    Of course school is a fundamental aspect of development in the early stages of life, but it's just starting to feel pointless.

    Why should I go to school for 7 hours a day to complete some work that will take maximum 3 hours to do? I know teachers help to understand some aspects and that's OK but I feel like so much time is wasted, 7 hours a day or 5 days a week - something feel wrong..

    For instance, last week we were doing revision before our mocks. On Tuesday I had 3 lessons, 1.5 hours each. We got through just about a topic per subject! I could have this done at home much faster with time to memorise, practice and extracurricular stuff.

    It's also infuriating how we complete such pointless tasks at school, like using "modelling clay".. what even

    Sometimes its better to bend with the wind.
    Your teachers are assets if you know how to get the most out of them.
    Ask your parents to be home schooled if you feel that will work or get exceptional scores to get into a top sixth form or uni.
