FORMAL season has started in Maitland for 2017.

And, while the tradition was just as popular 10 years ago, the style was a little different.

Were you in the Class of 2007?

Would you wear what you wore back then at an event today?

Take a look back at the Maitland Mercury lift out from 2007, which documented the big moment for students across the city.

The Higher School Certificate was also a little different a decade ago, with pupils studying to receive their Universities Admission Index (UAI).

From 2009, the UAI was replaced with the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) in NSW.

Perhaps you were a more recent Higher School Certificate.
