ministry might be very busy and won’t be able to talk to you about that until it is too late. Now if you could apparate then all you have to do with a flick of your cloak your there. All you have to do is make sure you’re not around any muggles.

Apparating can also help you with your job. If you want to become an auror then you would need to apparte to get around to the many locations you would have to go. You’re probably thinking: Well, they can just get their certificate once they become an Auror. But is that a wise thing to do. Would you rather have, an Auror who has been appraeing for many years instead of one that’s just learning how to. If this be the case then there might not be nearly as many Aurors as there are today because they would have to learn apparating and learn all of the other stuff they need to know too. There are also other professions that would run into the same problem. Those who are interested in dragons and need to get to a dragon before it tired to kill many muggles would need to know how to. If he didn’t there might be a lot of dragons loses and many muggles that would have died from it.

I hope that reading this you would understand the reason why we need to learn how to apparate at an early age. Because of this we would have an advantage over things that we would encounter over the years. Weather it be trying to hide from muggles or getting your work done as quickly as possible. Apparating is very important to the wizardry world.

Why I Think I Should Have An Apparating license.


Apparition is an advanced spell used by fully trained witches and wizards to disappear from one place and appear almost instantly somewhere else. This skill is highly advanced and someone can only obtain a licence when they come of age (17) this shows that in order to have the licence you must be mature in order to apparate correctly. I believe that I would be able to apparate correctly and not abuse it.
Apparition is a quicker, faster and easier way of travelling. To be able to apparate is means that I could get to work on time also as am looking into a job in the department for the regulation and control of magical creatures. This would also mean that if a dangerous creature was attacking someone then I could apparate at there side almost immediately to help control the beast. Instead of taking the Floo network or flying. Which would take a great deal longer. Another example would be if I was monitoring the breading of a new species and something went horribly wrong then I would be able to apparate there and have the situation under control in a matter of minutes.
From a very early age I have been jealous of my parents who could apparate every where it would take them such less time. I could also see the annoyance at having to use Floo powder when ever we travelled anywhere because of me not being able to apparate. Of course I could not apparate as I was not of age but I would like to show of slightly that I can now apparate. As it took both my parents till the age of 20 to obtain a apparition licence. My parents now becoming quite old have moved away from the muggles and into the country. Therefore without being able to apparate it will take me very long to get there without using Floo network and getting my outfit dusty. Also if I continually used floo powder then it would cost me much money (14 sickles a pot) all that will add up. And my family not being the richest wizarding family will soon run out and then I will be unable to see my parents as I mentioned before have moved to the country for some piece and quite.
A person can apparate from any place to another (as long as they know where it is, its not in matter or in a muggle filled area) with Floo powder you cannot do that as there are not fire places in the middle of fields.
I believe that I deserve my licence not only because I am coming of age but because I have studied apparition very carefully as that is what us Ravenclaws do. Many people will turn up to the apparition centre with very little knowledge of the thing. Whereas I could tell you many different tales of apparition gone wrong, what to do if you find yourself splinched and many other things.
Although I have gone on about how wonderful and helpful apparition is and will be for my future. There are certain disadvantages such as.
- Uncomfortable
- Dangerous if my mind is not focused (splinch)
- If I do not know the place exactly I could end up somewhere completely different.
- May be difficult if the place you wish to apparate to is full of muggles.
Though there are bad reasons there good reasons out number them my many and it is my wish that I could have an apparition certificate and one day become an apparator.

Why I feel I need an apparation certificate:

I feel I need an apparition certificate because for one taking the floo powder system can be quite messy and damaging to clothes and if you say the location name wrong, which happens a lot when you have a cold, then you get all messed up and possibly turn up in a muggle’s home and flying on broom can be very dangerous and I am deathly afraid of heights, which never did go over well in flying lessons, and also when flying you have to be weary of muggles possibly seeing you. Apparation, even with its side-effects, seems the best solution for a gal like me and will less likely result in exposing magic to muggles, unless of course I am an idiot and apparate to a muggle location, but I am not going to do anything like that. Also my grandmother is getting very old and is coming down with illnesses left and right and say she has a heart attack and can’t manage to make it to St. Mungo’s on her own then she would need to rely on me to get her there and apparation in the quickest way of travel.

