Top 10 Most Difficult School Grades

The Top Ten
1 11th grade

11th grade is the worst year of high school. Socially it's really hard ache and I don't know why because freshman and sophomore year seemed easy social wise. I only had one really hard class but my other classes weren't too bad I didn't join math class even though Lara was a lot of noisy and annoying people in that class I like the teacher. Hard thing about being a junior is that all the teachers put a bunch more expectations on you and say you're a junior now and not only that but college is looming which makes it extra stressful.

Stress for college starts picking up and you have to recover from all of you past mistakes throughout high school. Socially it's atrocious because all the students of your class are either suffering early senioritis or disgustingly stressed and competitive. It's also when you're almost an adult, but you still have to deal with being treated as a teenager who thinks they know everything but are actually too dumb to function. It's the worse year because of pressure academically: socially, and mentally.

2 7th grade

I finished 7th and heading into 8th grade. I know there are probably worse grades, but right now it's the worst one. I can explain in one word, stress. Good luck for upcoming 7th graders.

I am currently in 7th grade, they spoon feed you and act like middle school is going to be easy in 6th grade. Over the summer some drama starts and carries on into 7th grade. To make things worse, the teachers that you liked last year became worse and the bad teachers get even worse. The work becomes a lot harder and they expect you to do it in little time. They don't grade anything either to make life worse. You then become depressed and stressed out, your probably also going through puberty at this point. The teachers make everything seem easy when they really just want to sit on you. Good Luck 6th graders who are going to 7th grade!

I currently am in 7th grade, (almost done) but it has been the hardest grade so far. I'm a straight A student and for whatever reason this year was the hardest for me to keep up my grade. Usually in school you learn something new, although you repeat the subject many times till you understand it or teachers come back to it. In 7th grade however, if your not paying attention for 3 minutes, there goes your grade. I know every school is different, my friend in another school didn't have the same problems but I did. You never really have time to lay down and watch T.V. its just homework, then IF you have time STUDY cause we had quizzes, pop quizzes daily. It also sucked for some of the students like myself that had after school activities. I know teachers try to balance the work they give us, although at the end its just to much. All of these problems seems normal for high schoolers maybe even those in college, but don't forget seventh graders are new teens and usually didn't have this much work before, they are still new at the system and still need to get used to it.

3 12th grade

It's been a nightmare. The jump from Year 10 to Year 11 wasn't SO bad, but then there was this - oh boy. February was bearable, but then there was March - I got drowned, and I repeat DROWNED, in homework. There was the time I got up at 3 in the morning, the time I worked until 9:30pm, and pretty much every day of this I was working all morning and stopping only for breakfast! The following holidays in April, as ready as I normally would have been for a break, I just had too much PTSD to enjoy myself.

Then came May - birthday month. I had been planning to celebrate with a trip to Wagga for years, and I thankfully just made it, but that came at the cost of extra-late homework nights all through the week leading up to it. By the time I'd made it through all that, the only thing I had left was my English book, but I abandoned that because I'd never read those anyway but still got away with it every time. But when I got home, I stopped and realised that I'd really never had an excuse for that my teachers would approve of. My conclusion was that, ever since I'd skipped Alex Rider in Year 7 and all the books since, I'd evolved more and more into a criminal, and the only way to make up for it would be to devote all my free time for the rest of the year to reading every book I'd skipped and rewriting all the assignments. Naturally, I didn't, but I have been reading my English books since, and they have been a slog.

If university is anything like this, I want out. This sort of BS frankly makes me question why we humans ever even left the jungle.

4 8th grade

My favorite part of eighth grade hands down was leaving. Like I said before seventh grade isn't so bad at our school district but eighth grade is significantly worse. The kids are still obnoxious and they start to really get on your nerves by that time. Not only that but the teachers put lotta homework on you I hardly even get time to relax in that grade because you've got like homework coming from at least four classes at once. The worst class was English. We had to read the most boring books. We also had to learn about Greek and Latin root words. The worst part was when we had To read Macbeth even though we were only in eighth grade. You may not have an English teacher like this, but if you're from my school district And you're reading this then you know exactly who I'm talking about.

