#ThrowbackThursday. My Absolute Worst!





Hey guys, in the spirit of #ThrowbackThursday lets reflect on our secondary school days. I was just going through my cousin's report sheet and he's got As in maths, biology and physics. And it makes absolutely no sense to me that someone so smart could get an F in English. Like, it simply defies logic!

But looking back at high school, there were those super smart further math geeks who chewed on maths and sciences like it was suya but the just couldn't understand English. I'm still yet to understand this. 

For me, that one subject that I hated, HATED, and never seemed to do well at no matter how hard I tried or how much effort I put into it, it was maths. 

Subjects like English, government, commerce and literature were a breeze for me. But maths, maths... 

Math was my worst subject in secondary school

What was yours?

  2. I hated government and English. For maths once you understand the steps, you are good to go.

  5. Subject I disliked the most in secondary school was Geography. The most effort I put in it was managing to write my notes (and there were plenty of notes to write). Expecting me to read them would have been asking too much. For SSCE, I managed to get a Credit though, goodness knows how. The only thing I remember studying for the exam was map reading...lol.
    Chemistry almost became my least favourite subject though. I remember my first Chemistry exam the marked scripts came out, and I think I got 12 over 40. The whole concept of atoms and electrons in K, L, M shells was really not sitting well with me. Fortunately, my mum got me a Chemistry lesson teacher, and I spent my long vac getting drilled in Chemistry. By the time I went back, I ended up coming first in Chemistry in the whole year (might I add that having a really cute Chemistry teacher in SS 1 significantly piqued my interest in the subject... lol)

  6. Oh how I love English.. I didn't hate maths cos once I understood the steps (which usually took hours of studying with an Efiko), it became easy. Literature tho, oh how I hated that subject! Especially the poems. The poet would say "the rose is red" I would read "the rose is red" like any normal human should but no, my teachers would find a way to relate it to some tragedy somewhere or something completely off point. I liked it in my SS3 tho cos my teacher was foooooine! 😂😂😂 I still don't know how I got a B3 in the subject.
    I loved the books tho, I went out and bought a whole bunch of them in January just to read them again ("our husband has gone mad again" killed me too many times).

    I also hated Economics. My SS1 teacher was a perve, my SS2 teacher was this boring old man, we used to run out of the class when we saw him coming, my SS3 teacher was my SS1 teacher.. I managed to pass it at WAEC and ended up studying Economics in the Uni, I'm still not sure I like it but I passed in school sha..

  8. I was good in all subjects. Although I hated economics, I still passed it. All I had to do was give it few hours. But maths,first love. It broke my heart everyday of my university days that my course had nothing to do with maths.

  9. Hate Chemistry because of the Igbotic Chemistry teacher. When you ask him a question and he cant explain he will say "Just take it like that" Like WTF?
    I made a mistake going to a science class. I kept on failing Physics, Chemistry and Biology through out. And why the funk are the books so big?

    Peace.

  12. I disliked physics and it's simply because all the teachers were terrible. Biology was too broad. Now maths and further maths I excelled, I had an A1 in both. 😀

  14. I realised that the subject teacher if these courses mattered alot.
    My back ground in maths was faulty so I hated it.
    I excelled in further math BUT was average in math.
    The thing get as e be.

    I loved Biology then. I was so sure id be a doctor . I'm glad I "yam not"

    I never attended literature class but had an A1. cos I wanted to study law so I just sat for it to balance my subjects.
