What was your favourite subject at school?

And did your passion for it continue into your adult life?

Mine, as a Mickey Mouse human being, was Media Studies. Long shots, diegetic sound, close ups, mise-en-scene, love the lot of it.

I am still into media and I still enjoy the study of it

Would’ve loved to have gone to a school that offered media studies. Mind you, I still managed to become a massive pseud without it.

History was my favourite. I ended up studying Archaeology and I have a keen interest in history to this day so yeah, I continued it on.

PE/Games when we played football would be my favourite individual classes, and things like art and CDT were fun, but maths was probably the class that I enjoyed the most throughout all of school.

Eng Lang and Foreign Language are the same, obviously.

Loved english language and literature, did it up to a levels and the advanced extension award which was an extra exam on top of alevels for any nerds like me. Didnt do it at uni tho and took the biology route, though my english grade was better. I genuinely enjoyed my homework and the creative bit, still love literature and writing and do it for fun

I put down IT - I’m an oldie, so my schooldays were pre-internet, and I imagine that whatever IT means to me means something completely different to someone five years younger than me, and is radically different to kids now.

Anyway, I’m still dicking around on computers all day at work, and tonight I’m going to dick around on Ableton, so yeah, I guess you could say I continued with it.

Biology, obvs. Also enjoyed geography a lot and weirdly Latin was good fun (Romans and stuff).

Art and yes, i am an artist

English most of the way through school (which encompassed Lang and lit) then in 6th form just Lang because the teacher p much sat there and chatted away and was generally extremely entertaining, whereas the lit teacher was prickly and irritable and we mainly sat in silence.

It would have been tonnes better if my school did photography.

Used to love GCSE art. Was just drawing and having a laugh, was in a class with 2 of my best mates. Teacher used to play really quirky music out the speakers too. Good fun

Never do any art anymore sadly

English literature, without a doubt. It felt like the only subject at school where we were actually learning and understanding how people end up being the people they are. Did it at university, still read fiction almost every day.

Didn’t really get on with sentence structure or anything like that so English language always felt like a drag, and the two were mostly taught together. Boo.

I think it might actually have been biology over chemistry, because school level chemistry is pretty dull. Chose it as a degree because it seemed like it had potential* to get more interesting.

I wouldn’t be the patent twat I am today without it.

I liked biology because it was just remembering stuff and I’m good at remembering stuff. Dropped it twice at a-level for stupid reasons

This is so true. Even my undergrad was just about remembering stuff.

History and I went on to do it as a degree.

Beyond the standard transferable skills and some handy knowledge of bits and pieces of industrial development and economics I don’t really use it in my job.

Still watch the odd tv program and read the occasional book, but you don’t get the really in depth stuff from those.
