What were your best and worst subjects in elementary school? In middle school? In high school?
OK, this is what I get for getting my journal jar prompts from an American site. Elementary, middle and high school? We have infants, junior and senior or primary and senior. Just need to do a quick bit of research…
According to Wikipedia – Education in the US, elementary school is the same as primary school in the UK, from 5-11 or 12, middle school (or junior high) is from 11-14 and high school is from 14-18.
So, here are my answers to today’s prompt:
My best subjects in primary school were Maths, English and Geography. My worst subject was definitely History, I could never remember all the dates of the Kings and Queens of England!
My best subjects in what we now know as KS3, were still Maths, English and Geography but I also enjoyed German. My worst subject was still history and I gave History up when I chose my subjects for GCSE.
So, on to the high school age group. This is actually quite hard as in the UK we split high school into the GCSE part – up to age 16 – and then, if you wanted, you can leave and go to work or you can continue to A-Levels. My best subjects at GCSE were English and German, I also enjoyed Maths and Geography. My worst subject was Physics, in fact I took the GCSE exam twice! For A-Level, I only took English Literature, Geography and German and didn’t do very well at any of them. I loved Geography though and would have gone to do a degree in Geography if I’d got the grades I needed.
Which were your best and worst subjects at school? Do you like them now?
I actually quite like history now that I can choose which parts I want to learn about. I still don’t know the dates for the Kings and Queens of England though 😉
