I have received some questions on this one so I will share how I finally achieved it. This was the most difficult mini-game to 5 star. I played through the game on Advanced so that I wouldn't have to play it twice, so it is probably better on Easy but I am not sure if it is worth it for a second play-through.

There are 3 categories you are scored on, accuracy, spell variety and avoiding spells. The variety is easy, just select each of your spells and make sure they hit. Some are easy to see like when you freeze them, levitate them and knock them to the ground. The incendio and stupify attacks you need to just watch for little hearts to come out of them and also their individual health bars will appear and go down a little bit.

The key to landing the spells seems to be always raising your left hand as soon as Hermione's bar has recharged. When you have her help, the deatheaters always attack her. ***HOWEVER*** they do a ton of protego spells that send your own attacks right back at you very quickly. So my pattern would always be throwing 3 quick spells and then immediately ducking.

The best combo I found once I had landed all of my spells was to use the levioso (spelling?) attack to pull them into the air. If you use 2-3 of them real fast and then duck, you can watch to see if they hit from behind cover. Then when they are suspended in the air switch to incendio quickly and throw 3-4 spells quickly. At least 2-3 of them will land while they are hanging and bring down their health about 1/4.

For accuracy, by this point you should be pretty good with aiming your spell left, right or center. I am fairly certain that spells you cast that the enemy uses protego to deflect count as a hit. I would throw quite a few spells and still have a 70-80% accuracy.

Hope that helps those of you who have asked me about it.
