Top Ten Worst School Subjects

The Top Ten


Math itself was alright... Then ALGEBRA came. Letters are for the alphabet, not math problems! Even worse if you got a bad teacher.

Maths is awful. Like, thanks I know how to calculate the angles of a triangle. How will that help me in life.

Really people... Really... It actually saddens me that everyone here seems to think math is a useless subject. I am years beyond highschool and I still use all of the material. Yes, I use the angles of a triangle quite frequently. Yes, I use algebra VERY often. Yes, trig comes up nearly every day. I'm sorry if your teachers sucked, but being taught is a two person process. They teach, you learn. If they don't teach then you take the initiative and LEARN by yourself. You're expected to get an education in spite of the teachers.

Good for you that you use algebra. But that doesn't mean that everyone does

I disagree. People doesn't like it because it confusing, boring, and hard ( my sister hates math and she got 62% on finals. That's the reason why she fail Algebra 2) I very love Math! It very easy! It is my favorite subject and the only subject I am very good at. Math should be in #1 list of Top 10 best subject. By the way, math is the most useful subject. You use math for everything. If you are super bad at math, your future might be ruin for example you are very good at science and want to be scientist. But you can't be a scientist if you are super bad at math.


1. If the diameter of a circle is 3.9 feet, what is the area of a circle

2. 6y +334e + 9y=

3. what is the square root of 49
4. what is 8(9 plus 50-97)
5. what is the first 10 digit of pi

I understand you need math in life, and it is highly important to learn. But it is really hard to make it interesting. I like it more now because I understand it more than I used to, and I understand its importance. But I find myself falling asleep most of the time.


I don't understand PE at all-I know exercise heightens academic performance and all that science, but it's the one class I am continuously dreading. If anything, it makes me dread school-why, just why would you suck the fun out of school by making me do stuff I hate (ex. Moving), I swear I love every other subject! Just that being embarrassed and a dead weight on a team is not my idea of fun! Also, every year they make you run a mile or do a push up, sit up, running test-and even if you're below the healthy fitness zone (which I am in running-oops! ) THEY NEVER DO ANYTHING TO GET YOU IN SHAPE. They evaluate you, embarrass you, compare you to fitter people, and then offer no tips, no encouragement, and no way to actually get healthier. If they wanted to make me fitter and healthier-then why don't they tell me how to?

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm not the most athletic person, but I'm not the worst. But for some reason, I always seem like dead weight for people to pull. And it never actually gets me in shape at all, it just makes me feel more embarrassed about my low physical activity.

It's only bad if your bad at it, which I am... What irritates me is when people don't understand why some people don't enjoy sport! And when I run away from the ball when it comes towards me, and people are like: WHY ARE you SCARED OF THE BALL?!?!?!?

Come on! Unless you're going to be a sportsman/sportswoman, why have we got to do this? It won't help us in our future! I wanna be a scientific, an running behind a ball won't have repercussion in my future!

And some people are the exact opposite of you and want to be a athlete and not do anything scientific. Knowing what's inside a frog won't have any repercussion in my future

I actually have the worst grade in Math, and I take pride in that. However, PE sucks mainly due to how nonathletic I am. I'm actually in great shape, I just can't catch balls or aim. However, my PE "coach" hates how I don't play sports, and he alienates the bad players from the good players. I gathered a long list of evidence of him bullying unathletic kids, and an investigation was launched. And he got sacked. Serves him right.

Language Arts

I got a 55% on a reading comprehension test based on a novel. Passed but I hate it. My original most hated subject used to be Social Studies but I realized it's not getting hard but seriously, what's worse than stupid history or politics? Grammar, sentence fluency, creativity for a story, essays, little details in a book, researching, figurative languages and the worst... writing quality! Math is easier for me because it's literally all about methods and sometimes, I don't have to rely on my calculator. I find it so funny many people are bashing on math because it's about numbers but compare it to making sentences. I hate summarizing so much, I can't rephrase it to words on my own and when I have to research, I have to avoid plagiarism!

If the point of a book is to convey a message, what is the point of concealing the message with literary nonsense? This isn't a game of hide and seek. If the common man can't understand what you are trying to say after 1 maybe 2 times of reading it, that doesn't make you a literary genius. It makes you someone who is incompetent at conveying information. Don't get me wrong. I love really good metaphors and analogies and whatnot. But when I have to spend minutes just to interpret the full meaning of line, then it's a bad line (or I'm a retard).

