Use this thread to list each of your subjects - no matter what year level - from favourite to least favourite. You can keep adding to the list as you progress, and then, eventually, also make a list for your uni subjects. :D

HSC, VCE, QCE, Year 10, Year 11, Year 12 - it's all good!

I'm going to start by ranking all of my VCE subjects from favourite to least favourite.

1. English Language 3&4
2. Visual Communication Design 3&4
3. Health and Human Development 3&4
4. Psychology 3&4
5. Visual Communication Design 1&2
6. English Language 1&2
7. Psychology 1&2

--- considerable gap ---

8. Maths Methods 1&2
9. Art 1&2
10. Further Maths 3&4
11. Business Management 3&4
12. Business Management 1&2

A pretty clear preference for Year 12 subjects at the top end, which is (kinda) interesting. How about you?

1. IT Applications 3/4
2. Further Maths 3/4
3. General Maths 1/2
4. Business Management 1/2
5. HHD 3/4
6. Business Management 3/4
7. Phys Ed 3/4
8. HHD 1/2
9. Phys Ed 1/2
10. English 1/2
11. English 3/4
12. Chemistry 1/2

Absolutely hated Chemistry and changed it to IT Apps for Year 12. Best decision I ever made. Isn't it interesting my top subjects are now my teaching method areas :P I think the teacher I had also had a massive influence on this order as well. IT Apps is only up the top because I enjoyed what I was doing... otherwise it'd be Further.
