You attended classes during your primary, secondary and tertiary level of education. During your stay, or your current schools; What are your favorite subjects? I like the subjects like history and science. I have earn better grades and sometimes get exempted during the final exams based on my good performance in the first trinal and midterm exam. I find history as a very informative and full of interesting topics which tackles various places and events of the history. Then, Science open my eyes to know the real facts against fiction, It offers a lot of evidence which proves a phenomena as a real fact and not just based on theory. How about you? Could you tell me about your favorite academics subjects? Why do you find them interesting?

Hi neelianoscet, during my school days right from secondary level I have been fascinated by Mathematics I continued to do my undergraduation and also post graduation in Maths. I worked also in the same field Now even though I am no more working the subject has its charm. Hence I continue to teach online. I think there are many more like me though it is usually disliked by many students and considered as nightmare. Have a nice day

Yes Neelianoscet. You are correct. Mathematics is nothing but a sequesnce of conditions which follow a logical reasoning. The challenge and charm lies in finding the sequence and applying logic solve. Still the charm is there for me. Have anice day

yap, mathematics is encounter by us everywhere whenever we buy clothes, selling, measurements, calculation and the final result in logical reasoning that is the solution to the problems. Even though I find math as difficult subjects I have to take it as I finish Business Admin. and have it since first year up to fourth year college, all I see a lot of computation, like Business math, algebra, statistics, finance and Accounting..

Science makes you an inquisitive person like Einstein and Edison..out of their curiosity comes out brilliant ideas which the world owe them thanks for their magnificent contributions to mankind..with science you becomes a potential scientist in your own discovery of mysteries vying facts against fiction..

For me it has always been English including literature, creative writing etc. I have always had a love of writing and that has not changed today! I did okay at school but I did not enjoy anything mathematical; apparently I was taught algebra; these days I don’t recall learning it and still see no point to it; I must have learnt it in order to pass but I don’t remember! It has been a long time since I was at school, that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!

yap, I do have difficulty in learning math beginning from my pre-schooler up to my college days...I really have a hard time to understand algebra and anything that have math on it..English is taught as a second language in my country and all the academic subjects were taught in English or translated, while the local subjects have Pilipino as the country lineage subjects..I t says math is their in everything we do all in the environment if counted are all math..

In the early school life,I have no preferences with subjects.I just studied the question and answers given and wrote exams to secure high marks.Only in high school level,I started getting interest in science and maths.Science reveals the secrets of the nature and I liked the challenge of problem solving in maths.Cheers!

I too never really get serious in my elementary days even I high school I think I get mature and seriously focused in my study during my college days..Both science and math are very important, especially math which have been a part of every subjects since pre-schooler till college. math is always present and even if you do not like. Students have no choice but to take it in order to qualify for the next levels..

My favorite subject then is Criminal Law 1, my friend. I like always carry my books to memories all articles and get the concepts of the Law. Determined of the gravity of the offense and the classification of felony that is committed...It's interesting because you know can learn more about the application of the and the criminal justice of the Land...

Your interest may lead you to take up or specialize in Criminal law as a lawyer. Or you may also qualify to take up Investigative criminology courses as you are interested in investigation, finding proof of evidence and detection of lies will eventually lead you to take up such a rewarding career..

I too have law subject in college and the instructors insist us to memorize the 10 pages articles. Then, their are many books have to read with subject like in commercial law, auditing law, criminal etc..which one have to took to study for 5 years in college. Then, one have to prepare for bar review which is really an expensive courses. But, the people who study law had already have their first degree and some already work they use their earning to pay their tuition fees. Classes are often every night after work or every weekend as schedules..It is really an expensive, but it is a very challenging degree and the fame you get after you pass the law board add to the excitement having title as attorney at law...

In schools I have always been interested in General science,because was interesting in every aspect possible.Life is connected to Science,I say.When teacher used to tell us about our human body that too upon differentiating between Girls and Boys,that was an totally unexplored part to understand during those days. Many used to giggle upon the lessons being taught over this,lots of comments too were passed on but our teacher wasn't as strict as there were others,she used to get jovial with all and took classes very well with examples that were really funny,to be short.I also liked English,it was filled with very good stories ,articles, poems too.I felt the grammar part was something like an puzzle when our teacher gave it to us.I don't other subjects are not as better,but I found these two subjects good in my styles.

They are nice subjects and they even get better when teacher teach students in a lively tone and even gives or illustrates good examples. Aside form it,encourages students to ask questions, participate or share opinions is a plus factors to make the subjects more interesting..You not only learn from the topics being discuss but you learn many information which broaden your knowledge which makes you a better student. English exercises your ability to speak and write the languages which makes you bridge the communication barriers between English speaker when you understand English gives you more opportunity to improve your grammar..Then, general science tackles all branch of science, and one of this is the study of Anatomy. Being able to differentiate it between males and females helps a student to have a mature understanding of its purposes..