As for what using with this for a wizarding career, it would be very handy. Say I chose to be an Auror, I could apparate into homes of unexpecting death eaters and capture them. With almost any job it will make things easier, like going to work, going to the location I am told to go to, and going home. Apparation is a quick to get where you want. I plan to become an artist and a writer in the future and apparation can help me go places to learn the necessary things I want to know how to do and can also help me go places that I can write about or paint. Also if I could figure out what certain tombs look like and exactly where everything is then I can go there without having to worry about all the booby-traps or possible breaking of ground as I walk, also it is the only way to get into tombs without walking down there and it is a lot quicker.

Of course with the pros of apparating there are also some cons like with any good thing. Yes it may be the quickest way of traveling, but it isn’t always the safest. You have to be weary of splinching and if your thoughts accidentally switch to another location before your departure you may go to the wrong place. Also, though you may be able to apparate almost anywhere, except of course places with anti-apparation shields such as Hogwarts, you can’t really just apparate anywhere. One can not apparate where there will be muggles, a lot of people for one might accidentally apparate where someone is standing and that is messy [it happened to my Uncle Baba], or into someone’s residence for it is rude. Also it tends to be a bit uncomfortable and there are some days where one can be uncomfortable enough.

Being able to apparate will most likely make me feel better about myself. It will make me feel more powerful and magical. It will also be nice to be able to go places quicker without getting my clothes and hair in a mess which always irritated me and made me feel bum-ish in public. I would also feel excited that I finally can and I will most likely squeal in excitement. Apparation is a magic that littler witches and wizards tend to think of as an amazing magic and I know that if I could apparate my brother would look up at me like I was some superhero or something and that would make me feel so happy if he thought of me that way. Also since I was a child I have always wanted to learn how, especially since I am tired of going side-along with my parents and older friend Toni.

I think I should get an apparation certificate because I am a responsible witch who would use her ability to apparate carefully and responsibly. Also, I would use my ability to help others in need such as people who need to get rushed to a wizarding hospital immediately, people who can’t apparate, but need to get somewhere else in a hurry, or to get someone out of dire peril.

Ah, Apparition. For most young witches and wizards, it is a milestone, a sign that they have grown up; because apparition may only be attempted legally once a wizard is of age. Apparition is a complicated, nonverbal spell, and instantly transports the apparator from one place to another.

In Hogwarts, a Ministry official comes to the school to teach the students the magic of Apparition. For years I wondered what exactly it entailed. Books were usually vague on the subject, and I expected the instructor to be more specific. But all he would say were the three D's: Destination, Determination, and Deliberation.

Apparition, more so than any brand of magic, requires a leap of faith mixed with extreme surety. You must really want to Apparate before you can do it the first time. Any indeciveness can result in the tragedy formally known as Splinching. I believe that is another reason why the teaching of Apparition is witheld from students until they are of age. It is not just the risk the officials are worried about--they have simply realized that the only way to make us WANT to Apparate badly enough is to restrict us from doing it.

I differ only slightly from the vast majority, and therefore I want to my Apparition certificate as much as anyone else wants it, simply because I have not been allowed to have it for so many years. Reverse psychology works wonders, even when I realize it is being used on me.

Of course, once I've gotten over the initial thrill, I will still want to Apparate. Floo powder has its advantages, but the biggest disadvantage in my opinion is always having to have some of it nearby, or carry it on my person. Apparition is wonderful because I can do it anywhere, in a matter of seconds. I do not need a fire, nor do I need a special powder. All I need is the three D's.

Apparition can become invaluable once I've learned how to do it. I can get away from disturbing situations quickly, dodge unfriendly spells, and sneak up from behind an opponent, all of them vital if I wish to be an Auror. If I wish to research and protect endangered beasts, Apparition will allow me to slip among them quietly and do my work. The many ways in which Apparition can be utilized are countless.

While it is true that Apparition is extremely useful and convenient, the sensation is not at all comfortable. If it would last any longer I doubt I would be able to stand it, as it is, I always end up feeling slightly lightheaded for a few seconds after Apparating. This can be dangerous if I need to be on guard when I get to my destination, but is harmless if I am simply using Apparition as a handy way to travel. Of course, there is always the danger of Splinching if the user is not concentrating well enough.

