Worst Things About the 8th Grade


The Top Ten

1 Everyone is freaking out about high school

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

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

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

Was so annoying! I remember earlier this 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

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

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.

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

You may find out there fake

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 Bullies

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."

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

10 Your bodies start changing

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

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

The Newcomers

The Contenders

11 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.)

12 You get sweaty and awkward

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

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

True that lmao

14 Trying to decide what you'll do in high school
15 People give you crap for still liking 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 Boys get more annoying and immature

Ugh. Boys. LOL - dipperpinesfangirl618

Girls too. - Userguy44

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

17 Depression

Kill me please. 8th grade is too much.

18 Algebra

Dang that was hard

19 Two faced people

What this isn't even real

20 You consistently want to die

Isn't this similar to depression? - Userguy44

21 Walking, one-dimensional, bleach-blonde, valley girl stereotypes
22 Meals suck
23 No more finger painting or snack time

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

My middle school doesn't have any of those

24 The chance of farting in class

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

25 You become more self-conscious
26 All you want to do is leave middle school
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