Hi neelianoscet Now I'm in my college, just graduate from high school 3 months ago. When I was in high school my favorite subject are history and science! Same with you. I like history because it just like reading story book and it's very interesting and informative. The true story from hundreds of years ago now in my hand and I can read it, see the relation of on event to other, etc. For science, I like physics, biology and chemicals. I like physics because it's unique, I can learn about the relation between speed and time, gravitation, etc, although I can't count it in real life. About biology, I don't know why but I found myself good in this subject. And chemical! I love mix chemical ingredients in the lab, and when it changes into unpredictable color I felt really happy Now I take communication as my college major subject, I miss my science and history.. I wonder why I enter this subject. but science development in my country not really good..

Building your own company is a toughie but if you are really are interested you may start to build your business in a small scale if you have little capital-which I mean you have to know the management style of building your own business or company which is a big organization. First you must have the resources like the money, know your or identify your target market, procurement of right sources of raw materials, and procurement of manpower. Then, if you have no experience..you must start to engage in sole proprietorship that is a owner of a store. Then, a partnership if you have a partner to share your split capital and split earning which are own by the two of you. With bigger business, it could be a company which entails higher capital which mean you should have at least a hundred thousand or million to build a company of your own for examples the Procter and gamble, Pepsi Cola etc..It could be a manufacturing or service oriented business. Now, the relation of your courses communication have values, you could uses it to communicate with every business transactions between you and customer. Now, if you dream about it is a long way to go. You must have study business administration major in management or financial management in order to understand this concept. But, if you have money or capital. You could start a business as a sole proprietorship where you are the owner and the boss. You must study all the cons and pros, I mean the in and out of the business requires a lot of patience, dedication and knowledge of the current situation of the market. You need to know the demand of the market and create opportunity for your products and services in order to succeed and build your own company someday...

Learning English could take you anywhere and it is good that you know to write and speak the languages fluently as it may be your passport to have a rewarding career like having to work in a call center, or in tourism..I too is good in writing but really find it too to talk fluently.

No, english is my second language and tagalog is my national language. Then, whether we like it or not, students have to take subjects with English translation and almost all subjects whether in math, science or even in physical education the medium of instruction is English but when class is on break, students normally speak our local dialects and even varies from region to region. I see your from China, its nice to know you..Ni Hao Ma. To you zie zie..

My favorite subjects were Music, math , and history in that order. I love music and it was great to take orchestra. As for math, it always came easy to me . I loved, loved, algebra. Once you learn the rules , it was easy to follow. And history tells the story of our lives, past and present. Without it , we would keep making the same mistakes and we wouldn't have a future.

The first groups of subjects you mention, especially the first two, I really have difficulty in getting a high grades on it..for me math is a complex subjects while music, I love to listen to it but cold not understand the music symbols. And, History is the best among the rest..Hopefully, I manage to pass the difficult subject ..

They say us musicians are naturally good at math. It makes sense because we learn to keep time while playing music. As for the symbols, it took some time. I wish you luck with your subjects. Take care.

Science was my favorite subject but only the chemistry part was very dry. I used to like physics and biology too much. In fact I went on to do my degree in Physics. The thing I liked about physics and biology is that its not just theory. You can actually apply the principles and knowledge in your day-to-day life as well. It didn't bother me that what am I going to use to all this knowledge for. Physics is an absolute wonder. It taught me so many principles from every day life that I left wondering that why didn't I notice this before. Things like mirage, reflection, refraction, force, friction, gravity. They still amaze me and if I get an opportunity I would like to know more about it.

Both math and computer are good subjects. They are integral part of student life since elementary or primary levels to tertiary levels are requirements to finish a degree in college. And, when a student graduates from high school she have the right to choose a degree which is related to a subject which he find interesting.

My favourite subject(s) at school was definatly ICT. It is something ive had a very large knowledge about from a very young age, and was something that I wanted to get a career in. So I worked hard in ICT, but the work was easy and I got tip top grades very easily, with much time to spare! And now I have a career as an IT technician. I could say my second favourite subject was media as we got alot of sitcoms to watch during lesson, however the exam was rather hard!

Yup, those subjects would always be on demand and not becomes saturated as the technology is fast changing and many companies need to hire people who are talented and with right skills to makes the demand sustainable for a longer periods of times. being an IT technician could makes in demand to access jobs even in other countries assuring you of brighter future. Media is also good and even the future they would also be available as people needs a lot of gossips, entertainment and many more..

English or literature (not sure what they call it anymore) has always been mine since my first days at school. I was always into reading and writing. And books and authors have always fascinated me. I think science was my second favorite because I have always been curious as to how things (even mammals) "worked". But I am a major reader to this day. I read everything I can get my hands on.

I took up Psychology back in college. I used to love all of its branches like developmental and social Psychology to name a few. It's not just objective but it was also modern learning. It dealt with human personality and behavior and I guess I'm proud I've studied all of it. I also loved logic. My professor was a good teacher. He could inform you with his simple words yet it was believable. In fact, I was one of the best students in his subject.

I also have subject like Psychology, I think I have 3 subjects taken from my secondary up to fourth year levels. The topics includes human psychology, spirituality, sexuality, mental health problems,and logic. Psychology includes many sub-fields of study and applications concerned with such areas as human development, sports, health, industry, media and law. It is a nice subjects wherein it could be both theoretical and applied knowledge which really the study of human psyche and its relations to its surrounding..Good for you, really do quite well in that subject. Your interest on psychology may lead you to a career in being a psychologist.
