I won't state my height, because I'll just get a load of replies saying things like "oh you're lucky im only 5'5 so stop complaining" but anyways,

I'm in Year 12/6th form and we wear suits, and feel small compared to others, like most of the girls in year 10 and 11 either the same height or taller. So I wanna know.. What are the chances of me growing a few inches taller in the remainder of year 12, year 13 or even after that, as I don't want to feel like this in Uni. And my dads 5'11 so I'm hoping to at least reach that height. Taller people definitely get more respect, can intimidate when they want, and you form better first impressions of taller people! Now I know this may sound like complete crap, and naive, but it's how I feel rn. Also did any of you grow a few inches in 6th form/college years?

Thanks

It's not about height, it's about projecting confidence.

The taller they are, the harder they fall.

Suck it up or be prepared to be owned by a bad ass midget.

if it makes you feel any better i knew a few friends who had late growth spurts in sixth form and ended up being 6ft+ when I was taller than them before. but at the end of the day there's not a lot you can do about it. learn to appreciate what you have. there are people born with severe disabilities or living without arms or legs.

Here is a serious answer for you mate. I have grown 2 inches since I have been in college from 6'2-6'4 and a lot of men continue to grow until they are in their 20's. So you will be fine mate don't worry about. I know guys who are the smallest in the room but they project confidence and friendliness and it draws people in

You will probably grow to your Dad's height, OP. Relax. Even if you don't, it doesn't have to matter - if you feel inferior just because you're shorter, that's on you.

Taking the fact you said you are the same height as most girls in year 10/11 i'm going assume your between the 5' 4 - 5,7 mark. You referenced your dads height so i am assuming your a male. I don't bare much good news since most men stop growing at 16 years old. There are exceptions. I would look at all the men in your family, how many of them were/are short? If most the men in your family are tall and your concerned about your height, you may benefit from going to the doctor as something could be halting your growth.

If it is that this is just your height then there are many ways to learn to love yourself. A short male has just as many advantages as a tall male. At the end of the day its about personality not height. If you go round been angry because your upset about been short, people will not like you. If you just be nice to people they will see past your height.

If it makes you feel any better my old school friend is the same height as me 5'4 and he has never encountered many problems due to his height.

I would answer you question about the chances of you growing taller but you didn't mention your lifestyle habits such as diet, sleep, amount of physical activity, medication, supplements you take, maintaining posture etc so I can't give you a real idea. Besides, you need to check if your growth plates are closed but you need an X-ray because if they are closed then it would be really difficult although the growth plates for boys close between 16 to 25 but it's different individually. If they're not closed, then use aromatose inhibitors such as 15 to 30mg of zinc with 1-4mg of copper to slow process of closing growth plates, you can also find it in cruciferous vegetables such as brocolli, cabbage and cauliflower

I actually didn't ask about how to deal with being insecure about it.. I asked what the chances are of guys growing a few inches in sixth form and if any of you did. But oh well, sorry if I worded it badly.

I think I grew about an inch and a half...so around 4-5 cm from when I was 16 and now (18).
