    I learnt heaps too. All of what FearlessLeader said, plus a good deal of German and French (enough to get me by when I'm travelling in Europe), some Latin, and basic science/ maths/ history/ geography, English grammar, etc. I also discovered a love of English Lit and Drama.

    Without learning anything it would have been impossible to go on to college and uni!

    For those who learned nothing, did you go on to uni? I can't imagine how hard uni must have been if you didn't learn any of these things in high school.

    I assume I must have learnt most of these things by osmosis because I thrived at Uni. But I can't recall actually learning any of it.

    That's a lie. I didn't learn time management even by osmosis.

    I'm guessing you must have learnt some things then...

    I think it would be difficult to get the grades to get in to uni without knowing anything at all!

    I guess now looking back it felt like such a waste of 5 years. I felt like I could have been doing a tafe course age 14. But to get into uni straight away you are made to stay

    I think you forget like 90% of what you learn at school anyway. I can't remember what I learned really but I'm sure there's more than I realise.

    I graduated year 12 in 1994, and I do think I learned a lot.

    I loved English, history, geography. I didn't like biology, but I did learn stuff.

    I went straight to uni from high school and I went to a public school from halfway through year 8.
