It's all to do with what you enjoy really.

Maths was fun, but I think that was because of the teacher.

Like most of the other advanced higher maths members I found higher maths an easy subject tongue.gif however, I know alot of the people in the year struggle with it, so it's not an "easy" subject.

I've noticed alot of people seem to do bad in Higher English, I put half the blame on teachers though.

And she's not a small woman either, so the sight of Mima with a six foot long piece of wood was quite scary. tongue.gif It was the way she just plonked it down and went back to the board that got me.

God love her. "You'll be flying by the seat of your pants!" Still love it.

Te he depends which subject has good teachers, plus you have to enjoy it too and aren't dry as chalk.

I love Biology...not sure if it was the teacher or the fact that we always have a laugh there...he's an ex hippy but looks like Keanu Reeves…he's such a doll...*i'm mentally crazed*

yes that logic/creative divide is a thing to do with the brain functionality and it a gender thing as well...from what i see on the tv

I cant agree. I found Maths easy at H and AH but also Art (H and AH also). These were my two favourite subjects. English on the other hand was a subject which bored me cos i found it difficult. I am generally good at sciences and creative subjects. There is no clear divide of my skills in these areas.

Perhaps I didnt make my point clear.

My point is - every1 is different. There is no way of sayin what subjects are harder or easier. Its all down to individual taste: personal favourite and personal skills etc eg sum ppl hate physics and find it really hard. Whereas, sum ppl love it and have no bother at all. Each persons level of capability and choices are different.

I dont see any Higher as being easy. Infact I see nothing as easy because I think when you say something was/is "pish" easy, you are being cocky.

The subject I found least difficult was History. I enjoyed everything and enjoyed learning about Bismarck etc, so found it ok to write the essays.

My most difficult Higher was English. Given the fact my teacher was crap, I only started to understand English around Mid April time. I failed the prelim (44%) but managed to get a B in the Final exam. My teacher then said, I thought you'd have got an A depsite telling me I wouldn't pass the Final Exam. mad.gif

In some ways, I wish I took English again because I am sure I could have got that A if the essay questions were not crap and meant I couldnt write anything decent about Romeo and Juilet and Waiting Room. ph34r.gif

I'm more with Shandogg on this one. We don't seem to be getting anywhere though so maybe we should just agree to disagree?

here is what i am getting at

"Yet, imaging results found that women use areas on the right and left sides of the brain, while men only use areas on the left side to complete the test.
      Other research suggests that, on average, the female brain performs better on some skills while the male brain executes other tasks at a higher level. For example, tests show that women generally can recall lists of words or paragraphs of text better than men. On the other hand, men usually perform better on tests that require the ability to mentally rotate an image in order to solve a problem. Mental rotation is thought to help people find their way, according to researchers. Does that leave the majority of women lost? Obviously not. Scientists believe that women may rely on their memory advantage and recall landmarks to find a destination. "

Quoted from some website on developing gender specific medicine

The left side of the brain is for logic and the right is for creativeness

But from what you've quoted it doesn't suggest that you if you're good at logic you're not creative.

What you've quoted, is to do with gender.
