    Aww, that's awesome! Where are you from?
    A2's going well for me, i mean i find chemistry quite hard but i just need to do a bit more work i guess haha, you?
    I'm applying for medicine, what about you?
    Omg I'm applying for Medicine too! I'm from Moscow, where are you from? Ah right, I find chemistry pretty good because I love it so much, further maths and physics on the other hand are quite quite hard
    Where have you applied for Medicine?

    Oh my Goooood, that's amazing!
    I'm from Moscow too, i was born in Moldova but i grew up there and it's my most favourite place on Earth <3
    I don't find chemistry that exciting haha but i do love the new topics we're doing so maybe it's not too late to change my mind! Awww, regret dropping further so much, i loved that subject! Physics i was never amazing at to be fair, so i admire you for being brave enough to do it at A level xD
    UCL (not heard from them yet), Imperial (rejected), KCL (had an interview), Barts (interview next week), how about you?

    Wow I have an interview at Barts next week too (28th at 3) when's yours?I was rejected from Imperial too! UCL hasn't replied to me yet either and I have an interview at Exeter in March! Haha we are so alike! I'm not that great at physics, but I just looked at the course and there's a lot of topics from further maths (mechanics) at A2 so I thought it'd be good. I agree, I love Moscow too! I recently went back actually and it was great, didn't snow though

    Mine's on the 29th at 2:20, so close Gosh, I actually can't belive it, we're too similar, it's like you're my twin xD Even the unis we applied to are the same except Exeter/King's haha wow!
    I haaaaaaaated mechanics when i did it in further! It was a nightmare. My only B (77 ums) out of 6 maths modules i did, such a shame But to be honest i didn't even think i'd get a B so i'm happy haha. How can you even do physics, i actually don't understand
    Awhh, i hope i can go in march (Easter holidays) to see my family and friends I miss snow so much haha

    Easiest to hardest:

    Travel and Tourism
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Geography
    French

    But I probably find geography so hard because it's my favourite so I do so much extra work for it, and psychology is quite easy at my sixth form purely because the teachers are amazing and the sociology teachers are crap!

    Biology is the hardest by far out of all the sciences for me. Then Physics, and Chemistry is pretty fun

    Personally I find chemistry the easiest and get the best results in it compared to my other subjects. I definitely agree with the graph that biology and physics are the hardest

    Rank your A-Level subjects in order of difficulty (i.e. easiest to hardest).

    N.B. I have attached an image of the ranking of A-Level subjects in order of difficulty. How far do you agree with it?

    Just to let you know, it's from a report published by Durham University in 2008.

    It's interesting to read this thread, as I'm going to try self teach Maths, FM, Physics and possibly Chemistry so it's intriguing seeing how everyone ranks them.

    I'm really lacking motivation to study at the minute but I have a thread about my progress https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4233122. I'd appreciate any advice you all may have, as you are all either doing or have done A-levels

    Hardest is physics without doing A level maths. Seriously, they shouldn't allow anyone to take up physics without taking up A level maths.

    IT is definitely not 'harder' that psychology or economics.
