When I was in school, I was awesome at Geography and English. My English is still good, but I noticed the other day, while playing a game, that my Geography skills aren't what they were. I used to know where all the countries in South America and Northern Africa were and what their capitals are. I had to ask for my husband's help with this. That's a shame. I used to be great at spelling too and I've noticed that's slipped as well. I still compete in spelling tournaments in my area though, but I don't place first as I did when I was younger.

I was always the topper in all my Math related subjects like Arithmetic, Algebra and Trignometry.Tamil was also my best because I was always the first here too. College changed me and I found pure geometry difficult. As my base was very good in English I performed very well in English and got a gold medal and a First university rank in this. That is why I finished my Masters' in English . I started with Maths and finished my University education after an M.A in English Literature.I have had no regrets till date.

Way back, I love english and psychology. Those are the two subjects that I really got high grades. Well, I got those grades because I really exerted much effort and dedication. Also, my teachers for the two subjects were also awesome. They also motivate us to do well and work hard.

Hi! I would have to say that my best subject in school is Recess!LOL. I know its not an official subject but all of us treat it as a subject. We answer this way whenever we were asked this question. Its not that we dont get normal subjects but the school ahs very high standards that when we get just a passing grade, my classmates and most of the students there give blowouts and offers mass just because they passed.^_^ Im serious about this. Seriously about your question, I guess my best subject is English too. I get really high grades in elementary and until now I do. I join spelling competitions too but Im not that active. Now, I dont know ut I get high grades in my major subects than in my minor subjects. So I dont know if I have a best or I dont.^_^

Hi there tipsyflash! When I was studying, in elementary, high school and college, my best subject is English and Math, the least. That's why when I took up Bachelor of Elementary Education in college, I chose English as my specialization.
