There were only two challenges in the extreme mode that will give you any trouble.

The first is the Mandrake planting challenge. The best advise I can give is to be slow and deliberate when hovering the hand icon over the mandrake when you are choosing it. Once you have a hold of the Mandrake, move your hand back and forth as fast as possible. Always chose to plant in the pot closest to you. You will only have to repel slugs one time and there will be two plants you have to us the repellent on. When watering the plants, the lower you hold your hand , the faster the water pours. No wasted movement and you should have this one done in no tiem.

The last extreme challenge is the hardest part of the game by far which is on the roller coaster in Gringott's bank. Repetition and control are your best friends. I would recommend doing the map 2-3 times trying to remember the turns. The most important thing is to get your timing down on when to lean going into the curves and when to let go of your lean. It gets faster after each dodging stage so you will go through your leans more quickly. The other biggest time grabs are the parts where you have to lean on one rail only. Try to make the lean as slight as possible so that you can get both wheels back on the track until the next lean.

This took me between 10-15 tries before I finally finished with a time just under 44 seconds. Practice makes perfect!
