    When I was at school my favourite subjects were French and Music. Those were my two highest scoring subjects. I came top 10% in the state in French for my HSC. I'm a pretty creative person though so that's likely why I loved them.
    I enjoyed maths too. I did 3 unit. I wanted to do 4 unit but I couldn't do it on my own. They needed at least 3 people to run it and noone else felt they were smart enough for it.

    I always loved History that was it for me .. Live for learning about the past still watch History Channel Often as I can and believe the lessons we learn from the past always prepare us for the future and we can never repast the same mistakes but its more about Histories Characters for me Great Leaders , Great Minds etc Fascination stories , Ghandi, Mandela , Eisntein , Ford list goes on

    In high school my favorite subjects were mathematics and physics. I ran out of classes to take on these subjects, and so I ended up getting permission to take a class at a local college during my junior year and I spent most of my senior year taking classes in college. That's how I first became involved with computers. The college physics department had a department computer they used for nuclear physics computations that I got permission to use. This was long before the time it was possible to have a personal computer at home. I remember coding in native machine language entering programs directly onto the punch cards the physics computer used. If someone else came along and needed to use the computer, I set the program up so I could toggle a switch on the computer's console and the contents of the core memory of the computer would be punched out. Later on I could just read the cards back into memory and resume exactly where I last left off. So much different than today.

    My experience with French was a little different than yours, Renee. I hate subjects where I cannot figure out the answers using logic and basic facts I remember easily versus a lot of memorization. So science actually ruled for me by a mile. My favorite story was about a chemistry exam in high school. The teacher heard me say I hadn't read the material from the night before at the start of class, and figured he would finally get me. So he asked five questions, we wrote down our answers, and passed them to the person behind us to grade, and then report back to the teacher as each person's name was called. The teacher gave out so much background information in asking each question that I was able to figure out all of the answers. And I was the only one in the class that got 100% on that test. Made my day to have the last laugh.

    English I mostly didn't like that well either. But I did rather enjoy getting my English teacher in trouble once. Our class was broken up into different teams to each act out different scenes from Macbeth. I thought it would be cool if the apparitions appeared out of a cloud of mist, so I brought a few of my smoke bombs to school. Fellow students loved it. My English teacher not so much after she got called down to the principal's office.

    In college I continued with physics as a favorite subject. But my plans to major in physics morphed into a degree in computer science.

    I liked social studies. Then at uni, I took up Sociology and Psychology which I found quite interesting.

    Probably Maths, though tbh I hate school, sitting in a class room trying to cram things in to my brain didn't work well with me. I always learned better by doing.

    I guess the difference for me is that because I liked learning it so much, I didn't have to memorise it. I could just think in French and converse and it was like it was my first language. My teacher even said I would have scored highly in the spoken test because I could mimic her french accent to a T.

    I did computer science at uni too, but I hated it so I dropped out. Funny though as you talk about working things out with logic, I think the coding has changed my brain a bit in that way because when I am learning something new in one of my hobbies I have the teacher explain each move in logical order and if something doesn't fit or doesn't make sense I'm always going through it like I used to in my logic class in uni. #nerd

    I'm the type of person who learns better by doing too. I've been lifting weights for a few years now and started studying certificate in fitness and because I have already been doing it already, I get HDs in my assessments. For example when they ask questions like what are the stabilising muscles while doing standing calf raises, because I do those I know which muscles they are without even having to think about it.

    In relation to that, IMO these days a lot of jobs require qualifications whereas I think on the job experience is much more valuable.

    Lol, mine was biology, which is very strange because I usually don't like or better say don't have talent for, science.
    But in high school I was thrilled by biology, was studying it very easily and was giving a fast lectures to others who didn't prepare for a test. It was even my wish for university - to be a biology teacher
    Luckily, I applied for Law college, which I finished, but without any use for now

    Modern History/Geography.

    And also i very like our school library. They had a lot of books. Sometimes i sitting in library for several hours after lessons and read. I think this library gave me more, than lessons.

    I was obessed with computers in high school and took every computer related subject I could - computing, administration and mechatronics (basically programming robots).

    I'd watched a program about hacking and it really took my interest. I started collecting my friends logins and passwords, and changed the script on one of them to say something stupid when they logged in. It wasn't malicious, it was just for fun. But he told on me and i remember getting hauled out of English and had to sit with the IT techs and head of computing to show them how i'd done it, and if i showed them what I did , I wouldn't get in trouble. That was the most trouble I'd got into at school lol

    Did you know that the sumerian aliens (the annunaki) created man 300.000 years before Christ?

    My favourite was IT but also really liked Geography and the Technical subjects.

    Looking back though, I'm not sure I really enjoyed many others at all.

    I have a degree in Sociology and found it incredibly interesting and actually more useful than I'd have ever imagined!
