Science, never exactly a strong point, despite being placed in the top GCSE set and therefore doing triple science. To this day I don't really know why I am doing A2 Biology!

At GCSE, although easy, English is probably the 'hardest subject' to be sure of the answer! So many marks for individual questions and the possibilities are endless. I suppose I'm more scientific and logical in my thinking, hence I find Maths and the Sciences easier.

the best thing about my english GCSE was having a teacher who was clearly drugged up on anti-depressants or something, who showed us Shrek on video for the last 3 lessons of term or so. At first she pretended it was for the course, but then she would just replay the donkey singing "Baby Got Back" over and over... very weird, and completely true!

But that's what makes it so easy! Half of the time you don't even need to know the answer, so long as you write it well and SOUND like you know what you're saying you'll get near enough full marks. Write about underlying emotional themes even if you didn't see one, and the importance of a line of dialogue that you found boring... throw in a few important-looking quotes and bingo! A+

My English teacher was a hippy. If the topic of drugs came up in a book or something, she always clearly wanted to put a positive spin on smoking weed :rolleyes:

Also, she played that "pull it, twist it, bop it" game with a group of girls in my class on the last day. Watching a half-stoned 50 year old teacher headbutting a piece of plastic (at the wrong time) is fun.

Funny but I can't imagine a maths or science teacher in either of those scenarios. It must be something about strangeness or mental instability that predisposes people to becoming english teachers.

I dunno, my Chemistry teacher was obsessed with WWE wrestling and Shrek. And one day I'm convinced he was stoned in class... he was swaying about at his desk, then he walked into a chair, and blew something up then started giggling when trying to show us an experiment.

LOL!

Those who like weed, teach.

Teachers are silly, who in their right mind would want to spend their days with obnoxious and/or scrubby teenagers or snotty little reception kids who piss themselves every five minutes?

Maths, definitely. I thought I would never have to face it again after scarping a C at GCSE, only to find it in General Studies. Oh how I did weep. Science is hard too, but perhaps slightly less so, as it's not just numbers. Sorry if I'm being ignorant about maths, I can see how it's fascinating and I respect mathematicians a lot, but I just can't do it!

I love English

None of them are particularly hard - got the same grades in all of them at GCSE (i realise GCSE isnt exactly really hard). Guess its just whether u enjoy them or not; contemplated doing either biology, chemistry, physics, maths or english for AS level (but thought that about all my subjects really!) Now the subject i found hard was music

I'm not a (traditional) scientist or a mathematician, but I am appalling at English. I didn't know what a metaphor was until the week before GCSE exams... English Lit was my only B at GCSE. English language = A*. wtf?!

Quantitative science is hard. But Physics stuff like the universe, relativity, dimensions, astronomy etc is really interesting (well, to me :p:)
