I always thought that, even though it was taught by Snape, Potions would be my favorite class at Hogwarts. I look at it as reading a recipe and then adding your own flair. And I love to cook.
But then, I thought---"OH GOD, it's the wizarding version of chemistry! And I am NOT a fan of chemistry! In fact, chemistry doesn't really like me either."
So, I starting thinking about the other classes offered at Hogwarts and their American high school equivalents:
-Care of Magical Creatures---Vet Tech program
-History of Magic---History
-Herbology---biology or horticulture
Other classes: Defense Against the Dark Arts, Flying, Divination, Study of Ancient Runes
(So maybe Potions is the equivalent of Home Ec?)
I wanted to know what I'd excel at if I was a witch (if---more like when! When am I getting my Hogwarts letter?!?!?!) So, I looked for a quiz online. And wouldn't you know, I found it on a friend's wall on facebook. Thank you Buzzfeed for helping me find out what would be my best subject at Hogwarts. Now, I know for some best subject and favorite class aren't necessarily the same thing, but generally for me, I do better at classes I like and vice versa.
And my results:
I like that. I can deal with charms. And honestly, in my head, that is my second favorite class. Third being transfiguration. I think Professor McGonnagal would be hard, but awesome to learn from!
You can take the quiz here to see what your best subject would be.
