With results day not long away now, it's the end of an era for so many of you.

Some of you will be saying goodbye to School/Six Form/College forever and moving on to the next stage of your lives. :woo:

I know studying, deadlines and exams might not be the most fun to some of you, but I was thinking about when I was in school and there are some good memories as well! :yep:

What do you miss/ what will you miss when you finally say goodbye to your school years?

Honestly not a lot, apart from friends of course. Really enjoyed sixth form and freedom that came with it(spoons in frees), but looking forward to moving on and meeting like-minded people.

Quite a lot tbh, especially when compared to uni. I miss the fact that the teachers at my school genuinely cared (not all of them as some were **** but most). I had a really lovely history teacher who would let me go to him and speak to him about my nightmares on a friday. At university the tutors give no ****s about you at all.
Same with the students, at school i was never in a group as such but by the time of year 13 i was pretty well liked by people in my year and although i dindt have close friends i would say hi to pretty much everyone in my year when we passed in the corridors and i knew if i went in the common room i could easily find someone to chat to. At uni everyone is in cliques and unless you like drinking there is little opportunity to get to know people as all the socialising occurs in bars and pubs outside of lectures and uni time. Even if you join societies that's where most of their socials are held. There are housemates but it depends on the luck of the draw, my second year house was mostly alright and pretty social but am not sure anyone even knew i existed in first year. It gets pretty lonely and unlike at school you cant just go home at the end of the day and see your mum who will cook you a nice dinner and you can have a nice talk to.
I also like the curriculum diversity in school, i dont mind what im doing now but it gets boring quite quickly as everything is relatively the same from project to project. At school especially lower down i loved the fact you could go from doing history to doing art to doing english. Even in classes i didnt like such as spanish at GCSE, noone else liked it either so there was sort of this camaraderie bond of we are all in this crap together.
I felt like i achieved well at school, i was in a grammar and pretty high up within the sets etc. I feel like i peaked at school as i came out with 9A*s and 8As in total across GCSE, AS and Alevel whereas now i feel like im just getting by and going through the motions just to get a good job without any real enjoyment. I took the subject that had the most interest for me whilst being at least vaguely employable so i doubt i would have been any happier doing something else, it's not really the subject it's just the doing the same sort of area every day is pretty boring to me. I just liked that variation of the KS3 timetable, maybe im a jack of all trades master of none.

I thought i would meet like minded people but all ive met so far is people who enjoy drinking and clubbing :/
I wanted to find people who loved 20th and 21st century military history, who loved birdwatching, who loved guinea pigs and other small rodents and have a strong passion against pedigree breeding and brachycephalic dogs but im still known as that slightly odd one same as i was in school. Maybe there is noone with my interests and am just weird

Going to miss my Year 13 sociology lessons with my teacher, SBR. She was the best and we would always crack jokes with the whole class (there's only 5 of us in total, including my teacher and I ) when she's in a good mood. She's also lowkey savage lel.

Damn, it's been 3 years since I was in sixth form...

Really miss those times tbh. I was much happier back then. My life really went downhill since those times and I've hit rock bottom more times than I can count. But hey, true growth comes from discomfort so there's a positive to all this suffering.

Oh yeah to answer the question before I get carried away with my sob story ( :rolleyes: ), I miss the bants with my sports teachers.

Free periods, smaller teaching sizes, learning content at a comfortable pace compared to warp speed at uni, teachers invested in your progess/care to a greater level, easier to make friends/new people - uni is cool but much prefer 6th form

I will really miss all the banta we lot had in the Sixth Form common room and the reactions of whoever was supervising us lol. But apart from that, I will also miss hanging out with my mates but I will still be in contact with them whatever uni they go to, and yeah...that's it. On the whole I am glad I am leaving school for good, just hate sticking to timetables, waking up at 7 in the morning for no damn good reason and getting treated like **** by teachers. And also studying more than one subject, I really hate it.
