    It was okay, though Year 10 is pretty memorable. I'd say the best part of my life was when I was 10-12.

    Loved it unimaginably sometimes Hated it incomprehensibly other times.

    Secondary school was okay apart from sixth form which was terrible. Uni was the best time of my life.

    Really? I think Sixth form is better than secondary school because at least after the lesson you're not forced to be there, and the class size is smaller. And best of all I dont have to do any physical activity whatsoever.

    I personally didn't like it that much except year 10 and 11 (a little bit). I much preferred my sixth form which was really far away from my secondary school where no one else from my school was there.

    For me secondary school was the opposite - it was the worst 5 years of my life. I was so relieved when I finally finished year 11!

    Lmao same. While everyone was crying and hugging each other I think I was the only person jumping for joy, the indoctrination had finally ended. No more sleepless Sundays, I could finally start living.

    Secondary school time wasn't the best or worst time of my life, it was just a mix of up and downs. College days were much better though :yep:

    True, but I had very poor mental health during sixth form and really struggled with my work, meaning my grades were a lot lower than they could have been. My family weren't supportive and my friends basically ditched me. The problem with sixth form is that people think they're all grown up but they're essentially still children and act like it too. Whereas at university I found better friends, got a lot of support from doctors and psychiatrists and escaped my family.

    Years 7-11 were horrendous. Sixth Form was alright I guess. I hope to have better days/years of my life than that though :eek:

    Year 7 and 8 were the best of times. Year 9 was MEH. Some good times, some bad times. Year 10 and 11 were just not as good as I wanted it to be. Not getting the girl I wanted, being tesed and sometimes bullied wasn't al good. But Year 12, the year were I had to resit my GCSE was the most DEPRESSING time I ever faced. Now that I'm going to my 2nd year of Uni, things are looking up for me, but I always get sad when I think of my life during the GCSE era.

    Primary School was lit, those were the days.

    Beyblade, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Ed Edd and Eddy, CatDog, Wild Thorn Berries, Dexter's Laboratory, Shin-Chan, Chuckle Brothers, Saved By The Bell, Keanan and Kel, Sistser Sister, Fresh Prince, Dragon Ball Z, and so so so much more:moon:

    Said it before, and I'll say it again, kids nowadays don't know the meaning of childhood.

    Year 10 was my favourite year. You had some sort of maturity and there were no exams at the end of the year. Also this meant playing cricket games for school and also there was no music, drama, art classes which I disliked.

    Sixth form was ok but there was a lot of work.

    I'm going into university now so hopefully that'll be good.
