Top Ten Worst School Subjects

The Top Ten


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

Its stereotypical but its true. According to Quora 7 to ten pupils say they do not like mathematics. Saying the following statements:
-Math is Easy
-Math is Fun
-Everybody likes Math
Are not true.I'm a 7th Grader and I still manage to get a decent acore on math and I don't like math.
One of the other things why people don't like math is because they find it too boring. Math for me is not a necessary subject unless you want to be a guy that wants to be an engineer or architect or a accountant. So if you want to bea CEO, author, director, singer, actor, president, senator, lawyer or something because the only possible thing you can do with math is to add or subtract something. So in conclusion nobody likes math

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.

It is my luck that in biology I have to use King Henry which is the metric System I am praying that I did it right. Oh and worst of all I have to do greater than less than and equal to and I have not done well with that since the day that I first day I learned. I am so bad at math but I will give my best and be slower than I used to be like I was in biology class today to make sure I do it right. I used to be able to correct stuff but now I can't do it is important that I give 100% into everything. Anyhow I realize that nothing is impossible even stuff that I have not understood since elementary school. God bless you guys and I hope you all have a great 2017-2018 school year.


Why does everyone hate PE so much? It’s a fun subject that makes you get out and exercise instead of just sitting around in classrooms. I can admit that some sports are boring though. (eg. Golf, Athletics, Volleyball)

Maths is useful. Sciences are fun. English is horrible, but important. PE is a humiliating torture zone where you’re forced to waste time instead of learning something valuable that will help you get into University.

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.

PE is the worst how do people come up with it. I hate it and I’m super hot during the summer and even not in the summer. I also hate it because in the winter and fall it’s cool you don’t really sweat and then you get even colder when you run specially on white grass. Well thanks for listening guys.

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).

In my opinion, language arts are the best and most important subject. It is fun to read and write and everyone seems to get really excited when they are about to write and read. Typing and making books is really fun too! Who doesn't love to sit in a quiet, comfy, cozy little corner and read a book that takes you anywhere else in the universe, maybe even another universe? And who doesn't love to let their imagination run wild with some writing? Yep, LA are the best subject EVER!

If you find language arts fun, your mind is messed. I'm sorry, but there isn't a single thing, not one, that studying literature taught me. Every single theme in every single piece of literature is something I could've come up with myself based on the moral beliefs I (and all of us for that matter) were taught since birth. It's boring, useless nonsense. I hope it becomes something that isn't a required subject. Something like art; useless and boring.


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

Algebra was the first subject that I had ever gotten a C in, in my life. I had only gotten A's and a handful of B's until algebra shimmied into my life at grade 7. My parents were so displeased, and my teacher didn't care enough to teach me properly. Dammit all.

Really? I LOVE Algebra! I'm in grade four, our school teaches it and even the kids who hate math are interested! (although there is practically no one who hates math in my school besides the guy who hates our teacher)

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.


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.

When I realised We Went To history Class every Tuesday Instead Of Geography I was hyped for what Era of history it was going to be and really hoped it was WWII until I got there and the history teacher said we were Doing first fleet and us Aussies may have a great country but we have a boring history and oh god I couldn't stand it one bit until...Our first fleet lessons were over HOORAY! And our teacher then said that our history next term is none other than the Gold Rush and I was salty as Hell when the words gold rush came out of his mouth and it was worse than our first fleet Crap and my Class even went Camping in Bathurst for 3 Days With the Grade/year 6 class and Christ on a Bicycle it was horrible and the only good thing that happened was when we went to the Souvenier shop and k got a toy Dinosaur while everyone else got either Gum or a toy Wombat
Anyway I'm glad those lessons are over and 2018 has nearly ended.

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!

When will I ever need this? I don't want to be an engineer or construction worker, I want to be a writer. Hell, I was never that good at math to begin with, and this subject just irritated me so much last year. Honestly, if my grade was just based on tests, I would've failed, because I got an F on every test I took, except semester exams, which I got a C and D on, and those were curved up. Yeah, that's really showing that this useless subject should be taught even though no one gets it and always fails it. Jeez, math was fine before letters were involved.

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 THIS SUBJECT! Especially the dumb teacher that I have! He still wants us to do test corrections on the last days of school! Oh and if there are people who haven't took the test.. NO MOVIE. I hate the teacher more than the subject. Thank god that it was only one 9 wks with him. :/


Memorization with no method or expression of a topic or viewpoint. Math uses methods. English and Social Studies allows you to express your viewpoint of a topic using facts and opinions.

Probably the most overrated subject there is. You're forced to learn stupid facts that you don't need for your job or anything like that. Math, Reading, Economics, etc all require some sorts of methods. Science is just memorizing dumb facts you don't need for a future career.

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.

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


Ugh...I suck at writing,Reading's ok.But I hate writing.Writing stories at home can be fun.I admit it.BUT PLEASE!Writing class sucks!Writing itself isn't that bad.But all we do in writing class is
Make a introduction
make a story
make a conclusion
repeat till school year is over

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

Foreign Language

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

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.

