    For the one who is able to achieve it.

    My favourite subjects in school were German (I´m really good in my native language. You wouldn´t think that because my English grammar is so lousy! ), Biology and History. I had always good or very grood grades in these subjects. I was above average in English and most other subjects as well.

    My least favourite subjects...oh oh. *g* Let´s say it this way: Everything where you have to calculate and use numerals! eyes::p
    So I was abysmal in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.

    I even managed to cheat during one exam in math without being detected (I haven´t cheated generally but I had absolutely no clue about this exam...) but I was too stupid to use the formulas on my crip properly.
    (Boys can be soooo harassing!!! : After they found out about my catastrophe they were twitting me for days...*sighs* ("How you can make sure that Julia writes a grade 6/F?? Just give her a cheat sheet with correct answers!" "Bwahaha" *giggle giggle giggle*... )

    Old school memories...I feel old! *g*

    Lol, if you were trying to alphabetize here you misplaced anthropology by putting it first.

    So true. I am so glad that I won't be having to take any long drawn-out seminars about Foucault, Derrida, Baudrillard, or any of the other "intellectual giants" of postmodernism!


    As for me:

    Loved

    *History (Middles Ages and Modern European, American, etc.)
    *Philosophy (Ancient, Enlightenment, 19th Century)
    *Drama (Shakespeare, Greek Tragedy, modern European)
    *Mathematics
    *Anthropology
    *Botany
    *Zoology

    Disliked

    *English (especially the mandatory courses)
    *Literature
    *Political Science (not much of a "science" IMO)

    Abhorred

    *Sociology (too riddled with Marxist rhetoric, liberal teachers, etc.)
    *Chemistry
    *Environmental Studies

    Favourite subjects in school were; Art, History, Geography, English, Science. I took two science subjects, Physics and chemistry, I wanted the study biology as well but I didn't have the option, so I did agricultural science instead (a science in name only), which contains a certain amount of biology. All in all, that was quite a lot of science.

    And then and did a degree in Art...


    Least favourite subjects were languages, I hated French, and to my shame, Irish, both were compulsory and that might have had something to do with my aversion to them. But also, I was just no good at languages.

    Maths. Well when I say I disliked maths, I mainly disliked algebra, I didn't hate geometry or mass and volume or the bit of maths that was contained in Physics because that kind of subject matter I could visual in my mind to certain extent and get a feel for it. Algebra however just seemed like a set of disembodied steps to be carried out and I considered that dull and I lacked the necessary insight to see the sense of it.

    I think I might have found calculus more interesting because of it's practical applications but I never progressed far enough to get on to study the calculus.

    Favourite/least favourite subjects

    Favourite subjects: German
    English
    Philosophy
    Ancient history
    Geology

    Least favourite; Mathematics


    So, how did I ever wind up as a geologist ? Sheer stubbornness. I wanted SO much to be a scientist. Yet, mathematics is the language of modern science and I was very bad at mathematics.

    I started as a chemistry major and it soon became apparent that I could never handle the mathematics required for physical chemistry. I transferred to a useless general science major, in which I was required to take courses in geology. There, I found a field of science which I enjoyed and which, in those days, required little mathematics.

    I would have been far better off and would have had a more successful career if I had gone into languages. I made the wrong choice and stubbornly stuck to it.

    Liked:

    Business Studies - teacher was a Thatcherite-Fascist war veteran
    History - fascinating, too much focus on the working classes during the Industrial Revolution but nevermind
    Physical Education - cricket, hockey, football
    Art - just make it up as you go along
    Cookery - pizza every week
    Information Technology - messing with computers, what's not to like
    Woodwork - drills, saws, fun
    Electronics - boring dull teacher, but soldering irons are fun


    Disliked:


    Biology - science is s***
    Physics - science is s***
    Chemistry - science is s***
    Drama - bitchy lesbian teachers
    French - humiliating
    Mathematics - bitchy teachers, boring
    Religious studies - study of brown people aka waste of time


    I am not very academic, I prefer things to exist at a rhetorical, shallow level, the world has too many eggheads as it is.

    My spelling ability was the best in my year BTW.

    Well, lets see...

    Dislikes:

    Contemporary Marxist Theory
    Microbiology
    Linguistics

    Likes:

    Scandinavian Literature, Folklore and Mythology
    Logic
    History
    English Literature -especially Poetry (except Milton)
    French (because I got a A on every test without studying, the rest of the class hated me because the grading was on a curve)

    I must have liked Psychology too, since I minored in it.

    I enjoyed: math, physics, chemistry, biology, philosophy, economics.

    I dislike English courses. The rules and conventions are rather arbitrary inventions of man, yet instructors worship them as if they were given to us by the gods.

    Favourites:
    Modern and Ancient History
    English
    Maths

    Least Favourites:
    Physics
    Chemistry (I only took both, since they were needed for my application to the military)
    English - well in particular one topic that was compulsory for all courses - multiculturalism : Of course we had to examine all it's 'benefits', and read about the experiences of poor, unfortunate refugees, and the wonderful contributions they can give to our country, if given the chance. eyes:

    After the end of year exam, some classmates and I held a ceremony and burnt our textbooks relating to this subject, we were so glad it was over.
