Top Ten Worst Things About 7th Grade

There are few things I'll miss from seventh grade. My friends, and that's about it. So here are the 10 things I hated MOST about this year.

The Top Ten

1 People Are Arrogant

Hell, Even Jet The Hawk From The Sonic Franchise Behaves Better Than Most 7th Graders.

I'm at the end of 6th grade but the people are yet arrogant about everything. - cosmo

People don't think anybody is good enough for them, they're rude, bully people, and are just plain obnoxious. At least there were a few good friends as well. - Garythesnail

2 Friends Begin to Bail On You

They bail on you to get new friends and some of them become too popular to talk to you.

Really? I had barely any friends to begin with in elementary school. In middle school I actually was part of a group of friends and we didn't bail on each other (until high school and going to new schools) - Phillip873

Wow this sucks. I made so many new friends in 6th grade. Then they all left because I wasn't "bad" enough. - naFrovivuS

Many of my friends don’t talk to me often anymore

3 People Judge By Looks

Even some of my friends are like this. One of them in particular is completely boy obsessed, randomly liking a new guy every week because of why? Their looks. She's currently dating someone (she has been dating him for week, and he is her first boyfriend), but it turns out that she likes SOMEONE ELSE because of his LOOKS. Now she wants to break up with her current boyfriend. So yea... That's what I have to deal with. - Minecraftcrazy530

I'm not what people would consider "pretty", even though my mother always reminds me that I'm beautiful. I'm nice and humorous, which to me is like being beautiful on the inside. However, I know loads of people who only judge others by their looks, not their personalities or attitude. One of my closest (and nicest) friend is on her second boyfriend. They've been going out for a week, and I had to admit that I had the slightest bit of a crush on him, but it's hard not to, since his looks are GODLY. I stopped crushing on him after about two weeks of them dating because I found out he had a terrible personality and attitude and in a months' time, my friend's even planning a breakup

I swear, the girls may have had it bad in some schools, but it was the complete opposite in my school. All the girls would whine and whine that none of the boys were attractive, and then they complain that they feel too pressured to look attractive. JUST STOP, and we got no empathy from anybody, only the girls did, which was so frustrating. And people would call you ugly like it was no big deal, like what they said was supposed to have no affect on how you view yourself.

If only I had a nickel for every time someone called me ugly... I would be filthy rich - XYZeed

4 People Are Extremely Immature

The Boys Are MUCH Worse

It was even worse as kids, but seventh grade hit that weird point of "kids trying to be mature but failing miserably".

Albeit, its seventh grade. Be a kid when you're a kid. As stated above, trying to sound grown up isn't very mature either! - keycha1n

How do seventh graders on my bus still think they are the "class clowns" around here?!? What's worse is that they talk about private parts, and I can't stand them playing around and standing up on their bus seats thinking 'Oh my God! Look at me! I'm a flipping god ruling this bus! ' :/

5 Complex Math

I loved my seventh grade year (last year). It was so fun. But I hated the complex math we did, I honestly found surface area harder than polynomials this year. - Therandom

I used to love math. 7th grade was the last year I could do math without difficulty. It got increasingly harder from that point on. I hate math now. - LizardKing99

The math this year was just idiotic... When am I going to need the area of a cone in my lifetime?! - Garythesnail

Probably if you become an engineer, which will most likely never happen. - Bobby792003

Ok math isn't that bad so far - XYZeed

6 Work After State Testing

State Testing means the year-end exam. Not a test on states. - Garythesnail

That's right-after the state test, I got a HUGE packet from all FOUR of my subjects. You are kidding me... - Garythesnail

Same with me. I get final exams on THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. - Minecraftcrazy530

I have it in early April, and my school gets out in mid July.

7 Puberty

Puberty Is An Evil Curse In Reality

In fifth grade my classmates would criticize me off not wearing a bra and my breasts would show through my shirt. Then they got even bigger in sixth grade and I still didn't wear one and when we changed out for gym class I would feel self conscious in the locker room and my breasts would show and jiggle when I ran

It starts at fifth grade. But, as I am going into middle school soon, how much worse could it get? - AnonymousChick

Oh what we had to go through was worse. In 5th grade we actually took a field trip. Was it for fun with education? Nope it was about puberty. Ugh! It was especially weird with that creepy mannequin and learning about my gender and the male genders's puberties. - Anonymousxcxc

I wish I had hit puberty and I'm in 7th grade, I'm 5 1 1/2 and I still feel short I HAVE GROWN 5 1/2 INCHES SINCE 5th GRADE I MEAN COME ON - XYZeed

