Chubbs, I'm going to have to disagree with you about this: I don't think it's always a case of 'not working hard enough'. I think our brains are just wired differently ........ some people just soak up and retain information with very little effort, whereas others(myself included), simply can't take scientific/technical stuff in at all. I have learned so much more from studies as a 'mature' student than I ever did when I was at school, BUT there were some subjects that no matter how much I wanted to learn about them, the information just wouldn't go in(tractor maintenance springs to mind!). It was almost like a switch flipping off in my head ....... the tutor might as well have been speaking in a foreign language.
Teachers are meant to better nowadays, so they say. not that 60 is that old,as no offence was intended

Disagree with me how dare you? ;)

I realise we all absorb different information at different levels with different amount of interest, I was commenting more towards the general attitude of kids at school. In some cultures going to school is a privilege and it is embraced, too many of our kids do not see it that way.

You are spot on about some people though, its always easier for some than others. I was a role model kid in PE (Physical Education), never missed a class, always volunteered and tried my best. The thing is no matter how hard I tried I was never above average in ability (A for effort, C for result). Then once I left school, I grew, became more skilled and learn't to control my arms and legs, I am now fitter, faster, more agile and adept at sports than the people around me of my age. Better late than never.

One thing though, Tractor Maintenance?? I am glad I did not go to your school. :)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Well, I got the first one right and then for the loooooongest time it looked as if that was the sum total of my scientific knowledge!
Eventually finished witha score of 17 :unsure:




(Obviously not the brightest explosion in the science lab!)

Haha! I didn't do Tractor Maintenance at school! That was my point: even though I was older and had chosen the subject as part of my Stud & Stable Husbandry course, it was something I really wanted to learn, in a very small group, with a patient tutor ....... the information would just not lodge itself in my brain.

I got 46/50, but one of them I only got wrong because I was clicking through too fast (question #36, an easy one too!).

The quiz was weighted towards physics and chemistry, which is my area of expertise.

I got 34/50, and I sucked in science...

Though, I always usually test well.  :unsure2:

If you want to learn how to not be afraid, ask.

I got 41, and all of that was retained from high-school.  I loved science and did really well with biology and meteorology.

I was really surprised I got 39 of 50 (40 of 50 if I I hadn't miss clicked the VERY last question, but I'll give the test my poor mousing skills lol). Super surprised actually. I think I was able to suss out a large number of them through educated guessing, a good background in medical and scientific Latin. The rest probably comes from watching Science Channel shows. LOL.
