Yeah...so far I've basically dozed during class and after at least a test in each class, I still have high A averages in everything. And I'm in all honors too...

But the OMGHUEGBOXZDEUCE60's 400$ price tag isn't. :?


So? My parents are giving it to me if I get good grades :P


Try being a college student who is completely financially independent. Then get back to me.


You try getting straight A's just to bring your GPA up to hit the minimum requierments to get honour roll!


Umm, high school is cake. Getting an A requires minimal effort in comparison to college. I got B's in high school and I skipped classes and goofed off when I went to class.


I don't know where you went to school, but dude, miss an assigntment, or be tardy, you get saturday school :x . And the teachers fail you. Oh and did you have a .04 GPA? I have to get honour roll! And if you even get ONE saturday school, you are NOt eligible for honour roll!

Like I said, high school is cake. The assignments are nothing in comparison. If you are having trouble with those, you shouldn't got to college.

That's a rather cynical look, SilentMartyr. The four years growth period within the high school years is supposed to prepare you for College, right?

Also, you're looking at it as one who's completed it and is used to a more difficult school life. Don't tell me that you've NEVER felt that any of the work in high school was challenging at the time...

No, not at all. The only challenging homework assignment I ever had was a 10 page research paper, and it was only challenging becaus eof the length. And I am a rather cynical person in general, so that doesn't surprise me at all.

Listen, I don't want to go to school. But I realize that I need to go to school to get anywhere in life. But that is kinda tough when your mind travels every 10 seconds (result from ADHD) so you can take you 10 page assignment and whoa, what was that?

*goes off to follow what caught my attention.*

Personally, I'd agree with SilentMartyr, though it depends on the school, I suppose. I only took 5 subjects in grade 12, which was the minimum to get into University. Physics wasn't all that hard for me, especially as the teacher rarely checked homework. Chemistry, likewise, was not that difficult, on the whole. Math 30 was probably the hardest, but I took it through correspondance, so that would account for it. Math 31 - that is calculus - was easier than 30. And English, though there were a few papers and essays, was never that hard for me. But, do keep in mind, I took Math 30 in grade 11, and had only half-days both semesters of Grade 12, so that might account for the easy feel.

Also, it might well have to do with the fact that Engineering is so much bloody harder than High School that the earlier is so much easier seeming. By fifth years its not nearly so hecktic anymore, but in first year - and second, and third - I had six courses a semester, with some four or five weekly assignments, which amounted to many hours of homework, and many late days at the University - something I was unaccustomed to in High School. I adapted really quickly, but nonetheless, I think that Engineering far overshadowed High School, in my mind. After all, it does have the reputation for being amongst the most stressful faculties.

Yeah, well you did. You just had to state that high school was a cake walk after I said my parents would give it to me when I got good grades. Guess what, NOBODY IS AS SMART AS YOU! If I accually succede, this will be the first time in my entire life that I have done something in school.