8 Bullies

Honestly, where I'm from I could win a metal for the most bullied person. See, I've been bullied for who I am since I was very young, and I'm talking like 2, 3, or 4 years old. Right now I'm in seventh grade and I am a favorite person to bully. My Middle School isn't necessarily the biggest school, but there are a lot of students there. I have many friends and a few close friends, however, I seldom see my friends, and my close friends and I all suffer from the same problem. Everyone judges and picks on us because of who we are, and it just isn't right. I can tell you one thing for sure, bullies aren't just a middle school thing, there a life thing. They're always going to bully you, in any way they can. But remember this, letting the bully win lets them think they can continue to bully you, don't let them win. No matter how much you think that bully is going to destroy you, remember the truth. You are just a tween(or teen) and that bully is just a sad girl(or boy) who lacks attention ...more

Well, yeah. In my school I have heard rumors of the nicest girl in the world to be mean, I don't know what to believe.

Yeah bullies.
I was bullied twice. Once in 4th and once in 5th. I'm in 6th, and I wonder how that will work out. Need some advice for the next year. - BubbleBear01

People wont stop bullying me it just wont stop ughhh - XYZeed

9 Fake Friends

I'm in 7th grade and this 9th grader whenever she sees us she just starts talking to my friend and won't shut up but she's not really our friend one time I even asked her if she likes he that much and she said no and said she was really annoying and hates talking to her

Everybody in 7th and 8th grade is so fake. Almost no one is loyal to you. Don't bother having lots of friends in 7th and 8th grade, they will use you or be fake nice to you.

Even more annoying is when some wierdo won't leave you alone and you have to be a fake friend.

YES I’m currently in the fake friends situation rn it SUCKS

10 8th Graders

I'm in eighth grade and I have to say, I do agree with this statement because some of the eighth graders (mostly the males) think they are sophisticated and all-knowing. It's really annoying, especially if you ride the bus in the morning and in the afternoon. I would usually see guys doing the Water Bottle Challenge while I stare at them blankly thinking 'What has life become? '

They should be #1. I am too popular to be bullied, but the 8th graders are retarded. Three of them think 1+1=7! Most like to tell on me for being a 7th grader, being taller than them, knowing more pi than them, random stuff I didn't do, etc.

They are jerks. And they like to jerk off random stuff. Even more than 7th graders. Even worse, some of them have no grasp of science.

I'm not mean to 7th graders, one is even my best friend - EliHbk

The Contenders

11 Sexism

One day, during gym, me and my friend (boys) ran the whole 1/3 mile track and were outta breath. We saw 10 or so girls sitting down, our gym teacher was talking to them. We sat down since we were exhausted. The gym teacher immediately yells at us: "START DOING SOMETHING, DON'T JUST SIT THERE! ". what! - EliHbk

Teachers suck. I asked a question and my teacher refused to answer. A girl asked the same question (the worst one in the school) and got a free answer. Oh, and this teacher is also almost slapped a kid (my friend) because he asked a question which nobody knew the answer to at THE TIME YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO ASK THOSE SORT OF QUESTIONS.

My teachers have this thing against boys, even the guy teacher! I hate 7th grade

so true

12 Getting homework on the weekends

Getting homework on the weekends is almost always expected of at least ONE teacher because they give you big assignments and not enough time during the week to finish them, or they load you down with other work that needs to be done by Monday, so you start pulling All-nighters over the weekend just to finish

I once got 2 projects on a 5-day weekends where we could've had some fun.

Not allowed where I am - EliHbk

Not even Hitler deserves that.

13 Language Arts

Every single week I have to do 5 paragraph essays, projects, class work, and much more. In the span of a week this is ridiculous because a 12-13 year old boy/girl shouldn't be doing this. I am also learning poetry when I want to study engineering. I don't see a point in studying LA if I'm doing engineering. When will poetry show up while making a shape?! its pointless and time consuming. I failed 3 tests because I had 5 on one day in Language Arts!

I added this because even though I do well in it it's the most boring subject ever. Most of the kids in my school (including me) hate and/or strongly dislike Language Arts. - Anonymousxcxc

It's super subjective. One teacher might think your writing is great and another might think that's terrible.

Is like we have to write essays every week!

14 You're Expected to Get Perfect Grades

My parents get mad if I get a B or B+. So far I have all A's. - cosmo

Well, one's expected to get perfect grades regardless in 7th grade or 11th grade. - Kiteretsunu

I just finished 6th grade with straight A's, but everyone is like "ohh, I can't wait for you to be in 7th grade", "finally you'll know what pain is"

If I don't get good grades I'm literally grounded for 6 months

15 Friends Suddenly Dump You

Stares and glares of the hateful faces of 12 year old girls just look at u in disgust. I'm at the point of just looking at myself in the mirrors and falling apart. I hate what everyone thinks of me. Why can't everyone just leave me alone.

