Case studies, same day essays, research papers, coursework, and other academic assignments make almost every student nervous. But while some weight no more than 5% of the final grade, others have a greater influence. For instance, term papers, projects, and final exams are evaluated as no less than 30% of your overall grade.
Of course, the complexity level depends on skills and abilities of each student. However, we collected several responses to find out the top most complicated assignments randomly selected students have ever faced.
At the seventh grade, I used to challenge poetry task which was too difficult to read. I could barely understand a phrase. In addition, we had to write something similar.
I am not that kind of guy who experiences difficulties with essays, but that one was a nightmare. I am no Robert Frost, but I managed to survive after writing on “aging and teen problems”.
Liberal education is worth it, but, on the whole, I believe engineering and construction planning is the hardest possible assignment any student can face. A fair share of the great books and manuals were the only tools that helped me out. Any engineering case involves a plenty of calculus and physics problems to solve.
I guess no essay can be compared with this trouble in terms of complexity.
Studying Foreign Languages
No matter how hard I tried, I failed my Spanish course. I did well in submitting English and Literature essays, but I couldn’t memorize a word in Spanish. I know that this language is considered the easiest to learn, but, perhaps, I just don’t have a talent for studying the secondary language.
Every Spanish task was the hardest challenge for my entire education.
Anglo-Saxon Piece of Writing
Despite English is my mother language, it was a terrible experience. Defining this phenomenon was not that difficult, but when it came to preparing some biography, I’ve got stuck. Many historical facts I needed to complete my paper were missed in the book. The access to Internet then was not that spread. After exploring more details and adding as many facts as possible, I still ended up with a D.

Model of a Fort
For my Design class, I was once asked to project a fort of nothing but popcicle sticks. Trust me, written assignments have nothing to do with this challenge. In addition, no web sources or books are able to help. We only had three weeks for that tricky thing. All of the instructions were messy: glue kept falling off of the sticks, none of my teammates did better than I.

US history is not that long, but still it makes a lot of students nervous. Probably, that is because of many of students have some difficulties in understanding English.
The project was about Hitler’s propaganda. Fortunately, my teacher helped with step-by-step instructions. In the end, I learned a lot about Hitler’s policies, historians views on propaganda and both American and German background at that period of time. I believe I did not waste my time.
