An Apprentice Witch/Witch Apprentice (Witchling in the English dub) is a human girl or young witch child who is currently in studies.
Strengths and Weaknesses
In comparison to full-blooded or grown witches, apprentice have very weak magical capabilities when starting out, and need the use of a Pollon to cast magic until she gains the right to gain her own Crystal Ball. By this point she is also strong enough to return her mentor back to normal, if she became an apprentice through those means.
Unlike Witch, who can cast magic whenever she pleases, an Apprentice can only cast magic if she has changed into her uniform and has Magic Spheres.
In total there are nine exams, but they can only be taken at evening until she reaches her last; in which it takes place during the day and must be completed before sunset.
Any apprentice or witch strong enough can be offered to skip an exam and receive the upgrade, and upon completing Level 6, the apprentice will gain her Apprentice Certificate (Certiwand in the dub). This is used to collect Sphere's of Achievement (Certisphere in the dub) and the apprentice will start to collect them for each good deed she does or whenever she passes an exam. The apprentice must gain eight before she can gain full access to her Witch title. After this, she will gain her Crystal Ball (Orball in dub) if the Queen believes she is ready.
