    I wonder if I will ever find out anything good about being one of the youngest of my academic year. An august birthday myself, I find it utterly frustrating. I couldn't find a job when all my friends had jobs, I couldn't enter the lottery when my friends could (not that I wanted to, it's just the restriction). Imagine how it is going to be when everyone starts turning 18 - pubs - oh no. I think the only option is fake ID! Fellow august birthdays, we really do have a rubbish time! We should get extra money or something.

    The moral of this story is - mothers don't give birth in August.

    I'm a late september person (which goes back to december) and I'm one of the oldest... it's a very thin line between oldest and youngest :p:

    you could go to the pub with your 'older' friends and have a valid reason for not getting a round in

    My birthdays august 17 and I had that problem last year, torture it is, the irony of it is I haven't been ID'd once since I turned 18 where as I got it all the time before I was, except for one time when I went to get the euro lottery for my mum :rolleyes:

    I know someone born on 1st September, and her sister was born on 31st August, so they're in the same year but there is a year between them...that must be weird :eek: Just think a day after the youngest turns 16, the oldest can start driving lessons!

    Plus, if you have girlfriends/boyfriends in your year they're pretty much guaranteed to be older than you.
    I'm now an older woman. Damn you August mothers.

    It sucks I know. My birthday is 21st August and I'm 5th youngest in my year. It's not just the fact that all your friends can smoke/have sex/buy a house/get married/get a job......it's also the fact that you feel really old for a few weeks before going back to school and in September most of your friends turn 17.

    RUBBISH

    it's great being the youngest -

    Academically if you do badly it's a great excuse, if you do well it makes it look even better

    Birthdays are ALWAYS in the holidays...and even better in the holidays with nice weather and a bank holiday and lots of "stuff" going on around the same time

    Once you get a bit older you'll realise that being younger is actually not such a bad thing

    Actually I agree about that. Even though I'm the youngest, I'll probably be amongst the top 10 come results day which kind of pisses my friends off and allows me to smirk at them.

    You can always, always use the "forgot my ID" trick at the pub. Persuade the bouncer/barman that since all your friends are 18/19, why would they let you tag along with them ? Always worked for me, even though I have an October birthday.

    I don't get the looking cleverer rationale - you've had just as much education!