So I'm halfway through 8th grade. And I thought 7th grade was hell, but no. It just keeps getting harder year by year. What's genuinely hardest about this year is trying to maintain being a musician-student-athlete. I have really strict parents, so if I don't have all A+'s and A's, I know it's not gonna end well. That's already challenging enough considering I have some really strict teachers. For me, most classes are fairly manageable besides math and ela. Those classes are so time-consuming and stressful. I'm in advanced math, so I'm basically learning 9th-grade math, and it's so damn confusing and hard. Trying to manage all that while also having to practice my piano and clarinet almost every day makes it 10x harder. But it doesn't end there. I'm also on a gymnastics team (practice 6 days), my swim team (practice 6 days), my school basketball team (practice/games 5-6 days a week), and my outside AAU basketball team (practice 3 days a week, games Sundays). And it's so tiring trying to balance out anything. Oh, we can't forget the classical middle school problems - trying to fit in and body image issues. I'm the therapist's friend so I have to deal with everyone's drama and stuff and rn I just feel like I'm sick of everyone's bs. I literally get no time to myself and it feels like I'm in an endless void. And I know I'm not the only one, I know so many other teenagers can relate. I can't wait for this year to be over.

5 10th grade

10th grader here, starting the school year a bit rough on online school, I'm supposed to have 11 classes this year and am only taking 3 with college courses on the side. Even worse, I'm one of those people who learn stuff by reading the same thing over & over again, so I'll be a bit behind this year.

I'm having constant projects and I haven't had a single break since the beginning of the year, I just finished a group project and so far we've had around 4 the entire year. I have tests in almost all of my classes. For some reason a book report in health which has no reason to be there. And constant tests and vocabulary. I didn't have a fall break, and I got sick due to staying up to a straight 24 hours with no break only doing homework. I then had an allergic reaction and this past thanksgiving break, I've had to read near 50+ pages every single day of this book for health.

I only take 2 APS, yet I'm up at 3am almost every single night doing homework. (I wake up at 5:30am) On average, I have 3-4 tests every single week. I don't even have time to study for the tests, because I'm too busy doing the homework. I'm also a student-athlete... which can really make it harder to get the work done. It honestly sucks, because in order to get into a good college, you have to have good academics, would like you to play a sport AND BE GOOD IN IT, and also be involved in clubs. I'm in three clubs as well. It's almost impossible for me to get through all of this. Teachers act as if they're your only class. I don't even have anytime to be a teenager, as my weekends are taken up by literally homework or swim meets. I am mentally and physically drained.

6 9th grade

It's really hard to transition from top dog at the middle school, to a freshman target in high school. In my opinion after 9th you are used of the rules of high school and how everything works.

If you messed up and slack off in this grade, you're pretty much doomed and will have to live with your mommy for the rest of your life. I slacked off, have a 2.3 GPA because of it, and there is no hope of bringing it up.

Super unforgiving. One small screw up and it's over. Get sleep in middle school while you can, because you won't get any in high school.

7 6th grade

It is summer right now and I am so glad! 6th Grade has been my least favorite year FOR SURE. Not only are there 10 buildings! 7 classes, and harsh teachers. The 7th graders and 8th graders make dirty jokes you don't understand...there is cursing and cussing and guess what! I didn't even know that there was an f word before 6th grade! not to mention four of my friends moved. it's nothing like fifth. On the first day of 6th grade which is the first day of middle school, I wore a dress and people sarcastically bullied me, nobody else wore one! My mom told me it would get better but it didn't and I started getting back pain and headaches because our school didn't have lockers and I had to carry everything all the time. The schedule was confusing because it was different each day (like EVEN AND ODD PERIODS TODAY)(EVEN PERIODS THURSDAY)ODD ODD EVEN TUESDAY)PERIODS 1625 NEXT WEEK) like bruh. I want to go to highschool RIGHT NOW because my mom is a teacher there

8 5th grade

I am stuck in 5th grade. We got our second Semestral report cards. My mom was more happy then she had ever been. There are 3 semesters (Baseline, Midterm and Final) per school year. The final is going to be extremely hard and I don't know how I'm supposed to pass my final exam. We have like the New York state ELA and math assessments. I had to create a huge power-point about Chile and it has to be like 15 slides and it has to include transitions, word animations, a theme and like we have to insert a background image. If you think 5 paragraphs is too much..., In the beginning of the year I had to type a 745-word essay on MS word to go to middle school. My parents are going to meet my teachers in 2 days and I'm very nervous

God damn I hate 5th grade we have this book report we have to do over Christmas break I mean come on why can't I just chill and have a good time but hell no. Also there's so much drama over estupito stuff like I don't have time for drama. Also there are straight up weird people ngl. I have 5 more months until my misery ends. I wish I could burn 5th grade but that's physically I'm possible. When I leave 5th grade I will be so much happier.

