Top Ten Worst School SubjectsImagine-Thor-Here
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 - 906389
Well, the basics are important, but the rest is just useless! Why do we need to learn how to solve the area of shapes or stuff like polynomials?! We never use them in real life!
Why do I get it everyday its not even useful (except for basic adding and subtracting, oh and percentages.)V 215 Comments
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? - keycha1n
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. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter
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!
One of the reasons why I hate it is because:
Kids in my class: *runs 50 miles without even getting tired*
Me: *runs 10 feet and falls to the ground breathless*
I just don't get it. HOW?! - sum_fudge
I'm tired of writing 3 essays EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK.
My english teacher always assigns an essay every other week, and she isn't her nicest and makes me feel uncomfortable doing them! If I get an F, it means she hates me! - hoppingicon
I just wonder when are we ever, and I mean EVER, going to use participles. If anyone can give me the answer, I would be very grateful
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).V 69 Comments
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
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.
They talk too much at my school. Then they are really mean and try to "hype" up the excitement of history. When am I ever gonna use this? I don't wanna become a historian and I'm NOT going to EVER trust some of these lessons. For example, "Columbus found the United States of America in 1492." WHAT? NO HE DIDN'T! Also, "How did the Roanoke colony disappear? " I WASN'T THERE HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO ANSWER THAT?!?!?! We also do nothing in class expect work on projects for 1/2 a day then turn them in. Or, we end up using nothing which kills the trees, goes to waste and we just listen. Actually, now that I'm thinking about this, I just realized that we just deforested so many environments. WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK DID WE DO/LEARN IN THIS SUBJECT?!?!V 78 Comments
I always have problem with algebra.
Letters + Numbers = Disaster x_x - sum_fudge
Most pointless subject everV 43 Comments
Geometry is not that bad. It is actually nice because you are getting a break form all the numbers in math and get to do stuff with shapes which is stuff most of us learned in preschool or kindergarten
Geometry always ruins my good grade streak - Toptenanimallovers
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!
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!V 31 Comments
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.
It's hard to be any good at all at writing
Worst class hands downV 36 Comments
Worst and boring
Science is actually really useful and exciting, my class is learning about Marine Life this term (P.S I'm in 5th grade and sharks are my favourite sea animal) - Peppapigsucks
Science is the best. the experiments are awesome and when you do science you learn exiting things like space and how to make ICE CREAM!
For my school, science is just boring research and a lot of boring homework!V 51 Comments

It's not like I'm moving to France or whatever. - ArpstaAmy333
People say Spanish is the easiest to learn yeah tell that to the 7 TEST'S that I took in MIDDLE SCHOOL!
I have to learn French in my school. Worse subject ever, I'd rather learn Spanish. - CharismaticKat
What are we gonna do with it anyways. Once we're done learning it, we'll forget it sooner or laterV 34 Comments
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! - Wolftail
The teacher that you're describing sounds exactly like the teacher I have now in my dance class. - JaysTop10List
We just did West African Dance... that was an interesting unit... - sum_fudge
I am so glad this wasn't a subject at my school... I dance like a drunken hippopotamus. And that's just on my "good days".
Don't understand how is this a class - MChkflaguard_YtV 23 Comments
I just called this lesson "Sleep". So boring, especially with a bible bashing teacher telling me I'll go to hell.
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.
I'm an atheist. We shouldn't have this subject. - AnonymousChick
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. - DumbWays2DieFanV 34 Comments
Typing is easy, I don't think it's a subject.
This is easy for me. That's why I'm typing right now and I don't mind stuff like typing essays and stuff, no problem for me - sum_fudge
This is a school subject? Laugh out loud! - Wolftail
It's hard to type without looking at the keyboardV 28 Comments
I like it. - sum_fudge
It's a fun subject. Only if they don't make learning basic syntax taking forever, also it's sometimes entire Codecademy. - 50
Computer science is so fun.
Blaqqq this subject gives me depressionV 3 Comments
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.
We have to read books. What's worse is we get questions about it. - DumbWays2DieFan
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!V 2 Comments
Worst subject ever. I almost fell asleep in social studies today! (Not an expression, I literally almost did! )
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 for some, but I simply cannot understand the stuff there. - LeetHaterz
It sucks it's just boring and useless and so annoying and it always makes my grades down I don't know I never succeeded in it and never like it it's just I hate it and also because of chemistry and everything it's just boring and reallyy stupid and I don't know it's shiiittiest subject ever
SO BLOODY BAD AND BAD!V 10 Comments
This is actually a kind of useful subject
SO STUPID the teacher assigned pages and she didn't tell anyone so we all got FS
I hate this it’s useful but it is so boring!
Cooking is useful. But we only make things like cakes. Teach us how to make healthy foods too. Luckily my mom taught me. - DumbWays2DieFanV 5 Comments

