I'd English because you can have fantastic c/w grades but then if you mess up the exam you are in trouble ~
for me a hard subject means = hardest to get a good grade
So it is either History or English ~
depends on the person too.. only one challenging is maths due to a history of broken learning - otherwise id be as comfortable at maths at science.. id say english is quite hard and btec ict sucks due to the sheer amount of cw but thats what you expect from a crap btec lol

Personally, I'd find something like Art awful, and I know I wouldn't be able to get a good grade in it. Well, there's no way I'd get an A*, or an A most likely. And I wouldn't enjoy it either, I can't do art. I might be able to get a C or something, but nothing higher, I'd think. However I'm sure during the 2 year course I'd improve, but y'know. However, I know some amazing artists in my year, that love and are really enthusiastic about it.
However, I'm more of a sciencey/mathsy person. I can do Maths this year with no major problems, and the same with Chemistry for the most part. I'm not saying they're not hard, cos parts of them are, they're just not very hard to me. But equally I know some people who can't stand maths and would never do the A-Level in a million years, and only did the GCSE cos they had to.
So, I'd say Art overall personally. But out of the GCSEs I did I'd say Literature-well, it was my only A for a start (though I've recently realised I probably could've managed to get an A* if I'd put more effort in and thought about it more), and I didn't enjoy it too much. But really, I'm not going to vote as everyone will have different opinions on the matter-I'm sure there're some people on here that could get an A* in Art GCSE with no problem, and others that would struggle to even get a C in maths.
This is obviously really subjective, but I reckon something like English Lit is the hardest to achieve top grades in. However, I may only be saying that 'cause I wasn't used to revising for English, and the mocks were a bit of a wake up call. My best subject ended up being my worst result...
Art - because you need to be good at it (AND enjoy it too) or you'll get screwed up. I wasn't good at it and didn't enjoy doing the coursework (it took up most of my time) so I ended up with a B. Well, it was either Art or Child Development.
I'm finding English Lit the hardest. I got a D in the mock, which was my lowest grade. I find the stuff we have to study for the exam really hard to understand, especially the poems. That means I also have a lot of difficulty writing essays that are long enough! But I think my coursework is quite good, so hopefully that'll raise my final grade to a C or B.
I hate chemistry with a passion, proven by my grade D's in it as apposed to my A*'s in Biology and Physics. Also, drama is a tough subejct to get a high grade in, the coursework element is terrible if you're aiming high and you need a really nice examiner to watching your final piece, otherwise your drama grade is pratically doomed.

Latin! so much poetry to remember
Too right! Typically, the ones we concentrated on in class were ignored on the paper... what poems did you have to learn?
I actually voted for Science, if only because it was my worst grade Predicted A*A*, got BB...I blame my complete inability to understand Chemistry after year 9, and an unlucky Blodge paper. Oh well, if one won't revise, what can they expect?!
Surprised at the number of people answering English...
