    I'm voting Music, since you have to have true talent and have to put in a lot of work to get an A.

    My hardest subject is either English lit or history- it varies- but I'd find something creative like art or music the hardest because I have no creativity whatsoever! :p:

    My hardest subject is French - just because of the sheer volume of stuff you have to learn for the oral exams. And yes, its worse than Chemistry!

    Music definitely. Even though I've got grade 8 piano and violin, you have to be good at so many different things to be able to do well in in - composing, listening, harmony exercises, essay writing, studying pieces in stupid amounts of detail as well as performing. And at my school because of the stupid timetable, we get 1 lesson less a week than all the other subjects to do a full AS/A2 course.

    I'd have to say Biology too, personally. Although that's because of the teaching methods at my college. The teachers are far more interested in finishing the syllabus and giving us handouts than actually TEACHING.

    I find Chemistry the easiest of my subjects because the teacher makes it easy for us. I do Bio Chem, Maths, English Lit and Critical Thinking. English Lit only challenges me when I feel lazy, to be honest, and Maths is hard at times, but I find it easy to get my head around because it's very structured.

    theres no maths on the poll.

    i like the fact that i do 2 languages (3rd hardest according to poll) and chemistry (hardest) lol. oh and two maths, but thats not on there. i like a challenge it seems...

    i think i have to agree with the rest of you about chem though, it seems to be the hardest, but i think thats because i dont enjoy it as much and i dont absorb it as easily as my other subjects
