math vs language and keeping score

the reason why in school one could potentially score 100/100 in math but only 80/100 in history, languages or 'moral studies' is because unlike religion, language or human interactions, math has only one right answer. An answer will either be right or wrong, true or false, 1 or 0.
All my student life I thought it was a huge conspiracy that worked in the favor of smart people, I wish someone stepped in and told me this back then. I would probably have worked harder and even focused more on a given subject.
