Top 10 Most Boring Subjects in School

The Top Ten
1 Math

Maths may be tedious for a variety of reasons. Among the most prevalent are:

1. It can be challenging. Math often requires abstract thinking and problem-solving skills, which can be difficult for some people.

2. It can get monotonous. Math problems often involve repeating the same processes, which can become tiresome, especially for those who learn best through hands-on activities.

3. It may seem irrelevant. Many people may not understand how maths applies to their daily lives, making it difficult to stay motivated and engaged.

4. It can be boring to learn. Some maths teachers use traditional methods of instruction, such as lecturing and drilling students on problems. This can make maths seem dull and uninteresting.

I don't understand the point of advanced/secondary school maths. What's the point of learning the rotation of a triangle? All you need to know is how to work with money and times tables up to 12x12, at most. Sometimes, we get 10+ homework pieces for a test which literally has no effect on anything in the future. Elementary school maths was okay, but then came rotations of shapes, algebra, and factorials. Literally, there is no point to them at all. Who thought it was a good idea to mix the alphabet with maths? It's the same story with rotating shapes. Who cares about what a shape looks like when it's rotated? It doesn't help that my teacher doesn't have a clue about what to do either. He/She genuinely just goes on his/her iPad and goes on bootsale apps, while making us work in silence. In short, secondary school maths is just horrendous and a complete waste of time.

2 P.E.

P.E. ruined the second half of my sixth grade. We had to take a test on P.E., which I find a waste of time. I really wish the lockers had stalls so kids wouldn't get tortured, and they should have keys instead of locks. The locker room says Fun and Fitness, but the main class screams Dull and Inactive. We don't need lectures about the game. Science is right. P.E. does not provide adequate exercise. I had a hard time liking anyone who said Computers are not as good. We came here for fun and fitness. What a ripoff of a class. At least Computers follows its namesake and has free time for downloaded games. By breaking the vow of its motto at my school, P.E. wastes an entire class period. If I ran the system, it would be Computers all year for each grade.

I don't get how people like this! People purposely crush me because apparently they didn't see me. Someone said they thought I was a bush because I didn't move! HOW? I'm not green and leafy! You don't see a very tall bush with hair every day!

The teacher always yells at me for being too slow, being too fast, or being too cowardly! She thinks I'm born already knowing how to play soccer! The teacher compares stronger people to me because they did better than I did, and she rubs it in my face about how I need to do better and how Boom'Quisha did so much better than me.

It's freezing in there, and she gets mad when I bring a small jacket. She says to put it on her desk, like she's confiscating my phone. Whenever I wear boots and forget my shoes in the winter, she throws a fit and yells at me, saying, "Oh, you know better! Boots are so bad in physical education, blah blah BLAH! Go sit! BLAH!" Last time we went, she was doing Just Dance with everyone and said I don't get to play. I have to fill out some packet because I was late!

Let me know if you have any other blocks of text you want me to polish!

3 Religious Studies

It is so boring... I go to a Catholic school because my family is Catholic, but I'm an atheist! I don't care about any of this biblical stuff and I'm never going to use it. I'm not trying to offend people. I respect your religion, but that doesn't mean I want to memorize the entire Bible.

At least go to a church or temple or whatever other religious places there are out there. But to squash it into the worst part of childhood? At least somebody will ditch school because they hate sitting in a chair, listening to useless junk that nobody needs.

I am religious myself, but I'm sure none of us will use this religion stuff from school in the future. We may be part of a religion, but I'm sure we'll look for jobs that have inspired us for ages. I don't think we'll want to be a priest or something.

4 English

These are things that are pointless to learn in English:

1. Reading. Seriously? If you can't read, you deserve to die.
2. Poetry. You can become a singer or a poet if you are good at poetry. However, the chances of that happening are next to nothing.
3. Synonyms. Are you kidding me? Why is there more than one word for the same definition? The opposite is just as stupid.
4. "Big" words. They are the most pointless things to learn ever! Why? Just why? So you can sound smarter? Can't you just use normal words? It's so dumb!
5. Writing stories. I don't want to be an author when I grow up, so why do we write stories? To amuse the teachers?

