    Boys bunk school and play cricket and get home at the exact time as they "get".

    This is an account of my experience that what guys do during their school time.

    Boys bunk school and play cricket or wander here and there and get home at the exact time as they "get" or "would get" after attending school. (If they are suppose to reach home at 3 PM they would reach exactly at 3 PM as if they have returned from school.)

    Boys leave field when they realise it is time for school to over and in order to reach home at an exact time at what they usually reach after school.

    This is what we used to do when we were in the last two years of our school life 11th and 12th standard.

    Please check my sentences.

    Some boys would bunk off school and play cricket or wander here and there instead, and get but they still got home at the exact same time as they were supposed to. "get" or "would get" after attending school. ( If they are were supposed to reach get home at 3 PM after school, they would reach exactly get home at 3 PM as if they have returned had just come back from school.

    Those boys would leave the field where they were playing cricket to get home in time. when they realise it is time for school to over and in order to reach home at an exact time at what they usually reach after school.

    This is what we used to often do when we were in the last two years of our school - life 11th and 12th standards.

    Could you please help me with these sentences as well? Although you have given me the amended version of my sentences. But I was just wondering whether these sentences can be used or amended?

    Is it better to write 'This is what we often used to do...'?

    That sentence is, unfortunately, a disaster from start to finish. I have no idea what you are trying to say. Please try to explain it in a different way and give us the context in which you might want to use it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Boys stop playing when they realise that it is the time for the school to over (suppose its 2 PM and school overs at 2 PM daily). So at 2 PM they leave for their home in order to reach home at the same time at what they reach after attending school.

    The part above is still very unclear. Do you mean that they try to get home at the same time every day after school?
