Would anyone love to start primary/secondary school all over again? What would people do differently?
I would love to go back to nursery and play in the sand- but i think i'd get bored of it to be honest.
I would seriously like to learn a language like french all over again right from the beginning- i had a dreadful teacher for my first 2 years and it gave me a hatred of a subject that should be fascinating. by my gcses i was actually starting to understand it + i think if i started again i would learn it much better.
Is there anything people wouldn't like to do again? i don't think i'd like to restart maths- i don't think it would benefit me to relearn it + it would confuse me because i would know how go further in a calculation.
tell me your opinions....

For em the best years of my senior school were years 8 and 9. There was no stress; you barely had to revise for exams, and went on loads of school trips, especially in year 9.

Anyone wonder now how we could actually do 9/10 subjects for our GCSEs, with very few frees. Now, with just 3 A levels, it seems about 10 times more difficult to learn. Then I guess 1 module is equivalent to 1 GCSE. Therefore with 3 A levels, we are probably doing the equivalent of 9 GCSEs (each year), except that I'd much rather prefer the standard of the GSCEs.

I'd like to do some stuff again, coz although it would be hard work to do Say As or GCSEs again. I was really annoyed wiv my Maths GCSE result because I needed to sit the higher paper but because I had only got a level 6 in my sats in yr 9 I was in the I group, but still had to do the higher paper, and I was only 1 mark of a B....

I'd love to relive my whole life again - with the knowledge I now know! I mean, with the life experience of an 18 year old, life would be so much easier!
a) You won't cry and stress over someone calling you an idiot or some other mild insult, which you might get upset over at the age of 0-10.
b) You'd find all lessons easy, so school etc would be for the simple purpose of socialising.. doesnt sound bad eh?
c) You wouldn't stress and cry over silly little tests (until you get to GCSEs and A-levels)
d) You'd be more streetwise and confident and therefore the world wouldn't seem as scary as it can to a little kid
e) You could know from experience what kind of people to stay away from and what kind of people look friendly etc. and so just make friends with the nice ones and avoid getting hurt!

Can't think of anything else! But all in all, I would definitely like to go back and try it all again.

Another interesting point, is would you relive life, if it were a different life.. eg would you want to be born to super-rich parents or kings and queens, or would you be the child of a loving but hardup family... how about being born in a village in africa with loadsa tradition but without the comforts of modern day life?

I voted for nursey, though I'm starting to think twice.
1) My mum died when I was 2 1/2 so I dont want to go through that with the knowledge I have now.
2) School was really bad. College is way better.
3) It's boring!

College rocks! Live for now, forget the past and bring it on!

I'd do everything I failed to do the first time round. I'd work hard, listen to the teacher and do all my homework. I'd have 100% attendsnce and spend all my free time reading books.

Ok, so I probably won't be popular with the others... but what the hell! I'd spend my free time helping out old people, charities, businesses, you name it! In fact, I might even work on my own business, creating an online Internet service or something.

If I'd done all this the first time round, I'd be in a much better position than I'm in now.

I wish I could start over and change stuff I did at secondary school / 6th form.

On the other hand my screw-ups in the past make absolutely no difference to where I am today and feeling on top of the world.

So no, I wouldn't restart.

I wouldn't go back - no regrets I like where I am now and I wouldn't want to change any of the sequence of events that got me here
