Top Ten Worst School Subjects

The Top Ten
1 Math

It's not math itself that is bad, it's the way some teachers teach it, a lot of teachers make up "stories" to make math easier for students, but ultimately, confuse them, teachers, when you explain how to solve an algebra problem don't tell your students they need to "move variables to ther other side and change their sign" because it's not true and it's ridiculous.

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

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.

2 PE

I hated Gym Class... But I'll admit it was my own fault. I've never cared for sports (either as a participant or a spectator), and I'm not a coordinated or athletic person. I'm also not very competitive. I pretty much put forth zero effort in gym class, so a lot of the experience being miserable is my own fault for not trying more. Still: it was pretty humbling for me, being humiliated by the coaches each day for not being good enough at this or that activity ... and the comments from the other kids (and the inevitable getting picked last when choosing teams) didn't help my self-esteem much either. It's weird too, because as an adult I do try to work out now (and I'm probably much fitter today than I ever was a teenager). But today, I do solo workouts just for my own health and fitness ... it's not about competing with others, keeping score, and trying to win at everything (or in my case, just struggling not to come in last place in most group activities).

Why is everyone hating on PE? This is one of my favorite classes (wood shop is my favorite). I understand if you are horrible at running or not very athletic, and that's the exact reason that we have this class. It's there to get people in shape, because you will live a better life if you are in shape. And once you get in shape, its super fun! It's not even as much running as people think, I do JV soccer and it is wayyyyy more running. This should not be number 2!

I don't have anything against PE in general but the grading process is stupid. They put a specific point that you have to reach in order to pass and as a gamer I have little condition yet I'm among the ones that try the most. It should be graded for effort.

PE is the worst subject ever, and the a kid in my class says that I'm the only one in my school that hates gym. But I know that's not true. You know, if you add another e at the end of pe, it spells pee.

3 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).

it's the most useless class ever. You complain so bad that you'll never learn anything in math. Guess how much knowledge I learned reading Walter. None.

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!

4 History

The subject can be fun when taught correctly, but when it's some 50 year old who's lost all passion for teaching droning from a textbook and assigning essay after essay, it's pretty goddamn terrible. History holds literally no significance for most careers, why tf do we have to learn it?

History is awful. I get you need to know what happened but why do you need to know about how bad life was 100's of years ago. History is also taught horrible. I HATE 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.

5 Algebra

It is important for STEM but not everyday life so it is useless to teach. Should only teach to people who want to apply to STEM careers.

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)

6 Science

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.

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.

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.

7 Dance

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!

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!

As somebody self-concsious, dancing has to be the worst subject for somebody like me. To make things worse, it counts as our grade and it screws up uncreative students like me since I can't think of a dance move that has orginallity (I passed with the help of some friends fortunately)

8 Geometry

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. :/

9 Writing

We don’t have to grow up to be authors. We learned cursive and now we’re forced to write in cursive, it won’t help us in the real world anyways. Cursive just make writing slower so you won’t catch up with the rest of the class

Nope nope nope nope nope this subject is so incredibly boring... One time I actually fell asleep while writing a story and my friend had to wake me up.

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.

10 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

The Contenders
11 Biology

I'm never going to be a biologist so I don't know the point of learning Bio. It's hard as hell, memorizing all the Amoeba and Euglena and whatnot.

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.

12 Religion

I don't get why public schools would have religion. Catholic or Jewish schools maybe but not public. And to the atheists out there, don't you dare accuse Christians and Catholics of "shoving it down your throat." That is not true first of all. Second of all it is not a fact that it's a waste of time. Third of all, don't you say that it's Jesus and God are fake. Cause it's not. So please stop acting like you are always right.

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!

I don’t have this subject in my school but my friends who have it are always like, I DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS STUPID CLASS WHY DOES IT EXIST!

13 Typing

I had to do this in grade 3 and I thought it would be fun but seriously. I already know how to type! Come on man! Who cares if you put your index finger on the a !?!? My hands are pretty small too so typing class made my hands hurt.

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!

14 Health

I took Health last year when I was a freshman for 2nd semester. I actually enjoyed learning about relationships and sex, since we may need to know some safety tips. The teacher wasn't too bad, but lots of kids were talking while she was giving out instructions. So, she has to tell them to shut up over and over

Okay, you can't hate this class just because they talk about puberty. This class is actually really interesting. It lets you know that changes will be occurring in your body and how to prepare for them. Who cares if certain body parts are mentioned?

