    So I was wondering what is/was your expectation and what was the reality. Im spliting into four times lower school (Year 7 - 9), upper school (year 10 - 11), College and uni. Try and remember what you thought going in and what you thought after the novelty wore off.

    so what did you think these places would be like?
    How did it compare to the real thing?
    do you think the different was you being unrealistic, the open days over promoting parts of the place, your actions making it different or something else?

    I expected uni to be a non-stop orgy. I was sorely disappointed

    lower school (Year 7 - 9):
    Expected: big scary, over formal and hard
    Reality: Nice friendly place
    upper school (year 10 - 11):
    Expected: working all night (sometimes), constant pressure and too much hard work
    Reality: lots of help and aslong as you kept up with the work ok
    College:
    Expected: More of a "you can **** up what ever you like attitude but its your live", if you keep to the deadlines it will be ok and constant small flow of work
    Reality: strict, working all night (sometimes), constant pressure and too much hard work

    maybe ill be right one day
