Writing a article about work experience for Year 9 students. Coursework :(
When referring to Year 9s, should there be an apostrophe between the 9 and s?

e.g.
Year 9's!
Year 9s!

Which one is correct?

HELP! LOL! WILL ADD REP FOR HELP!

An apostrophe is used when something is possessive/belonging to, as in 'That is Penny's coat', or when there are missing letters as in 'That's Penny's coat'. In your case, there would be no apostrophe, as neither situation suits.

No. If you are referring to more than one Y9 then it goes like one Y9, two Y9s, three Y9s and so on. So
Y9s - pay attention to me.


Y9s - you are going on work experience!