9 3rd grade

Third grade was hard because we got drilled on our multiplication and division facts and we had to finish our test papers by 1 minute! In the end I did it! This was frustrating for me since I was used to getting all 100s 90s and 80s and I got a lot of 60s because of this! Also my teacher paid attention to every. tiny. detail. She gave me a 60 for forgetting to put a coma in four of my 1,000s! Everything else was correct! After that I checked my test papers 3 times before handing it in!

I'm in 4th grade right now but 3rd grade I did my worst. I just came out of online school after corona virus but I have to say it was mostly just me.
Accept my teacher yells really loud. homework was kinda hard in the middle of the school year. but as far as the end of the year? IT IS SO FREAKING FUN! We had field day, fun day and writing celebrations. Our teacher read books to us during snack time and if we wanted too and it had one we can watch the movie that goes with it! at the beginning of 3rd grade 8/10 middle 3/10 end 10/10

10 4th grade

Fourth grade was super sought for me. My best friend was really rude to me and lied about having serious medical issues multiple times just to get rid of my other bff. We aren't friends anymore. Math was really hard and I bearly got passing grades for math.

I think it is hard drama wise because if you don't hag out with someone they go and tell the teacher and the next thing you know you are in the principals office. Also because you want to act grown up but also play with toys. My teacher even said that 4th grade is the hardest education wise because you have to learn something new and like in 3rd grade you just built off of what you already learned!

4th grade gets a medium hard 6/10, a big step from the 3rd grade, and a lot less of the work is fun work. It is very possible once again to finish all the work at school, There are 5-7 assignments a day but most take less than 10 minutes so it is pretty close to the 5th grade, a little less though. It's hard in the beginning, but if you are reading this and are gonna be in the grade soon, you can make it through.

The Contenders
11 Kindergarten

Kindergarten is so easy, you just do very simple schoolwork, and you only get 1 page of homework, or none at all. Also, kindergarten kids at my school were really sweet and nice (I don't know about other schools)

This shouldn't be on the list but I see what is meant. If you didn't go to pre school especially, being little and knowing nothing this can be tough.

This is the only item that should be taken off this list. Kindergarten is the easiest grade. Well for me.

12 1st grade

1st grade was the worst for me because I had a horrible, abusive teacher who would always lock me out of the classroom. Also why is 7th grade on here? This may be unpopular but I'm in the 7th grade and I actually love it.

They are just learning to read. Yet they are expected to take all the things they have learned, pull them together to read, comprehend and then be able to write about it independently.

You have pretty good arguments. I find the school cutoff date to be unfair, especially in the elementary school years, considering everyone is still starting to learn to read. I am currently in 6th grade

13 2nd Grade

I hated my 2nd grade teacher. It felt like she picked on me all the time. Her name was Mrs. Laws and her name definitely fits. Me and my friend used to talk a lot and she would constantly send me to the back to sit alone. My friend was very sensitive so she hardly got in trouble because whenever she did she would start crying. I renember my teacher would make us stand up straight and she had this red pen she used to correct us with. I seriously hated her.

My school had us learn spanish. In 2nd grade, I knew, like, a few words in spanish. And our teacher would, like, always talk to us in spanish! I never had any idea of what she was talking about, and I didn't learn anything!

Eh, I'm in 6th grade now and for me 2nd grade was only mildly hard, but it was also pretty fun.

14 13th grade

To the people saying it doesn't exist, it does, or at least it used to. I know someone whose high school had that extra year and I think it's still an option for anyone wanting extra credits, but I could be wrong. If I am though, there's also college which is technically 13th grade.

According to Wikipedia, a TOTALLY reliable source, 13th grade in some places is senior year of high school.

I'm in 13th grade at my high school. My teachers call it a super senior. I'll be in 14th grade next year.

15 Preschool

Preschool was so hard! I struggled on how to pronounce dog and how to do 1 plus 1, and 2 takeaway 1! Plus taking naps was so brutal and mentally draining! Then, we get to play with our toys all day! Why would they stress out a child like this? I'm glad I'm out of preschool now because golly it was hell!

Preschool was hard. We took naps for an hour! Brutal! The worst part was that we made sock puppets! Nah, just kidding. Preschool was the greatest. We didn't do any work all year and just played around with toys. Nowadays, preschoolers probably have their own IPods to play, but back when I was in preschool, iPods were only used for playing music (we're talking early 2000's stuff).

I voted for preschool just to say how much I loved it back then. I was fairly popular, it was easy, we had kind caretakers/teachers, all I could do was drawing terribly without being judged, playing with toys and attending dance classes when everyone was taking a nap. It felt magical for my little mind.
