Worst Things About the 8th Grade


The Top Ten

1 Everyone is freaking out about high school

Was so annoying! I remember earlier last year when everybody was all like "What high school are you going to? " I don't know! Like everyone besides me was so nervous about it, they needed to chill! - Gabriola

Luckily my mom is letting me continue 8th grade and go to high school next year.

Yep, even me since I'm in 8th grade currently. - Pegasister12

I cannot. imagine. how. 8th. grader.

2 Your teachers start rushing through lessons


3 You get so many projects and tests, you think you'll explode

There is too many projects I might get a bad grade

4 Your GPA, all of your school history, and all of your grades are sent to local high schools
5 Fearing you might end up going to a high school you don't want to go to

My school district only has one high school. Not much of a worry for me. - Turkeyasylum

My middle school is also a high school so I will stay there till college - AnonymousChick

6 Everyone is still a jerk and immature

I believe that this is the worst part of 8th grade. Most students don't care about the other things listed on this cite. They mostly gety poor grades and don't even try in school. But, there are those small minor groups of scholors that do care and associate themselves with some of these. Moth 8th graders, especially boys are so immature and inappropriate. It is not seen as much in girls but one thing that is definitely seen is the level of profanity that these students are speaking at. It is so bad and all of this is making the innocent minded students; non innocent! So, this is why number 6 is the worst part of 8th grade. Take it from me. I am an 8th grade boy. But, I am not like the others.

Unfortunately, I suffer this cataclysmic case, my peers are so annoying that I just want to get up and leave the world

Immature yes jerk no - Frouze

7 You and your friends start drifting apart

This is happening to me right now in 7th.I have only about 3 or 4 people I talk to regularly and most of my friends rarely talk to me to not at all.

You may find out there fake

Here is what happens when mostly the same people are forced to be together this much a day, this many days a week, for 9 years:
Best friends: go down in rank
Normal friends: mostly talk to other people
Acquaintances: Start getting annoying
Enemies: Become even worse

That starts in 7th Grade.

8 Fearing your friends might go to different high schools

I am kinda getting tired of some of my current friends. My best friends are mostly talking to other people, and some have completely turned against me. Well, that makes it kind of a good thing.

9 Knowing you'll go from the oldest grade back to the youngest grade

This is how it'll be for me, exept I was in sixth, going into seventh. - RockFashionista

I will just impress everyone in high school. (Linux, 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288, how to get past evil parents' restrictions, etc.)

10 Depression

Grade 8 is where all my depression started. And I blame my classmates and teachers who are ignoring me so they were traitors to me back then.

Sad all the time

Kill me please. 8th grade is too much.

The Contenders

11 Boys get more annoying and immature

Girls too. - Userguy44

Ugh. Boys. LOL - dipperpinesfangirl618

I’ve been going to school with the same boys and they are so annoying and immature I’m an 8th grader by the way and these boys just don’t act like 8th graders

12 The sudden realization that the teachers really don't care if you pass.


True that lmao

13 Trying to decide what you'll do in high school
14 Bullies

Not only with 8th grade. It can be in every grade. - Userguy44

Especially if they blackmail you for telling on them. I told a teacher that this girl was being extremely annoying, and she told the principal that I said "n," even though I didn't. Profanity is banned in my school. Also, any words that can make people feel bad and/or cannot make people feel good, are also banned. I almost got expelled until I got "witnesses."

15 People give you crap for still liking cartoons

I'm moving on to 8th grade, but my friends says that they still watch cartoons.

People: I like Pretty little liarsPeople: I like Doctor who (Which is actually a pretty rad show)People: I like orange is the new blackMe: ONWARD AOSHIMA! - dipperpinesfangirl618

16 Algebra

Fr though, I'm still taking it - poshypaige

Dang that was hard

17 You consistently want to die

Isn't this similar to depression? - Userguy44

18 Your bodies start changing

This can start as early as 5th grade...

My body just flat out turned against me! WHAT?! - dipperpinesfangirl618

19 You become more self-conscious
20 Meals suck
21 All you want to do is leave middle school
22 Two faced people

What this isn't even real

23 The chance of farting in class

"yeah I'm going in to 8th grade and that happened to me in 7th grade and I was literally dead entire week until next week, the next week was basically new start for me"

If this happened, u were legit dead inside for an entire week.

24 The deep thought that the person you like will never like you back

I went out with this boy, we broke up, and now I want him back. But he keeps saying he's working on "something new" so now everyday I think that he will never want me back and that he doesn't like me anymore.

25 Walking, one-dimensional, bleach-blonde, valley girl stereotypes
26 No more finger painting or snack time

My middle school doesn't have any of those

What middle school did you go to? We only used finger painting!

27 Bullying is at its peak

This one is extremely true. This is this year where you have the highest chance of either bullying someone or getting bullied by someone. But after this grade, bullying starts to reduce really fast for the rest of your school carrer. Thank God for that.

28 Nobody cares about your opinion
29 Foreign languages become way harder
30 Mood swings

Definitely. This was terrible, emotions are a mess.

31 Have more responsibility
32 You get sweaty and awkward

I thought this only happened to boys until I came to 8th grade. - dipperpinesfangirl618

33 Mood swings for sure
34 Boys will tell you they love you when it's not true
