well you may have heard recently student have been told to ditch "soft option" alevels such as ICT, drama, gov and politics, media studies (btw i may be wrong here with this brief list). All alevels have a relative degree of ifficulty but i would say the "harder" ones are F maths, maths and the sciences
It depends on the person really and whether you are better at the arts or the sciences. From what I've heard though I'd say of the sciences it would have to be f.maths and of the arts probably History/English lit.
Economics is considered a better A level than Business Studies but if you applied for an Economics degree then usually they'd ask for maths A level rather than economics. Though I think it depends on whether you apply for the BA or BSc for whether they want maths A level or not.

Deciding what the hardest A level is is subjective
exactly, eg drama is seen as a soft option. But unless you can act and know some good dramatical terms, can write for an hour on the acting conditions in 16th and 17th century theatre and understand what i mean when i say "the first A2 piece we are doing incorporates techniques taken from Brecht, Artaud and Stanislavski focused arounds Esslins theories of absurdism "
and more that i cant be bothered to write its gonna be a pretty rough ride for you lol!
Personally, I found Edexcel History to be an ABSOLUTE BITCH to do, whereas I just swanned through English Literature and Politics on natural ability. I only got 512/600 (pending remark of suspiciously low unit) on that, as opposed to 550 for Eng Lit and 556 for Politics.