This has happened to me with 3 really close friends already and I'm currently friendless.

This place is triggering me - XYZeed

My friends are all in different classes (except one of them is in my homeroom and gym, and another is in my ELA), but they're still my friends - Cartoonfan202

16 Getting an Erection In the Middle of Class

Just put your hands in your pockets and kinda point them forward. That should cover it.

Happens to me every day but why does it matter - XYZeed

That is the worst time to have it.

You just get mortified.

17 Homework

My sister never brings home homework. Either there is none or that's the reason she is failing. - AnonymousChick

I get hours of homework every weekend. - cosmo

I am writing this in the middle of doing my 7th grade homework. It sucks! I'm always doing homework by the way

18 Racism

My school is full of asians, and their fine, and the like 4 (that's actually how many black kids their are) black kids are fine, but it's telemedicine man. They insult you with words you don't know, their racist to everyone, and if you're going to insult somebody, do it in their own language.

Everyone is racist to be honest - XYZeed

I always hear the n word from one white kid, and I DESPISE him taking my friends away.

A lot of people at my school say the N word and get off scot-free. - Cartoonfan202

19 Popular Kids

I know, right? I heard a story about a middle school in my area where the popular girls would literally beat up freshmen if they wanted to be in the group. Or if they didn't want to be in the group. I am thankful I don't go there. - AnonymousChick

It's really annoying when the person you fancy, this is a boy by the way, only likes the girls that are pretty and popular. It doesn't matter that some girls and boys aren't considered pretty, good-looking or popular, it's about their personality.

Never has this been a problem, but then I go into 7th grade, and the only objective is being popular. - naFrovivuS

I don’t understand why popular kids always have to make a joke about EVERYTHING! They always distract me from doing my work!

20 Tattletales

They tell on you for completely made up stuff. They tell on you for being taller than them, even if they are twice your height, you mention someone, and they they tell on you for gossipping.

Several kids called me a tattletale because I did the right thing once

I agree. I was talking about Alden Smith, the football player. A kid named Alden told on me for gossipping.

6th graders too

21 Pointless History Lessons

Basically, you study for hours, pass a test, forget everything. Everything is school is just basically memory tests. - PeeledBanana

If I have a history teacher that makes me open my binder and date again and again, why even learn about it?

I have civics instead of history - Mariomaster63

History sucks. - Cartoonfan202

22 Immature Boys

That has "8th graders" written all over it

Nope I'm a 8th Grader and I'm very Mature 11/14/16

Boys in my grade act like 2nd graders they act so dang flipping stupid like WHADDAHEK - XYZeed

23 Mean Teachers

My English and art teacher were so mean in 7th grade. - doodie

None of my teachers are mean but I have 2 strict ones - XYZeed

Yess my language teacher always had a bad mouth - 23windomt

My 7th grade homeroom teacher gave me a lunch detention for nothing once >:(

24 Obsession Over Creepypastas Horror Movies Etc

In every 7th Grader it seems to be a trend of Obsessing over Scary stuff. - Aguythatpeopleignores

25 Beatings

Yea sure, my 6th grade had 7th graders who acted like those stubborn dogs, but I can't even IMAGINE everyone being like them.

26 Bathrooms

My school's bathrooms have burned out and/or broken lights, the "Boys" and "Girls" signs fell off, the floor is rotten (you can step on dirt in some places), the toilets are broken (not that they won't flush, they are smashed into pieces), no stalls, and no door.

Bathrooms are dirty and not well kept, most of my friends hold it till they go home.

If you have those bathrooms when you pee it echoes out, it will be hell if your fire alarm would ring in that bathroom. I'm pretty sure you would faint or blackout because of the loud volume.

No locks and gays everywhere, why?!?! - EliHbk

27 Perverted Boys

Trust me, the girls at my school are twice as perverted then the guys. - cosmo

These guys have been around since I have been in the 4th grade

Perverted boys in my school are the people who get good grades.

Yeah,me as one of them...

28 Wearing All Black

This is the part where 7th graders say "that's racist" - EliHbk

Lol that's me though - EliHbk

It's cool

29 Working in groups

I end up doing more work and getting more stressed on a group project than if I just did it by myself! "me face palming mentally" - BubbleMokTae

I always get a bad group.

Honestly, the teacher gives you a partner that you don’t work well with, say you are getting individual grades so try your best and then gives you a low grade just because you couldn’t cooperate. Ugghhh

30 Crushes

I am in 7th grade and I feel like I like every boy in the school. I can't stop thinking about one in particular though. I am in love with him and he's perfect for me, but I don't feel comfortable telling him how I feel. I think he's already dating someone...

Only really when random girls (or boys if you're a girl) that you've never seen before ask you out, then you never see them again.