In my opinion, everyone should learn to Apparate, even if they never plan on doing it much. It is an important and necessary spell to know, not only because it simplifies travel but also because it reminds us all that sometimes all we need to get to the right place is a sense of where we want to go, how badly we want to go, and how careful we should be along the way.

In 500 words at least, discuss why you feel you need your apparition certificate. What do you hope it will help you with in the future, including wizarding world career ideas? What are the pros and con’s for apparating? How will it make you feel being able to apparate? Please include any other questions to complete this essay.

To have an apparition certificate would mean travel, trasportation, and the means to escape. When I become a memeber of the order of the pheniox, there is always the uneasy feeling of being caught or stalked however when these feelings occure then you could apparate and appear somewhere that feels safe to you. Transportation is another good reason because flying might take to long, the nightbus is great but it has to take a lot of stops, however if you were to apparate then you would be the place you wish to be in moments. Not only would you be saving money you could be at a place to help someone which could mean saving a life. And saving a life is an extreamly good thing. Now not only could you save a life but you are saving time.

Time being a valuable aspect in today's hustle and bustling world comes in handy when it's in a large amount or can be a ruiner if you are short on it. With apparatition you can make it to places on time, such as. 'You are going to a party and you have to be there in less than 10 minutes you're stuck in a line at the market buying party gifts. The next five minutes are agony just as you get out of line you duck into the girls loo and crack, you appear on your friend's doorstep with three minutes to spare.'

Now into a more impresive reason, my future and my future job. As I wish to become either a dragon trainer or work at Burgen and Burks it would be a very good things to be able to apparate. ' Imagin a Dragon shoots a ball of fire at you and you have seconds to act, the first thing that pops into your mind is your granny's kitchen and POP you're there free of burn marks and you can smell granny's best chocolatechip cookies. You grab a couple and the pop back to work.' Everyones happy.

Why I Desperately Need My Apparition License or
Why My Procrastination Is Crippling My Life

It is no exaggeration to say that I have long put off my quest to get my apparition license. It was easy to blame my lack of money in my youth, licenses cost money, where as floo powder and hand me down brooms cost next to nothing. In my childhood my family often traveled by broom or portkey, as my brother’s small speech impediment often made floo powder travel treacherous. I was 19 before I even had my very first side by side apparition, and during it I ruined my best pair of shoes and was sick for days afterward.

The older I got, the more my fear of apparition grew. I was beginning to realize the consequences of not learning to apparate. Jobs were limited, and my Auror training came to a halt when I could not produce my apparition license. Returning to Hogwarts, I took a teaching position, thinking I had found a place where I could hide my lack of experience in apparating. Instead I found myself distanced from my fellow professors once word got out that I could not apparate. Suddenly I felt as if I were back in the school yard with the muggle children laughing at me, for they sensed even then that I was different.

So earlier this year I decided that the time had come to put aside past fears, money is no longer an issure, thanks to my more than generous salary. Courage came from friends that assured me that side apparition is much worse than apparating oneself. But I was determined to get past all forms of apparition, and began side along apparating every weekend with whatever friend was kind enough to trek to Hogsmeade. The first two months were wretched, but still I stuck to my guns. Now, when I side along apparate, only the slightest of twinges can be felt.

The time has come for me to get my license, in fact the time is well overdue. As embarrassing as it may be to step in the wooden hoop along with my students, I have found the courage to do so. My first practices have been laughable (well, except for the splinching episode, but I only left behind my small toe, and the pain was bearable).

What are the pros to learning to apparate? Well for me there are many. It means a new chance to train to be an Auror, as new positions are opening. It means finally traveling in the style that so many of my friends, peers and students, take for granted. It means overcoming old fears and finally achieving something that at one time seemed unattainable. There are no cons now. My fear is gone, and I have mastered every other form of travel, including magic carpets on my last trip to India.

I promise to never abuse my apparition license, I will not apparate willy nilly where I may not be welcome. I will obey all the law. As a person of my age and maturity, I will have the necessary respect to appreciate the ability to travel that is being granted to me. Please help me to break the cycle of procrastination that has crippled me!

