    warning... this achievement can be glitchy 4 some..the glitch seems to come from people who play 2 play throughs.. here are some solutions from other sites to help so u hopefully wont have this problem...
    1 if playing through for the first time turn auto save off
    2 play through the game on hard without turning your console off or reloading a save should only take 3 -- 6 hours.. again with auto save turned off
    3 if u have beaten the game on hard with auto save on and still no achieve.. after u are done turn auto save off..worked for some, just not 4 me :(
    4 as a last resort go into dashboard and delete all save files and go through again with auto save off.. step 4 worked 4 me as a last resort

    if i have missed something or u personally know a better way leave a comment so i can update the solution...

    i would write an actual guide to go along with this solution but truly their is no need only hard part were the duals and 4 those just use the shield spell and hope ur allies kick some ass.. just be warned if u are only playing this game on hard the mini games are far harder than they would be on easy... may want to play thru twice 4 that reason alone

    just got my chieve. if this is the only achievment you need you dont need to do any discoveries.
    just the 28 DA members, then a couple things for Fred and George(turning the courtyards into swamps) and Pavarti and her friend(PA system, stack benches and pour potion into speaker.)
    Battle as Serious(lose) battle as Dumbledore(lose eventually) then kick his rear as the Legendary Harry Potter and blink.
    this took about 5 hours. DA took the longest.
    If you need help with the tasks the students need before they join the DA has a lot of videos.( Harry Potter OOTP blah blah's walkthrough) blah blah is the students name that your task is for.
    I did 2 of 3 teacher mini quests but I don't think you need too.
    Oh and i turned off auto save and did it in 1 sitting. (48% when i got it)

    Broon43I think you hit the nail on the head with your guide.
    I'll just add another wrinkle, for those thinking that save files from other games/difficulties will make this cheev glitchy. I have 3 save files on all 3 of my memory devices, and this finally unlocked for me on a brand NEW save slot, getting 100% discoveries, all 3 teacher mini-quests, finding all DA members, rooms, etc, BEFORE defeating Voldemort, WITH auto save OFF. Once I beat Voldemort, this achievement popped, and I wasn't expecting it to.
    I tried the hard difficulty before and didn't complete a lot of what I mentioned above and the cheev didn't unlock for me when I defeated Voldemort. Food for thought.

    The only thing that i found harder on this difficulty is the duelling, but to be honest it wasnt even much more of a challenge than on easy. I did every achievement on medium difficulty then completed it on hard afterwards, so basically i managed to do this on like level 2 spell power which is pretty crap. Just keep it simple in duels, keep casting protego non stop if you get stuck, and levicorpus is always good to get in coz it holds them up and you can continuaslly fire spells at them. Voldemort is slightly harder, but as dumbledore just keep casting protego and throw in a stupefy whenever possible its quite easy.
