How serendipitous that a thread I posted 6 months ago has reopened whilst I was online, considering I only began using WP again several days ago, the chances of this occurring are quite remote!

In high school I excelled in science and English. I did good in most everything except math. But in college, I'm just kind of average.

Art, art history, philosophy, English, literary studies, critical theory, sociology - that sort of thing. Science I can understand tolerably well, but have no special facility in; math I have great respect for, but can't understand hardly at all. To be fair, I could probably do a better job of it if I really applied myself to it - I can usually appreciate mathematical concepts if they're explained to me on a conceptual level in lay terms - but I haven't got the kind of natural facility for it that I have for art, philosophy and the humanities.

Maths, Physics, History, Literature, Estonian. English is one of my worst subjects (although I get 5's or 4's, I do most of the tests intuitively, but in order to say that I'm truly good at a particular subject, I need to know all the details/rules that surround it) since all of my English teachers have been very unpleasant and I had no desire to study grammar by myself since. I decided to start studying grammar independently now. I'm aware that my grammar is terrible in comparison with other WP members, and well, I need to be much better at English than what I am now in order to succeed in Gymnasium

it depends what i'm 'focusing' on, though i get good grades in all of them. (which doesnt actually say anything, because my school refuses to realise that its course material is far too easy). i get consistent good marks in english, maths, physics, chemistry, biology, RS and psychology (although how much i write depends on how much i like/trust the teacher, and grades in english/art fluctuate mildly depending on whether or not the teacher likes my style). anything written/drawn is good with me, because im not a big fan of speaking unless im asking qestions and its the only way i can comfortably express myself.

I'm good at literature, business, band, history. I'm good at math if someone actually teaches me along with chemistry.

History and Physics are my top subjects in terms of my marks, with Math and Chemistry close behind. But Physics and Math are the ones which come the most intuitively to me. To be honest though, I do well at all of my subjects. Gym and art always gave me some trouble but in my school system they basically say that if you try then you get a good mark. English I loathe and is my lowest mark. My English teacher last year was excellent and I was able to get very good marks with her, but I still didn't much care for the subject. I do not like my teacher this year. She is sickeningly enthusiastic and never actually makes it clear what she wants us to do.

Hey all guys, hope you will be fine enough and enjoying your life to the fullest . In my school life I always got A+ grade in Maths , Physics and Chemistry subjects. Biology was on the second number . These were the subjects I also like in my college life as well. Thanks :)