I've known hot to read since I was 3, why do I still need to learn more about it?

Also, earth to teachers: No one, and I mean NO ONE, sits there adding symbolism and other literary every 5 lines. If you were to do that, a novel would take a lifetime to complete. So stop over analyzing past what the author intended. Obviously, when questioned, an author will pretend that everything was on purpose because it makes them look better. But that is physically impossible. Read a book. Analyze a little. Move on.


I like most school, but algebra is EVIL!

What to the person who invented algebra. How could someone create something so evil, bad, outrageous that destroys brain cells! Algebra should be wiped of the whole universe! It should be a punishment for ultimate criminals, not sweet and harmless children! Boo, get lost algebra, no one wants you

Multiplication: No problem. Divisions: No problem. Negative divisions with decimals: No problem. Algebra I: Insane. I was failing the class with a 41 until I decided to just deal with it.

Algebra, the subject that ruins a kid hope for school


Come on guys, history isn't that bad.

History is taught horribly.

They spend too much time giving homework and projects that don't help at all. History is the type of subject where all you do is memorize facts. Yet teachers force you to do unnecessary work that does nothing but weakens your understanding of the subject. Here is an example. There's no need for a teacher to assign notes on a section. Science usually assigns reading, but notes are not required. There will be a quiz or test on the material, so your funeral if you don't read. The individual can choose how to study. I actually do worse when taking notes than when not because I'm more focused in the actual material rather than filling up the paper. So I read the chapter in science and understand it. However, there really isn't homework history teachers can assign. History is almost always memorize a bunch of facts, so it is difficult to test critical thinking and application skills. Therefore, they assign notes just for the sake of assigning homework. ...more

History is the worst thing on Earth. Tons of dates and names and titles are shoved down your throats, and you're expected to have remembered everything at the end of the day. Memorizing every single President is a huge waste of time in my opinion. The countless acts and tariffs are so hard to remember what they were for. I realize the whole "Don't repeat history" thing, but I've never laid awake at night deciding to become an all powerful dictator who wants to hurt everybody on Earth. It's quite a boring subject most of the time, and the projects have nothing to do with anything.

My friend is obsessed with Russian history and Russia and surprisingly, he is the only one in his class who likes this subject. I also like this subject. In 5th grade, I got to write a story about the ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. We also watched Mulan and Hercules in class because we were learning about Ancient China and Ancient Greece. In 6th grade, I made a totem pole. In 7th and 8th grade, I made some diorama projects using a pizza box based on Canada's history.


I hate this subject so damn much! We got a semester exam recently and I got a 52%. Now my parents blame me for failing instead of being it obvious that it was the teacher's fault. My geometry teacher can't teach at all. She just calls people on the phone and wait for the call back so she can continue teaching. The worst part of it is she expects us to pass the test even though the entire class is failing! Now this is risking my chances for getting a cell phone because I want one and my dad says I have to get a B to get it. If I get anything possibly lower, I'm totally blaming the teacher!

I can totally relate. My school is supposed to be one of the best math schools in the district, yet all the math teachers suck there. And I got stuck with the worst of them all, oh my god, I can't put up with it any longer. Now I can perfectly see the reason why some high schoolers are dropouts. Shoving all this gibberish down our throats won't pay off in the future unless you're planning on being one of these teachers. This is why I lost all respect in math teachers. They're all the same: boring, monotone robots who give lectures 24/7. Their asses should be fired

I hate it so much! I only have an A- in Geometry because I get full credit for doing the homework and trying, but it's still the most confusing thing ever! I'm basically dyslexic when it comes to Geometry. It's just a ton of numerical squiggles to me.

Geometry is SO EXHAUSTING. Especially since my teacher to me is too strict to tell me the basics. And now, ever since school started, I decided to glare at my teacher in my mind for being too strict to me about GEOMETRY!


Science itself isn't that bad, It's just the fact that EVERY TEACHER has anger management problems. I have seriously never had a science teacher who HASNT disliked me or yelled at me at least once a week, but what do I know.

Because it mixes my 3rd favorite subject math with the worst subject mostly at physics

I despise Geology and Biology. I can't memorize everything and it's not very helpful for a future author. My teacher says Biology would be "useful" for writing murder mysteries and stuff. Who said I'm going to write murder mysteries?! I just want to write science fiction novels because Astronomy ids the only interesting kind of science so far. Maybe next year when I start Chemistry, I'll like it.