No offense to deaf people, but American Sign Language nearly caused me to fail Junior Year of high school. It's not just a subject. It's a whole new culture, that if you don't get months of practice before taking the class, you will fail. I mean, by god, how do people make hand symbols and fingerspell read that fast? I'm thankful it didn't hold me back. I like the subject and teacher, but the class was stupid as f

I get that this is nice to know, but in my county, in order to get an Advanced Diploma, it is mandatory that you take either at least 4 years of 1 language or 3 years of 1 language and 2 of another. I only take Spanish so I can graduate, and this class I can guarantee is a waste of my time. I'd rather be taking something like Marketing or IT


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 )

Hey guys! You will need this when you need to take care of pets when your grown up, or if you have a disease. Anyone who says that this is horrible, should go to Uganda and look how important biology there is.

Biology and Geology are the worst. At least Astronomy is interesting! I miss when my class was taught about stars, planets, and galaxies. I find outer space to be interesting.

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.

I had dance topic in Elementary school and if you were there watching us, it would've ranged from completely hilarious to cringey as hell as we cranked Soulja Boys and did pelvic thrusts to MC Hammer's Can't Touch This and James Brown. But we were kids and kids are silly sometimes. I just thank God that we didn't have something like this in High School.

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!

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


How is this not No. 1? It is the most pointless subject in the history of the world. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, but how is this going to help us in the future? What use could this probably do? So in my job interview, this is going to be important? "So you want to work at Pizza Hut? Well, sure, but only if you state ten religions! " Utterly pointless.

In my opinion, I think that science is the explanation to all of this. The air, earth, fire and water all have an explanation. But what do people say when they don't want to believe the truth, they say a man called god did this. Why is god a man? How sexist!

Ugh I'm tired of most modern feminists. They think everything is sexist. God is a man but that's not sexist. Men are a gender too.

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

There shouldn't be a religion class. Teachers have no right to shove religion down their students' throats.


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.

What's worse is that how they want you to put you're hands at! It's horrible! They put your fingers on the main keys an it just hurts your hands! Without doing the "best" way to type I can type up to 62wpm, but using the "best" way to use it I end up typing at 18wpm!

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

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.


I started to hate reading when the teacher said "okay, read this book over the summer".
Although this is very common, I was a sixth grader at that time. The assigned book was 500 PAGES.

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.

I had always been passionate about producing amazing piece of text but after joining literature, I feel that they apply a high pressure on students and also MYP / IGCSE grades it very strictly

Computer Science

It's a fun subject. Only if they don't make learning basic syntax taking forever, also it's sometimes entire Codecademy.

I puke when I open the text book

Computer science is so fun.

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


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.

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.

It's pointless. Most of us aren't going to become musicians. Why are people hating on math and English when we need them? This should be higher on the list.


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.

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 the worst subject ever, maybe its just my teacher but it is boring not interesting and not fun to do or learn.

It was fun in elementary school. Now it's boring. Literally who cares about the physics of a hockey puck being hit?

Social Studies

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


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

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

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

How is reading Shakespeare gonna help me become a computer programmer?


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.

From the very first day of Year 7 I already knew it was gonna be painful. The first thing the teacher said was "Draw anime, instant 0. Draw any kind of Asian form of art, instant 0. Draw something which I don't approve of, instant 0. Draw too slowly, instant 0." Then we had 4 stupid assignments, where we had to study the life of Frida Khalo or some woman. Even if I *was* gonna major in art I don't think memorising the life of Vincent Van Gogh would get me a job. Thank god I can drop it next year.

Art is just a completely painful class where the teacher gives you another assignment every other class period whether you have it done or not and doesn't ever give you any time which leads your life into a downward spiral so stressful you come to sites like this and rip your brains out that Art isn't the worst class on the list and that only 2% of the people chose this. Like come on! (My teacher is the worst I swear, she smokes too)

I like drawing and stuff but what makes the subject such a pain is one thing, one thing... the teachers. They do not let you draw whatever media you are good at, they make you draw things you don't want to draw.

I wanted to draw manga and cartoons because I enjoyed it and I was quite good at it but my teachers demands I did something else like printmaking which was something I didn't like but it's cool if you like it, I personally don't.

It's like "just let me draw what I want" and then the teachers would go "no, you have to follow your objectives". I understand they want to test your artistic skills in all areas but at least give me some freedom to draw what I can fully express.

Home Economics

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

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

Why would you need to learn that at school? You can be taught at home.

SO STUPID the teacher assigned pages and she didn't tell anyone so we all got FS


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

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

My brain will explode next time I hear that word!


Compared to math this is a living hell

We get tablets but it's so damn stupid.

Think this subject is really boring

Who cares about america anymore?


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

This is the dumbest subject ever!

Business Studies

That's for college or something!

This subject is a torture.
