Subjects at school you were good in

I had the opposite problem with essay writing, I had difficulty with hand writing and could never write fast enough. My essays were always very short. I sucked at English literature, because we had a task where we had to interpret an unseen piece of poetry or prose, and I couldn't do this task, so always got low grades.

Yep.  I have the same problem with not writing fast enough in exams.  I'm also terrible at unseen stuff, but I think it's more of a problem because of the pressure of exams and timing.  If I have no time limit, I am good at making up some meaning about a poem.

@Nesf, yes they were school subjects back in my day lol, I did the typing and office practice in the last two years of school, art was all five years of secondary school.

English and music. 

My favorite courses in college were both music but one was an elective for non music major students. Music History and Pop/Rock/Jazz class. a

I love music.  It has saved me, so I figured I owed it to myself to study it for a degree. :)

Music and art for me at school. Gave me some much needed confidence, because I am naturally very good in those areas. Now I'm studying an advanced diploma in composition and I'm a professional composer :) (after coming to my senses and not becoming a lawyer, although I got a masters degree in law).

Science, Math, Music and computer classes. Later years included Band, Biology and Chemistry and but not physics. I tried honors English on and off but it was not my cup of tea. I good high grades in all subjects except in PE which still makes me mad. A person with Asthma and Asperger's who is clumsy and not very coordinated is probably not going to be successful at very many sports. If I had been graded on participation instead of skill level that would have made PE actually fun. Instead i always felt so defeated.

I have a classmate from college going to University of Oregon this fall to start the masters program for a masters degree in musicology. So cool.

English and other languages (including Latin).

I was never in the top stream for maths but I ended up studying it at university. Maybe I felt I had something to prove. :)

With science I tended to do better with the theoretical stuff rather than the practicals (mainly because of the dreaded words "find yourself a partner"). Things were a lot better at chemistry A-level, however, because the class was small enough for us to work individually.