English is not pointless, though. It is very important for communication and for a job. It is just so boring!

I used to love English in primary school because we got to create our own stories, reviews, articles, etc. Then GCSE came, and pretty much the entire course focused on analysing stories from Shakespeare and 19th-century authors, as well as receiving the dreaded anthology that every student in England will get at some point. Nothing exciting, useful, or interesting in the slightest. All we do is analyse quotes!

Luckily, creative writing is still part of the course (something I like, but some may not), but we spend about 0.5% of our English lessons doing it. The rest is literally just analysing! There's no freedom to create your own stuff, just examining others' works in an ancient form of our language. Terrible! Only physics surpasses this subject in awfulness. I would choose maths over it any day.

5 Spelling

Whenever I enter this class and my teacher says, "Today we will spell toxic, phobia, mass, atmosphere, and why. Now, anyone who isn't familiar with any of these words, please raise your hand," half the class's hands shoot up! It's spelling! Once, I almost asked, "Is this how you get an A+ as a teacher, Mrs. Morris? Being above and beyond boring?"

I just sit at my desk and daydream. It gets me in trouble sometimes, but it helps pass the time. Tests are especially boring. I mean, that's just pressuring you about something you already know, and that's likely to make you forget it!

I'm great at spelling. I'm in year four but at a year seven level, and my teacher gives me year one words. Like, what?!

6 Science

It's unnecessarily hard. They teach us invaluable life skills which we won't even consider using in life. They should teach us more important stuff. Maybe kids will be interested in science, rather than the study of tectonic plates and cell membranes.

Science is the worst. My teacher is so strict, and science is just plain boring. Why would we have to memorize the periodic table if we won't use it? It's just the most boring subject of all time.

I never have and never will like the boredom, the uselessness of science unless you want to be a scientist. If not, it's just the very worst and hardest boring subject ever!

7 Sex Education

They teach us this in fourth grade, and we have to label our privates on worksheets. It's disturbing and encourages teen pregnancy. I fall asleep, and the teacher doesn't even notice. In fifth grade, I cried in that class.

It may be boring but it's extremely important because it teaches you how to avoid STDs, use protection, and give consent.

Why do they even have this class? It's not like we don't know about it anyway.

8 Spanish

My teacher is so mean, and she is always saying we are doing something wrong, even if we just give a small yawn from being tired. Not only that, but she never actually teaches us. She just gives us a sheet and expects us to know all the answers. She is by far my least favorite teacher.

I hate languages because they're SUPER boring, and not everyone is going to France or Spain! Plus, English is the most well-known language. Aren't there people there that speak English? If there were no foreign language classes at school, it would be MUCH easier.

Who needs to learn another language when they are in their OWN country? Like seriously, do English Americans need to learn Spanish aside from their own language? Boring and bad, repetitive and stupid!

9 Algebra

I'm taking Algebra as an eighth grader, and I'm thinking about hurdling myself out of that window. It's so simple and boring. It's in no way difficult. I understand the help in learning Algebra. I just wish it was taught twice as fast.

Believe it or not, but algebra is not math. Math is the simple 16x12, but algebra takes that and demoralizes it. It's so complex that it's hard, yet so simple that it's boring. The WORST SUBJECT EVER.

It sucks as much as golf.

10 French

Every time I look at my timetable and see that I have French the next day, I feel like I want to kill myself. I find it so boring and hard, and most of the teachers at our school who teach French are mean as hell. To be honest, though, I hate languages in general, not just French. If they didn't teach languages, I'd actually be happy going to school. I would have no worries or problems.

I live in Canada, where we have to do French in school. I think that French is the most boring subject ever! Everything I have learned is pretty much useless, and I honestly wish it was not in the curriculum.

Why the hell do I need to learn French? It's kind of a boring language to learn (No offense to French people). But really, I would prefer to learn German or Italian.

The Contenders
11 American History

I dislike how people, especially teachers, perceive the quote, "Those who forget history are bound to repeat it." The quote refers to a general understanding of history, not memorizing useless facts. I don't care about when the AFL was founded or what Rockefeller did in 1920. What matters to me is the big picture, which history teachers almost never teach, focusing instead only on the useless facts.

