Student or Learner
I generally get confuse in such situation..I think it should be come to my mind.
When we were instructed that we have to select any topic related to environment for the project, lots of topics come to the mind.
Thanks and Regards
The topics came to mind - past time, past tense.
I can say that things 'come (in)to my mind', but the normal idiomatic expression is come to mind.
