     <option value="1">Danish</option>
     <option value="2">Mathematics</option>
     //There will then be many more after. & I work with Linq

Controllers -> createController.cs have i :

the problem is how how can I order it still looked after my own so that it is just to throw into the database when you sign up as users of the page.

In your create method, you need to populated the list of values from the database using SqlConnection or Entity Framework connection. You can then use ViewBag variable to send the data to the view. The code might look as below:

public ActionResult create()
var subjects  = dbContext.Subjects.ToList(); // if the Subjects is the table in the database
ViewBag.Subjects = new SelectList(subjects, "SubjectId", "SubjectName","");
return View();

This will give you the list of subject as ViewBag data in the create view.
In the view you can use either Select or DropDownList control to display the Subjects. For Select control you can use as below:
<select id="subjects" name="subjects" class="selectpicker show-tick form-control" title="">
@foreach (var item in ((IEnumerable<SelectListItem>)ViewBag.Subjects))

If you use DropDownList then you need to send the data from the controller view Model

@Html.DropDownListFor(m=>m.Subject, new SelectList(Model,"SubjectId","SubjectName"));

Hope this will help
