Out of any of these which do you either suck at the most, or hate to death?

Personally I can't stand any form of maths. I'm good at chemistry (surprisingly), but I hate maths such as finanical expectation, correlation, etc. It's a pure nightmare for me.

I love English and wiriting essays, though. There's nothing better I enjoy in school than doing creatives, and reading litertaure and stuff in that area.

So what about the rest of you?

Love reading but I never really liked English classes. With one exception which was a set of classes in college where we read Greek and a bit of Roman literature (e.g. Homer, Ovid, Aristophanes, Herodotus, etc). Favorite classes are courses in analysis (a subfield of math) and in economics (esp courses in macroeconomics and public finance).

Maths because I was never really any good at it.

Classics because it was so boooooooooooooooooring.

I'm absolutely terrible at both Art and Music so probably those. Also, while I do like to read and can enjoy writing, English class can be a f*cking pain in the ass sometimes. Other than those I pretty much enjoy any of my other subjects, whether it's math, chemistry, history, philosophy, etc.

English. I hated how subjective grading was. Which is why I loved math. You have complete control over whether you were right or wrong.

I was great at Math until I had to do those stupid proofs and reasons.

F*ck that crap. I can't remember 100's of those.

Oh and I never really got Chemistry even though I got an A.

This is very true in university, especially when T.As do the marking.

I'm an IT major at college, was in business originally...hated that, swithced to IT thinking i'd be ripping apart PCs or doing tech support, what have you....no, I'm like 5 classes into web development doing html and php :roll: also had to take python, java, and javascript.....I'm really really dissatisfied with my college experience right now....not about to switch majors again either as a senior. I really don't get why I have so much code in my face....Computer Science is the major for those who like code, IT shouldn't be

I know exactly what you mean. I was taking Computer Information Systems and I got to the second year and realized once I started programming that CIS wasn't for me, so I tried to change the major but couldn't for some reason and I ended up finishing out my second year with some stupid random classes and then I haven't been back to college since.

It was just too tediously complicated for my tastes. I hated having to code, see there was a mistake, trying to fix it and only adding more mistakes. I was happy with my B in that class.

It's not on the list, but the only course I've ever had to drop so far in college is Biology. Luckily, I found out that I can fulfill that requirement for my degree plan by taking an upper-division Astronomy course as an alternative (which is good, because Math and Physics is my strong point). All of the other subjects on that list I'm fine with and enjoy, except for the last option, as I don't have to take any of those three courses.

Didn't like maths...it was useless stuff that I have up to this point never used.

However I really hated legal studies as the teacher had a droning voice and I felt as though it was a chore to stay awake in such a lifeless class.

oh another one.

not my worst class, passed it with a solid B. but i absolutely hated my communications class. i absolutely hate giving speeches in front of the class. funny, i had transfered from a different school about mid year, got put into a group that basically slacked off. i was new so i didnt know anyone. comepletely fvcked up my part of the group speech. then the rest of the speeches were by ourselves.

i dreaded my upcoming speeches as i figured id fail(teacherwas strict, your speech to to be at least 5 minutes long, couldnt wear shirts with writing on them, no fidgeting, etc.), but surprisingly i got an A on 2 of my speeches and a B on my last one.

so glad i never had to take that class more than once.

Advanced mathmatics, a class I just did not get. I tried something I wasn't prepared for and utterly failed at it. Wish I had chosen classics instead.

Back when I was high school, I remember we had to take a standardized state exam and there was an essay question about why metal boats can float in water despite the fact that metal is heavier than water.

I managed to boil a wordy essay down into a single word answer: magic.

So, it's the sciences that I'm probably the worst in, but it was literature classes that I hated the most.

I used to think it was math until I took an online college course. I learned that I just suck at listening to a teacher and taking notes which I did k-12. When I read the directions myself, I'm just fine. Aced the class.

Business and marketing go over my head though.

I'm actually quite surprised to see math so clearly dominating the results here. Based on my own school, I would have expected English or one of the sciences to pull ahead.