My philosophy is that history is like a set of science experiments. Different ideologies are tried and tested. We aim to find out how to create the best possible society by looking at what worked and didn't work in the past (studying history) and using common sense and logic to determine the best path. We need a combination of both to be successful. However, history classes tend to neglect the latter.

The end goal of life is to create an environment where everyone is, ideally, happy. Although it's almost impossible to ensure universal happiness, the goal is to get as close as possible. History classes, in my opinion, don't cover this at all. The specific times, dates, and people are trivial matters. What's important is understanding the what, why, and how, and applying history to the current situation.

12 Health

This should be number one. It beats English class in my mind. Now we're talking about a class with complete boredom. Some people might say that this class might be useful in some ways, but that's not how I find it.

Honestly, I'd prefer it if this was optional. I don't plan to be a doctor or something like that in the future.

Wellness is not really that great. Math is way better.

13 Social Studies

So, in fifth grade, we learned about the California Gold Rush. We read Patty Reed's Doll, and they took out the part where everybody started to eat each other to make it "kid-friendly." That's why history is boring. They take literally everything interesting out.

I liked the history parts, but I don't like the sociology parts, or the economy parts, and I don't like the geography either. It's too boring that many people in my class snooze during social studies and they fake illnesses during math.

Social Studies is that subject that annoys you. The teachers give you those projects that are useless and harmful, and you need to listen to them talking about all those boring things.

14 Chemistry

I dropped Chemistry for Physics. I hated it! It's just so complicated and incredibly dull. I have no idea how anyone can find it interesting, apart from the experiments, which are admittedly quite fun, but a pain in the ass to write about and study.

Unbearable... I fell asleep during my first chemistry class... Pretty embarrassing! Do not take chemistry. No matter what your siblings tell you. You will not last.

Because, seriously... I couldn't care less about atoms and all that crap. I think it's just a waste of my youth.

15 Government

I never pay attention in this class. How about instead of teaching the government's rights, teach their wrongs? I don't want to learn about how some idiot said, "Hey, let's spy on people while stealing their money for our own cause instead of using it to help the poor and homeless. While we're at it, let's oppress minorities!"

Government is by far the worst subject of them all. I don't need to learn how to become a lawyer, and US government, in general, just bores me. It was a hard-to-understand class sometimes.

Oh dear. I couldn't even try to pay attention in this class. Good thing it was middle school. If I had to take this class in high school or college, I would not be able to bear it.

16 Music

It can be fun SOMETIMES. I just wish it was always fun because at my school, we sit there every two weeks. For the first 10 minutes, we are on the carpet, watching videos with facts that so many people already know about!

Music is so boring, and at my school, all you do in music is sit there. And she makes us memorize all these stupid songs we don't need to know, and she makes us do stupid concerts throughout the year. So if you only have 1 concert a YEAR, you're just lucky.

Music sucks in my school because all our music teacher does is make us sing songs and do one or two concerts a school year. And if you hate singing, lip sync.

17 Chorus

So boring, mandatory at my school. When are we ever going to even use this in life?

It is boring because the teacher is like, "Do this and do that" all the time! And you have to sing a lot.

This should not even be a subject.

18 Geometry

I'm currently in my boring 6th period geometry class right now. I'm on this site to get rid of my boredom. Geometry sucks and is useless for most people.

The math I'm in right now that is painfully boring and uninteresting, not to mention USELESS.

This should be higher.

19 Drama

I recommend not to be in the field of Drama. It is useless and nothing to study. Only writing a script, reading a story, acting out a short drama. Actors earn a lot of money, but their minds are like empty vessels. They only think about their fame and the money they have.

No. Just no. Why isn't this on top? I find Math much more fun (or maybe that's because our teacher is fun too).

20 Metal Work
21 Marketing
22 British History

It's just like American history... It has got nothing to do with your career... Bogus and useless dates and descriptions... All trash, horrific, and horrendous.

Completely boring and useless, just about these stupid kings that beheaded people at the drop of a hat.

Like, I'm not even British!

23 Woodshop
24 Statistics

The subject is good, but the way teachers teach it is boring.