Oh my god I am in the exact same situation as you. Aspiring fantasy writer, but "OH NO JUNIPER YOU DIDN'T DO THIS STEP OF THE LAB RIGHT! LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE TO START OVER NOW! "
My teacher is not suited for her job. She is stern-faced, (and I'm not kidding about this) except for when she is punishing someone. She gets a ' Umbridge face. ' UMBRIDGE - Juniper

Science is the worst especially if you get a really bad teacher

Science, particularly when math is involved can be extremely difficult for most people. I used to think science was the easiest class when it was purely conceptual, but when I had to take chemistry and physics and the brutal math got involved, that's when you find out what science really is. - Gods-Judgement

Foreign Language

It's not like I'm moving to France or whatever.

Serves no purpose in my opinion. Besides, when will you ever talk to a French or Spanish Person?

In my old school when you were in 5th grade and higher you were forced to learn 2 languages. Different Country. I learned french and hindi. I forgot them already, and it's only been like a year since I learned them.

To be honest, this wouldn't have been a bad subject if the french teachers here in Canada were actually good. I had 4 teachers over the course of 6 years and I've actually learned french from this really good teacher, then I moved schools and I forgot everything I learned because of how bad the french teacher was.over 6 years you feel like you aren't getting progress from this


I love writing stories! But then my wrist starts hurting because if my evil pencils...

This was worse when they made you handwrite everything. My handwriting is horrible, and I'd get bad grades on everything because my teacher could barely read it. Typing makes stuff way easier, but essays are awful any way you do it. Let us write want, people!

I love writing but the only thing I hate is it hurts your hand

I don't understand why we will need this in life. Half of the kids in my class never know what to write when we have to write a paragraph or more literally every day.


I'm in 8th Grade now and we had to take it last year in 7TH GRADE! I don't get why we needed to learn such a hard topic in middle school. I didn't even understand a single thing! How do they expect us to know this in middle school?! We should take biology in high school and not middle school.

Well I HATe this, except microbiology. Well because you need to know perfect definition, eutrophication is the process where... And lake chocked. Even if you write the spelling of chocked wrong, you get no marks, even if rest is correct (the... Section )

Biology makes me think why the suicide level is so low. (don't do bio kids)

If you don't understand one thing, you won't undertand anything!

The Contenders


Oh. My. God. In my old school (I've moved to a better one now) we had a dance lesson every fortnight. Our teacher was cranky and old, and she had about THREE SONGS (really annoying ones) on her iPod and we had to do stupid dances as a warm-up, walk around and do stupid stuff like retarded hand gestures, and we had to compose a dance. Dance is so stupid! And I'm shy, so a dance lesson is like hell for me!

The teacher that you're describing sounds exactly like the teacher I have now in my dance class. - JaysTop10List

If you like to dance then take dance lessons, nobody liked this at all, this is just you embarassing yourself in front of the class for 10 minuetes

Too much movement!
and my dad forces me to go for extra classes.

God... I hated this! It wasn't a subject, more of a topic in pe. Good thing we only did in year 7 (usa: 6th grade, I think :/) Anyway, since gangnam style was the main craze at that time, the teacher put gangnam style on REPEAT and we had to dance to it like 200 times. I hate that song as well and didn't want t hear it for a LONG time after that. That's why I hate this topic a lot!


I just called this lesson "Sleep". So boring, especially with a bible bashing teacher telling me I'll go to hell.

I'm an atheist. We shouldn't have this subject.

Why do we need to learn this.
to learn how to discriminate or something?

You should be allowed to choose if you want to persevere in this field or not it should be a choice if you want to learn about religion


This is a school subject? Laugh out loud!

The teacher makes you type about 40 mph and use both hands! How are people supposed to do that? It makes NO sense!

The fastest way to type is with 2 fingers which my WPM with 2 fingers is 58. But NO the teachers say that's the wrong way to type. They forcefully put your hands on the standard keys and you're just super slow like that. I mean when I type like that my speed is 23. In fact the essays and everything are timed and you have to be faster than a certain amount of WPM. Intact the smartest kid I know who makes straight A's on every other subject but typing cause he's a bit slow at typing.