I'm in 6th grade and we have to sing stupid baby songs instead of playing instruments
Music is enjoyable for me. There is only 1 music teacher at my school, and quite a bunch of people get along with her especially those in choir. - MChkflaguard_Yt
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.
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.V 5 Comments
We don't care about this crap!
Who cares about america anymore?
Compared to math this is a living hellV 4 Comments
Okay. I like to draw and even design stuff using clay. I just don't like it when the teacher wants it done their way. What happened to "being creative with our ideas" or even "do it at the best of your own ability? " - Stazemar000
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... - Turkeyasylum
My art teacher said "This will be a quick demonstration." A girl timed the demo on her watch - 15 minutes... and the class was 40 minutes. - sum_fudge
I love artV 43 Comments
It is basically making newspapers or yearbooks! We have a newspaper club for a use!
This is the dumbest subject ever!
Why isn't this higher? Why do we need to learn about Shakespeare or novels, like we already know how to speak it.
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!
What about grammar, and basic english... Even native speakers need to master it - AzureCrystals
I already know the language. - DumbWays2DieFan

Pretty sure this is supposed to be astronomy, but I guess reading the future could be useful too.
I love it. Anyone who says astronomy sucks is an idiot.
No they're not. People can hate the class for reasons. We're not idiots for hating astronomy. I hate the class because I don't give a crap about the planets. Learn how to respect opinions. - DumbWays2DieFan

I hate Technology, our teacher makes us do pointless assignments that are not even Tech related. If I get one of these kinds of assignments, I usually just say "screw it" and don't do it. I don't give a dime about my Tech grade as it is not an important subject. Damn you Tech Ed teacher, you are a stupid time-wasting moron!
To much homework :-(
You never really learn anything interesting and the teachers don't know what they are doing. There was this one good Technology teacher, but he moved to Florida. Before we had him, my class had this jerk as a teacher who'd insult us. He wasn't very encouraging and we never really learned anything from him.
I already know about technology. Coding is ok though. - DumbWays2DieFanV 4 Comments

A bad subject if you're a perfectionist. At least in my school, every teacher we had for this subject moved from thing to another so fast I never got to finish the things I started... Thank god it became optional for me since 8th grade. - Cookies
Was required to take this class in grade 9 as part of Home Economics. I was terrible at it, I hated the teacher. She was also super forgetful and never took attendance except the first day. To be honest I skipped 80% of that course by hiding in the bathroom and playing games on my phone the whole period. Passed with a C+. Thank god It's an elective for me now after grade 9. Good riddance.
YES. I HATE TEXTILES SO MUCH. It's so useless, stupid and boring. It really should be an optional subject, because no-one likes it.
What do people do in Textiles? I don't have it at my cheap school.V 4 Comments

Most people say trig is easy and that is the problem, no one puts in effort to explain to me what anything mean, if it was not for this I would have had way higher marks because algebra is extremely simple to me
Reading class is fun and makes go to good universities, but it is the worst nightmare is like a arabic class style and it is tough to memorize I take a reading test but I got score 20 why school did this reading is the worst of all
Makes fall asleep annoying frustrating and makes madness
I hate reading
Why is low need to be higher
Chemistry is should be #2 nothing makes sense and it is all more complicated than it needs to be
Most of us have to recite the periodic table. - DumbWays2DieFan
Chemistry is the absolute worst subject I have been to by far! Worse than algebra. Don't get anything there! Math and Science not a good combination at all!
Chemistry is awesome and interesting.V 4 Comments
Sex education is important, but it should be taught to single sex classrooms. When teenagers of both sexes are in a classroom together and the teacher puts a condom on a tube or displays a picture of a vagina, there is always a commotion. The girls get embarrassed and the boys make inappropriate comments.
They don't even separate the boys and girls in our school. Seriously, this should be number 1.
Just the stuff we do in there really puts me of my dinner.
They waste a condom by putting it on a banana. - DumbWays2DieFanV 13 Comments
Enough drama happens in school. - DumbWays2DieFan
I don't have that at my school, but the 8th grade does get their own play each year. As a future author, putting yourself in your character's shoes is important. You get to learn a lot about a person that way.
It is boring not useful. Not everyone is or want to be a celebrity
At my school it's after school and optional. I wish it were a regular class actually. - PianoQueenV 1 Comment
I loathe geology with everything in me. I'm taking a geology EXAM right now, it is misreable
Sheldon was right. Geology sucks
Geology was so boring and unnecessary. How is it going to help a future author in life?
Ever since I started taking this subject. I can no longer understand the meaning of life.
I actually love this subject to be honest
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 - ILoveCodySML
I took Health when I was a freshman for 2nd semester. I get the relationships part and sexuality, but I'm wonderinhg why people have to complain so much when certain body parts are being brought up. Their asses should be taught a lesson - Stazemar000
Out Of All Of Them, Health Has To Be The Most Pointless Subject Of All Time, WE DO IT EVERY FRIDAY.

I was forced to go to Chinese school as a kid and learn Mandarin and write it. I hated it. It's pointless. It was so hard that I dropped out a few years later. I only want to learn SPOKEN Cantonese (which I'm already pretty fluent in), not writing or reading it!
Because you don't like literature that is 90% of it - MChkflaguard_Yt
Foreign language classes suck because we have google translators. - DumbWays2DieFan
Chinese can be boring and fun at the same time.
It's a dead language. Don't even bother bringing it back. Plus we have translators if we gave enough craps to care. - DumbWays2DieFan
