design/art will take up the most time, but may be enjoyable.
History/English are the hardest...
History/English Literature/any MFL.
I do History and English and Latin is so much harder than both of them, it just kills me.
Art was ok, but jeez did it take up a lot of time - so it was hard in that respect.
Philosophy was hard too, so much reading!
I guess a lot of people would say History, but I love it and find that I get my best marks there; personally I'd say English Lit.
I don't really think that the answers to this thread are going to be particularly useful, nobody here is going to have studied every single humanities subject in order to give an accurate response! And whether a subject is 'hard' or not is entirely subjective!
I do English Lit and Geography, and find I struggle more at Geography than English. But they are both hard. Geography is mainly banter though!
I've studied English, History and Philosophy at college and I can assure you that Philosophy is the hardest humanities A-Level by a mile. It requires a great deal of extra reading and it exercises your logic in a way no other humanities subject can. It's complete hell if you aren't a very logical person, but it is an interesting and well-respected A-Level. I thoroughly enjoyed History, and it was the subject I got my highest mark in. If you master the essay-writing techniques and do your revision there is no reason why you shouldn't do well. Both English Language and English Literature are difficult, and to be fair the examiners can be quite dodgy sometimes but it pales in comparison to Philosophy.
Overall they're all brilliant A-Levels and you should be very proud if you've come out with a grade in any of them.
History hands down. so much content to learn, shortly followed by geography and then R.E.
I do History Geography RS (and DT)
DT takes the most timely a long way!
History can be difficult to get to grips with the exam tekkers
geography there is a lot of remember but once you understand the themes it's ok.
RS (Philiosophy and Ethics) the exam questions can be very specific and ambiguous! (Well at least for OCR)
History, for me. Definitely the most time-consuming.