I only use 2 fingers on each of my hands to type and I type really quickly, but typing with all of my fingers slows me down.

Computer Science

Bleh. So hard. Coding? Buncha numbers and letters, looks like fowl language.

Most revolting subject I've ever taken. COMPLETELY USELESS

Computer science is so fun.

I puke when I open the text book


Imagine taking the song "baby" and analizing every single verse, THAT how bad and boring the subject is!

I used to always do super well or super bad (barely pass/fail). Usually super bad. So I did a summer reading program. My book was the fellowship of the rings. I got 6:8 on all of the quizzes but the last one when I did very bad but I was sick with bronchitis when I took it. Part of literature that is important is comprehending what you read and my teacher told me to read 3 times and I never did that. Looking back I probably should have done that because the more you read something the better you comprehend it. At my school that I went to you could correct stuff but most schools are not like that so it is best to take your time and maybe even check your work once done. I hope this helps.

They make us read a ton of stupid and boring old books, make sure we take notes on every dang page, then answer a ton of confusing questions that don't make any sense.

Literature is super hard!


I remeber how humiliating it was to perform in front of everyone and not know how to blow the godamn horn. I had to do that once a month. This is terrible, the only thing I got from this was anxiety

My music teacher, I'll call her Ms. Smith (Just in case she's reading this) She's an extremely strict and harsh lady who really cares about her music, but what's the point? I'm in Grade 9 and I have to sing songs probably meant for primary-aged kids. Not to mention we use broken old instruments, one time I screwed up while we were using bongos and guess what? I had to write in lined-paper over and over again "I will follow the rules" on both sides, and that's why I'm moving high schools.

I'm in 6th grade and we have to sing stupid baby songs instead of playing instruments

One of my Music teachers was a witch. She even looked like one. Thankfully, she left. Now, I have a really pale Music teacher who is basically a vampire. He's no better than my past Music teacher.


My physics teacher barely taught anything in 10th grade. Thank god I only had it for a semester, I had to get the hell out of there.

Bounce this, bounce that. Wait. What? Bounce what? Measure what?!? My glob. I’m gonna fail this!

I hate physics so much, I am so bad at it and if I won't learn a single thing I will be bad at it forever. It's very hard and difficult, I also find it boring but that's probably because of my teacher

Physics is awesome and interesting.

Social Studies

Worst subject ever. I almost fell asleep in social studies today! (Not an expression, I literally almost did! )


I hate the class. They give us words they don't explain to us and make us do a tone of questions

I mean it would make sense if people who spoke other languages like French, German, Spanish, and Korean would take this class. As for people who speak English already, why do they have to take this class? Is it so they speak English better? They can already speak that. Besides, what good will English classes do for those that already speak the language? If you're a person who DOESN'T speak English, GO AHEAD TAKE IT! This class is for you!

exactly, we don't need English since we already know English. Like they are trying to make us speak using big words. If we can already speak casually its done. Everyone speak casually so its normal. Even the homework are like making us read stuff like not everyone likes reading. English is just useless for people who are fluent in english - Maljh

Why isn't this higher? Why do we need to learn about Shakespeare or novels, like we already know how to speak it.

I already know the language.


I like to draw, but I do not like it when the teacher wants the art done THEIR way. Isn't art about being creative with your ideas? I know Van Gogh didn't do what the teacher told him...

it is a garbage lesson that is a big waste of time. I want to live my life

What's the point of this? This is just here to fill up space so that school wasen't an hour shorter. You like drawing? Cool, why some people don't.

I am a woman my name is dima
i want to get a life right now-a
i want to burn art to the ground-a

Home Economics

I think cooking is very fun. Why is this one so high especially with no comments.

Cooking is useful. But we only make things like cakes. Teach us how to make healthy foods too. Luckily my mom taught me.

This is actually a kind of useful subject

"Ouch! My fingers! "


You thought Algebra was bad? Ha, welcome to calculus.

My brain will explode next time I hear that word!

Oh my god... Calculus? I would rather be counting to 1 trillion and the teacher beside me.

This subject is the living in carnation of hell you thought algebra was bad ha


We don't care about this crap!

Compared to math this is a living hell

We get tablets but it's so damn stupid.

Think this subject is really boring


It is basically making newspapers or yearbooks! We have a newspaper club for a use!

This is the dumbest subject ever!

Business Studies

This subject is a torture.

That's for college or something!