I like this girl and I asked her out but I was rejected and I could not even look at her without being embaressed but e are good friends but I like her more than that please help me

I'm in 7th and my crush, I literally can't stop thinking abt him omo

31 Locker Room

I heard a story about a kid in my grade (a girl) who would strip naked and walk around saying "look at my boobs" - XYZeed

Worst part of middle school, full of perverted kids and those people who try to flip your lock! - Phillip873

The locker rooms are a place full of gossip

One time a guy snuck into the locker room at my middle school. The girls locker room has these little rooms in it so you can change privately, this particular day I was in the one closest to the door. I heard the door open, I just expected it to be sombody that was late. This kid ran to my stall and took my bra off. I can't go in changerooms anymore.

32 Evil Teachers

They're not evil, just very strict. - cosmo

My math teacher is a jerk and she gives us lots of homework over the weekends.

Yeah my English teacher is evil

The main antagonist are English/ILA teachers. In my class, I got a C just for sloppy spelling. Even my dudes and the girl NEXT to me said it isn't sloppy!

33 Jocks and Cheerleaders

These types of persons are just plain annoying! Cheerleaders hang in groups of girls and jocks yell stupid stuff during class! 10/10 would do 7th grade again!

Jocks are guys that think they own the girls when all they own is a backpack and some pencils

so cool

34 People Who Never Shut Up

Certain people, mainly the popular kids, won't stop running their mouths about others. And when they aren't spreading rumors, they are constantly running their mouths in class, which leads to the teacher hating the entire class, which then leads to her giving out extra homework to the entire class, whether you're a straight A student who never gets in trouble or if your're a hooligan who doesn't complete their work and screws around in class

35 Cursing and Porn

Cursing is fun. It makes me feel more grown up because little kids aren't supposed to curse

Both aren't popular, cursing is me though - EliHbk

I hate cursing.

Uhh why is porn bad exactly?

36 Idiots

Like Jordan Burgei

37 New Kids

Ok this is just rude - XYZeed

38 Everyone makes fun of you

At our school everyone is kind and people are just being sarcastic if they ever make fun of you

Lucky. - XYZeed

39 Low Self Esteem And Self Doubt
40 Gym is Boring

It has always been a pointless, demeaning, unimportant excuse for education, whatever the stage in education it is, and yet it is compulsory for so long. It boggles the mind how the education system is so flawed even up to a postgraduate level. - PositronWildhawk

Athletics is worse than regular P.E. though. I'm currently in it, and signing up for it was one of the worst decisions of my middle school career. - Minecraftcrazy530

P.E. is underrated. People just hate it because they're not into sports, just like I hate music class because I'm not into music. - Puga

Literally 90% of my gym classes are the class playing b-ball or sitting down - EliHbk

41 Teachers Playing On Their Phones

Teachers are so hypocritical. They give you detention for having your phone out, yet they play on their phones

42 Keyboarding

No we were allowed to look at the keyboards Also I got really good and fast typing skills I mean I could type nearly ANY key without looking and know where they all are And I typed this whole thing without looking too the only keys I don't know are the F# and the ones to the right expect the arrow keys (Also I can type with my eyes closed Fun Fact: Everything In () I typed with my eyes closed it rlly helps! ) - lol2016

Seriously, what kind of class is this? This has to be one of the most worthless classes ever.

So Torturous

Lol at my old school, they had these orange silicone keyboard covers that had no letters for the older students to practice keyboarding

43 Honors Society
44 Gross School Food

They melt plastic on their mac-and-cheese, and use poop from the toilets on hamburgers. No joke!

They tell you to eat healthy and only give you like one fruit or vegetable. I pack my own lunch now.

This is any school (except maybe pre-school), but still. - Anonymousxcxc

Your correct! Preschool is the best year for school food. I miss preschool so much... - cosmo

My school has 10/10 food I LOVE IT - XYZeed

45 Teachers Giving Inaccurate Instructions

This has to be the worst



46 New Bad Teachers
47 Pranks in the bathroom

Pranks in the bathroom aren't terrible - Okay let me start again. When you, yourself, pull pranks in the bathroom they aren't terrible. They're hilarious. I have been a witness of my friend playing with matches in the bathroom and he accidently set the toilet roll on fire. We set it out but it was exceedingly funny for the rest of the day.

Kids throw water on each other

48 6th graders irritate/bother you

I am a 6th Grader and the reason 6th graders bother you is because 7th graders act like they are all that even though the just graduated

When I was in 7th Grade, every single 6th grader curses at me (such as the f word a lot), bothers me, almost attacks me and call me bullcrapping names.

49 Toilet Paper Hanging from Stall to Stall
50 Censorship

And I thought 6th grade was overly censored oh my god is 7th grade meant to be a real grade even
