You are the admissions counselor at a school for magic. You are tasked with the job of sorting incoming students into one of various study-tracks provided at this prestigious institution. The way the study-track system works, is that each track is denoted by - well, I don't need to explain that part to you, do I? You work there after all! Provided is a list of student applicants that still need to be sorted, and I trust you will have no problem assigning them to their appropriate tracks, although I get the feeling that one of these students is perhaps not exactly a match for the school.

Applicants To Be Sorted:

Grimm Bishop

Georgia Cross

Chiron Dijkstra

Ed Fish

Catherine Jones-Kittis

Piasco "Crazy" Seacrouch

Hemiesous Waster

Can you find out how the study-track system works and place each student in their correct track?


The school did not begin as a school for magic. The track system was created at the founding of the school when its focus was on one specific subject. This subject is no longer the school's main focus, but it remains as a part of the first year curriculum shown below:

- Astronomy
- Cartography
- Marine Biology
- Medieval Literature
- Metallurgy

  • $\begingroup$ @Dylan why do you need to employ a sorter? We have a sorting hat, after all! $\endgroup$ – user67612 Jun 27 at 18:43
