Ages


#1

Ok im from australia and i have no clue on wat age a freshman, etc. are. Can someone please tell me?


#2

a freshman is a first year student, sophomore 2nd, junior 3rd, senior 4th. What gets confusing is that this applies to both high school and college.

A freshmen in highschool is 14 turning 15, and college would be about 18.


#3

I just didnt no wat age they were.

Thanks


#4

#5

Lmao raggin on the Americans huh?

Were the smart ones, Year 9 Hazing just doesn’t have the same ring to it as Freshman Hazing… theres a dreaded phrase.


#6

hha we call it gummering


#7

I have my own name for it… Hell


#8

Actually the ages vary a bit more than that. Many HS freshman are 15 going on 16 and they have a significant advantage over the younger ones if the physiological ages match up with the chronological ages.


#9

wow
here in alberta we call gummering something else, haha.
In canada we call it Grade 9.
Or Grade 9 hazing.