Apparition Essay


I need my apparition certificate because it is clearly the easiest way to get from point A to point B. True, there’s broomsticks, port keys, and if you must go the Muggle way, cars or trains. But in all of those methods, you have to rely on someone or something else to get you somewhere. With apparition, it’s all up to you. It’s you and your magic. Being able to apparate would give me immense confidence in my magical abilities, something I could be proud of. I don’t need to rely on my parents to take me places, I don’t need to carry a broom around to go to my friend’s house, I can just use my wand. The feeling of freedom itself is enough to make me long to be able to apparate.

In the future, I hope apparating will help me with my punctuality. Well, not necessarily help, but make it more manageable. You see, I am not very good at making sure I get places on time. I always start late, and end up showing up late due to the time that it takes to get places. However, apparition is something that takes mere seconds, leaving me plenty of time to run about the house trying to find my left shoe, and allowing me to get to the place I’d like to go o n time. Or, at least not five to ten minutes late, as is my current specialty arrival time. Getting places on time would also help a great deal with work. I want to be a Wizarding Psychologist, something that could require me to be on call, depending on the seriousness of my patients’ condition. If a curse victim patient is going through a mental break down at St. Mungo’s, I’d need to be there right then, not in five minutes, not in ten minutes. Just using a Floo wouldn’t do, I’d need to get there as quickly as I possibly could.

The pros of apparition are certainly the speed with which it allows you to get places, as well as the fact that it requires very little aside from you, your wand, and a good deal of concentration. Unfortunately, as with all good things, there are cons. Apparition cannot be done very easily over long distances, and as easy as it may seem, it infact requires quite a bit of magic. This is partly why you must be seventeen years old to test for it, almost at the end of your magical schooling. There is also the slight matter of the possibility of Splinching yourself, which could be something as trivial as losing half an eyebrow, or as serious as having a good deal of your arm mangled. And if you do get Splinched, the Ministry would have to get involved, and they probably would not be too pleased with you leaving bits of yourself lying around. This is just a guess, though. Oh, and although not as “uncomfortable” as Splinching, even apparition itself causes discomfort to the Apparater. It has been described as being “squeezed through a very small tube”, and some witches and wizards choose to avoid that feeling, and prefer more comfortable methods of travel.

As I said above, getting the ability to apparate would give me immense confidence in my magical abilities. Apparition is not easy, and it is quite typical for a witch or wizard to have to retest in order to get their certificate. It would also give me a sense of freedom, as I would not have to rely on others in order to get from place to place. It would make me an independent young woman, ready to take over the world! (Okay, maybe not take over the world, but I could do the shopping a lot quicker).

Why Apparition?


Apparition licenses are to wizards and witches as getting driver’s licenses are to muggles – it is just something that youth go through. Like getting a driver’s license, receiving an apparition license requires much hard work, study, and practice by the teenager, which leads to the question of why he or she would even consider apparition. The answer, for most, is simple: freedom. With an apparition license, they are free to go anywhere, within reason, that they chose. This is very appealing to teenagers, who are often desperate to escape their parents’ reach or just go somewhere new. Like these teenagers, I also see it necessary and am looking forward to getting my apparition license.

Being able to apparate will be one of the most liberating sensations I have ever had. It is sure to give me confidence and a higher self esteem, for it is not the easiest thing to do. These things are very important for me to improve on, because I do not wish, and will not allow, myself to be stepped upon as I move up in life. At the moment, I am quite passive in the real world. I back down if someone more assertive orders me about; I let others push me around. Hopefully after this experience of proving my abilities not only to me but to my overseeing superiors as well, a higher level of confidence and self esteem will come to me and help me throughout my life.

In my future career, having the skill to apparate will prove very useful. For one thing, it shows employers that I am not afraid to take on a challenge, and not only take it on, but achieve what I set out to do. It also makes things much more convenient for travel, and even commuting to work. I would much rather take a moment to apparate to work than take a bus, subway, drive, or even fly. Also, I am set on traveling, and with an apparition license, it will be much more affordable. It will cut travel costs enormously, so that I will only have to pay for food, a place to stay, and other necessary items, and some unnecessary ones that I could then afford because of not having to pay for travel.

