5. Like dodgeball, for example. Oh dodgeball, how we loathe you.

6. Getting a love note intercepted by your teacher and read out in class.

7. Realising parent’s evening is around the corner and they don’t know you’ve failed your exams yet.

8. Anytime your parents have to be on the premises is terrifying, let's be honest.

9. Eating too many onions with lunch, you have no chewing gum and it’s time for a group exercise in science. What if everyone can smell your breath?

10. Finding out your skirt is tucked into your tights after a rushed toilet trip.

11. Pushing your chair back and having it make a strange sound. Everyone’s going to think you farted. Oh help!

12. Having a massive exam in the morning and only remembering hours before bed.


But let's be honest, who doesn't do that?
