question Seriously, just because Harry beat him...
It doesn't mean he can skip school...
Harry couldn't just graduate. Could he?

He was of age. There was no reason for him to continue school if he didn't want to.

I guess that's true. thx for your input smile . But there is also the matter that during the 7th book Ron and Hermione were already 18.

Well, you are saying that he is already of age, but if they didn't skip school then they would be 18 while getting an education.

Hermione was the only one of the trio who went back to repeat 7th year so she could get her N.E.W.T.s and properly graduate.

Quote:
J. K. Rowling said in an interview that there is some form of graduation ceremony for Seventh Years that includes riding the Hogwarts boats back across the lake as they leave, but that she chose not to include it in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as "to have a graduation scene on top of what just happened would've been an absurd bit of anti-climax."

J. K. Rowling also stated in the same interview that although Harry, Ron, and Hermione skipped their seventh year to hunt for Voldemort's Horcruxes, Hermione went back to Hogwarts to get her N.E.W.T.s and properly graduate. Harry and Ron, however, did not return, and instead worked with Kingsley Shacklebolt to round up stray Death Eaters.

In the Wizarding world, you didn't have to finish the seven years of schooling. You can do six or even five and survive in their world quite nicely. It is kind of like regular school, you can drop out, it isn't the best idea but you can. And I think the three were already qualified enough so they really didn't have to go back.

And I bet it was going to be tough going back to a school that was destroyed, and had many students die in the halls. I probably would have not come back if I was old enough to be able to choose.

Did it matter? No one cared after he defeated the dark lord, and besides, he was of age.

Exactly. It's just like dropping out of high school. Although now adays, that's a terrible idea.

Canonically,

Minister Shacklebolt made it law that a person could become an Auror regardless of graduate or NEWT status if they participated in the Battle of Hogwarts (or was it the entire war?) on the side of the Order.