Out Of All Of Them, Health Has To Be The Most Pointless Subject Of All Time, WE DO IT EVERY FRIDAY.
Health Used To be Interesting, But Now We're Just Learning About Drugs Which Has Absolutely Nothing To Do With ''Interesting Stuff''. I'm In 4th Grade by the way

My health teacher would assign a project, we would have to work on one with a right deadline. Then, on the day of presenting, we would be assigned ANOTHER ONE. AND THE CYCLE REPEATS ITSELF!

15 Literature

I am a 4th grader, which is CRAZY, but on my previous grades of my school I did not have too much homework or classwork, also not a literature subject. But now, I have a BUTT TON of homework because of LITERATURE. It is also very hard for me to properly do this subject. My family says I am GOOD at literature even though I'm bad at it. I had a lot of help from my mom and brother before my literature exam. Somehow, I got pretty good marks for my exam. Now I know the reason why Literature is so hard. I saw on a google page that the reason most students HATE literature subject is because you have to put your own thoughts of a story into writing. I study novels now, which makes it WAY harder to do literature. Before my literature exam, I had to sequence a whole novel called 'Christophe's story' in the main bits.
Seriously. This is the second reason I hate literature in my school ( in a short way) You always have to discuss with a partner before you do some kind of difficult question. MY ...more

This is HORRIBLE. I had the worst time ever having to read boring Shakespeare books! I mean, I can’t understand one sentence in those books! In grade 3 we were supposed to read a book during the winter break and it was supposed to be a book that you never read before. All my books are old so I have read them all twice. Thankfully my birthday was in winter so I got a book from my friend!

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.

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.

16 Computer Science

I used to like computer science in my past schools. It was very fun. We didn't learn coding however. When I switched schools I thought we will learn coding, one thing I really dreamed of. BUT NO. Instead of coding, all we did is to do history of computing and we learned about STOCKS. I thought we were in computer science, not business or history.

Just incredibly useless. I could be spending time doing something useful like going outside and getting fresh air but instead I have to do some coding. What is the point of coding!?!? It's the most boring class there is.

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

17 Music

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 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

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.

18 Economics

It was a decent subject for me, but now this subject is utter garbage! Yes, even worse than Math!

Whats the point of it anyway?

I'm sorry, was this a pop quiz?

Utterly uninteresting.

19 Physics

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

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.

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?

20 Social Studies

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

Completely useless

Honestly, Blah

teachers can’t explain it right

21 English

Its really not that bad but there is one crappy thing about it. When your speaking in front of the class the teacher stops you and says: no no! It's the wrong pronunciation! And you are so embarrassed. I mean that actually happened to one of my classmates and I felt so bad for them.

This was the WORST!
1. Essays
We would be forced to write essays on topics that ABSOLUTELY NOBODY CARED ABOUT!
2. "Big" Words
This is so useless! Why do we need to use a word with 2000 letters instead of good?
3. Shakespeare
Do I even need to explain this one?
The list goes on and on. English isn't 100% useless, though. It's just super, super, super, super boring!

ugh. writing essays is the reason y I am failing ela. I'm in 6th grade and I seriously had to learn essays in 3rd grade?!?! and I suck at it. essays is my weak point. guess I'm working at mcdonalds, knowing that I'm gonna be stuck in 6th grade for the rest of my life. and they make u write essays in OTHER SUBJECTS! I quit. this is too hard.

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!

22 Art

Although I love to draw, I hate this subject as much as people hate math. In my past school, I used to like art and my teachers don't judge what I did wrong but told me how I could've improved. But I moved schools and this is where everything went downhill. The teacher judges what you did and tries so hard to not say "It's bad". Although she is trying so hard not to offend me by saying that it's bad, she already has offended me. I moved schools again and it was even worse. My new and current art teacher is nicer than my past teacher, but that doesn't solve things. I spent over a WEEK working on a piece of art about modern art, and I tried so hard on it and tried my fully best. And what grade did I get? ONE BIG FAT C. An average grade at my school is B, and one project I spent most of my time with got a C. Why did I get this C you asked? Did your project get ruined by someone else? No. I got a C just because I missed ONE SINGLE DETAIL which is to use a little more paint on my project. ...more

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)

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.

23 Calculus

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!

24 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

25 Drama

Dead as shakespeare

Its just bad

Stupid teachers can’t teach drama

Two types of drama
