    Hmm, for me difficulty is largely proportional to how unenjoyable something is.

    Hence, in order of most difficult (1) to least difficult (5) this is how it goes:

    1. Chemistry - Cannot emphasise enough how crap it is.
    2. Physics - Love it for the most part but electricity in Unit 1 infuriates me, majorly.
    3. Further Maths - There are some difficult concepts to grasp which are never introduced in GCSE or conventional GCE Maths, nevertheless, the sheer genius of it all just compensates for the difficulty.
    4. Music - I am very competent theoretically in Music aswell as literally when it comes to writing comparitive essays so naturally this isn't one of my weak points. Plus I just generally love Music
    5. Maths - The best subject. Ever.

    I don't really like practical Science, I'm much more of a "pen and paper" person.

    Further Maths : Couldn't find any tutor to help me with my problems here. That is why a bit tough.

    Physics and Maths were quite easy. Not much of a problem.

    Maths = I like it but i dont concentrate on it as much

    Physics = hardest subject in the world. I wished I didnt take it in the first place. But I didnt want to drop it because giving up is for losers

    History - my essay writing skills are just awful
    Politics - ideologies this year, not liking it, miss all the Parliament and Supreme Court stuff!
    English Literature - okay, a lot of freedom in terms of coursework, which is nice.

    Had you asked me last year:

    Maths - I spent half the year crying into my books becaus it was so hard. Never again. Also, instead of using actual numbers and numeracy, you spend a good chunk of the course finding the damned value of x.
    History - big jump from GCSE. And every time I did something wrong in an essay, my teacher would have no problems in pointing it out, but when I asked her WHAT I did wrong, she never told me. No wonder the whole classs got crap marks! We never knew what we were doing wrong!
    English Lit/Politics - pretty easy, no revision for English and I got a B!

    Chemistry
    French
    Spanish
    Further Maths

    tbh, i'm finding these no trouble reeli except physics :/
    you just need to step back from it. physics is basically a cut down version of maths. a lot of the time you can simply look at the units and work out what equations to use. and you get (or ar least we did) a very useful formula booklet.


    seriously as soon as you start on past papers and think about it logically it'll become one of your easiest subjects

    1. Politics. Purely for the exam technique, I physically cannot write fast enough >,< But it's easy enough otherwise.
    2. Chemistry. Not hard, but I seem to forget it easily xD
    3. Biology. Just memorisation.
    4. Maths. Did most of it last year in the FSMQ, so it's just revision at the moment.