There are many good points about apparition, but there is also a negative side to things. By apparating, getting places is much faster than over modes of transportation. It is also a good choice for anyone tight on cash, because many other ways of getting places are quite expensive. These reasons coupled with ones mentioned above are many of the beneficial things about apparition. For cons, the first thing that comes to mind is splinching. This horrid, painful, and, frankly, embarrassing situation happens mostly to teenagers who have just gotten their licenses, and to anyone who is in a hurry and is not focused. Also, the actual process of apparating can be uncomfortable to many. After going through so much work to acquire a license, it is more than a shame to realize that you would rather just take the Knight Bus.

With all of this said, I believe that getting an apparition license is the right choice for me. I promise to not abuse my newfound mode of transportation and abide to the laws, it will not go to my head or anything either…you have no reason to worry ^^

Apparition is a very useful skill for all witches and wizards to know. For me, apparition would not only be useful for daily practices, but also for possible career opportunities in the future. As an aspiring Auror, the ability to apparate would be important, if not necessary, in order to pass certain tests to gain qualification. In able to quickly respond to emergency situations, which can be expected in such a dangerous career, the ability to arrive on scene almost instantaneously would be very important. As an Auror, there would be many situations in which reports of a Death Eater or other dangerous Dark Wizards would be reported and Floo Powder may not be an option for travel if the scene lacks a fireplace that is hooked up to the network. Broomsticks would be an ineffective way of traveling quick enough to allow a possible capture and though Portkeys are fast, they are regulated closely by the Department of Magical Transportation and would need to be set up by an officer of that department. In the amount of time any of these other options would take to arrive at the necessary location, the Dark Wizard could be miles away. With a license for apparition, it would be simple to arrive quickly in just seconds making it much easier for a capture to take place quickly, rather than a long drawn-out search after losing the suspect due to slow travel.

Along with the abilities to quickly arrive on a scene, apparition also gives the wizard the choice to leave the scene just as quickly. In a potentially life threatening situation in which an Auror can be of no more use, it’s important for that wizard to have the skills necessary for a fast departure out of harm’s way. As was stated before, brooms, Floo Powder and Portkeys would not be fit for doing so. With apparition, I would be able to disapparate from the scene, potentially dodging a fatal spell, or capture, from a Dark Wizard. The use of apparition in an emergency can also be important to citizens who may be caught in the middle of a duel between Aurors and Dark Wizards. Side-Along Apparitions requires at least one wizard who is experienced in apparition to guide the other, potentially injured or scared, person through the steps. If I was licensed in apparition, it is probable to say I could save other lives in a rapid evacuation of innocent persons who find themselves involved in a dangerous situation.

Even if I was not to pursuer a career in Magical Law Enforcement, apparition would still be a very useful skill to have. Though many wizards prefer using Floo Powder to other forms of transportation, the cost of constantly buying more powder would add up. Being able to apparate in order to perform simple errands such as going to the bank or shopping in Diagon Alley would be much easier without the hassle of always making sure I am stocked up on Floo Powder. Though some wizards use brooms, there are still many rules regarding the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy they must follow. They must be positive no Muggles can see them. This means they either have to wait for a cloudy day or excel in Disillusionment Charms which are difficult in themselves. For these reasons, it seems much more reasonable to learn to apparate than spend money restocking Floo Powder or waiting for perfect conditions to fly.

Though there are some discomforts to apparition, I find the advantages, for both a career and average travel, far outweigh these. Discomforts include feeling as though the wizard is being pushed through a tight tube and have been put under intense pressures as well as initial sickness after the first time a wizard apparates. The loud crack that accompanies both apparition and disapparition is not ideal in a situation in which it could be a give away to a possible enemy but the quickness of arrival is favorable to the potential of completely missing the suspect. Also, wizards become use to the discomforts that accompany apparition after several uses meaning it would no longer be a problem during their travels.

Apparition would be useful to me for both a future career and future lifestyle and I feel as though I am mature and responsible enough to use my license in a wise, appropriate manner.
