English is my second language so I'll probably have some mistakes. If so please don't hesitate to detect it and notify me. Trying to obtain full scholarship to college so please be kind and write a response. Thank you.

Subjects that I excel in are mathematics, science, social studies, computers, and chemistry. These subjects were simply understandable for me because they were pretty much straight forward. There were not any tricks to solving problems and if there were, you can easily figure it out and come up with an answer.

In my elementary years, I recall being the primary student to always complete the multiplication, addition, subtraction, and division quiz sheets and perform very well on all of them. What aided me to pass these quizzes with such high scores is my ambition to stay after school to receive additional help if I didn't understand a problem or didn't know how to solve a problem. By constantly striving to obtain more assistance, I significantly enhanced my scores for tests and quizzes. In one of my teacher's classrooms had a quote saying, "Obvious is the most dangerous word in mathematics." said by E.T. Bell. What this quote meant to me was if a problem appeared to be too simple or easy than you are not dealing with mathematics. This changed my concept of math from simple to more complex and diverse. When I approached problems, I would approach them deliberately so that I knew what kind of method I'd be using to solve the problem with.

Middle school was when I first had a science class. Science has been proven to be everywhere and on everything similar to atoms. The way I excelled in science greatly was by reaching further depth into the subject and detecting every aspect of it. The exceedingly supported me to apprehend the subject more distinctly. Researching all current information about science helped me pass my class with an A or sometimes B. I would participate in every lab that is being demonstrated and ask questions along the way. I would take notes accordingly with the teacher and compute further acquired facts to understand the information clearly. Math and science have something to do with engineering, so I strive to do my very best in both classes.

Social studies was a bit more difficult for me to formulate in my brain only because I'm from another country. Learning the history of a country you have no knowledge of can be challenging at times. But I'm fortunate enough that I had no knowledge of my own country because I was young and there weren't any schools to educate me, therefore, its easier for me to originate with a country that I'm clueless about and then later on in life, I can educate myself of my country. That was just a small obstacle that prevented me from excelling in the class. But I persevered and learned everything that I can about the history of the United States. I evoked with some C's and D's but did not quit until I received A's and B's. As I was going up a grade, social studies became much more easier and my grades stayed consistently at A's and B's.

My first computer class was in the 7th grade. I knew I was going to admire that class because at my younger age I used to love playing games on the computer, which I still do, but intend to do more useful commodities on it. I had no idea there were so much factual information about everything on the internet and what you can accomplish by using Microsoft. That curiosity of mine is what drove me to passing the class with a straight A+. I recall being the fastest typist in my 10th grade class. For an apparent reason my classmates did not believe I could type that fluently because of a stereotype mentioned by a classmate referring it to me. I took offense to that but did not tolerate it to bother me. My teacher was impressed by me and I passed the class and that's what all matters at the end.

By being part of the STEP program in school is what enrolled me into taking chemistry at college level. I speculated chemistry to be a challenging course, especially at college level but turned out to be cushy. I'm not trying to sound all arrogant but that's how the class absconded for me. Don't get me wrong, I struggled through the first week but then quickly changed up my act and stayed focused through the duration of the course. I wrote down beneficial notes so when it comes to test taking, I may utilize the notes to support me through the test. This considerably increased my chances of getting the answer correct. The professor secretly as told me that I'm one of the top three students in her class and that if I ever needed a recommendation, she'll be glad to write one for me.

I probably have already pointed out the factors that contributed to my success but I'll explain more of them. My teachers and professors exceedingly attributed to my success by aiding me through every problem or question that I have. They all have similar goals for their students and that's to help us succeed in life and imply their work of study into our daily lives. They will never give up on you and they'll always push you toward greater things in life and help you achieve them. A relative of mine that has always had high expectations from me was my cousin, Osman Hassan. He constantly would ask me how my grades were and tell me that he exclusively requires nothing but A's on my report card. He would also reward me if I had A's and B's. That was a whit of booster to help me receive more A's and B's on the report card.

.... I feel you need to improve presentation a little bit.
Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Computer, and Chemistry are the subjects I excelled and still continue to excel. I found these subjects pretty straight forward and logical. They do not require me to memorize things by heart and therefore I love find so much enthusiasm in them.

I kind of figured that was an issue but do you find the rest of the essay interesting or a good essay? And I thank you for your adjustment.

.... sounds a bit too detailed . It gives an effect that you try to boast ... I think you should not leave room for the reader to get that feeling as it might work for your disadvantage.

In the elementary school, I was always the first to complete mathematical puzzles.
By the way, What's your prompt? I can provide you with more meaningful comments if I see it :)

Ok the prompt is: Discuss the subjects in which you excel or have excelled. To what factors do you attribute your success?

"A relative of mine that has always had high expectations from me was my cousin, Osman Hassan.He constantly would ask me how my grades were and tell me that he exclusively requires nothing but A's on my report card. He would also reward me if I had A's and B's."

Instead, maybe you can say: moreover, a cousin of mine has played a significant role in my successes; he has provided me with incentives to learn and encouraged me to do my best.
