    Chem: red
    Phys: blue or black
    Bio: green
    Maths: brown, due to the number of boring qs
    English: cream
    History: scarlet
    Latin: purple
    The top three were simply due to the colour of the text-book (except that Phys is sorta black); they should make all textbooks the same colour to avoid bias! Interesting q, btw

    (Original post by RyzoRGS)
    I have recently gotten coloured cards and labels for my revision and I am wondering what colours you associate with your subjects and to see if they will work for me
    This is probably just because my exercise books were most of these colours last year but

    Maths (and stats) - blue (or maybe dark purple too - favourite colour, favourite subject)
    Biology - green
    Chemistry - yellow
    Physics - blue also
    Spanish/ French- light purple
    English - red
    Geography - blue again or green

    I think most people would agree that you associate it with your exercise book/ folder colour
    Well here are mine
    Physics red
    History purple
    Chemistry yellow
    Biology green
    Maths nondescript because we have these weird cream coloured books which don't really come off in one's mind as memorable
    French blue (though I usually think of 'pain' and 'torture' and 'failure' before anything else when someone says 'French' in subject context)

    It used to be maths - blue, English - red and science - yellow in primary school but it changed afterwards for me.

    Maths is dark blue.
    English is red.
    Biology is pale blue.
    Chemistry is pink.
    Physics is purple.
    Geography is yellow.
    Latin is either dark red or orange.

    For all of my other subjects the books changed colour every so often. But not maths. It was red/orange in Y1 and it was red/orange in Y11.
