Physics is easy. Further maths isn't on the list. Other than that it is subjective.(Original post by tcameron)
I do Bio, Chem, Maths, Geography at AS currently.
I don't see how people think Chemistry is the hardest?!?! For me it is definately the easiest one and one I am doing the best in.
Further maths and Physics surely are more challenging A-levels than these.

Having done Chemistry to AS and now doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics, and Geography to A2, I can comfortably say that in order of difficulty they are;
With Chemistry being the hardest.

Having done Further maths, maths chemistry biology and economics to AS and Chemistry Biology and Maths to A level. Order for hardest would deffo be Chemistry, Biology Further maths economics maths.

I would say Psychology because of all the content that one has to learn and I don't think there is enough time in the exam to finish the papers fully.

I studied Maths, Chemistry, Psychology and Geography at AS level, but dropped maths at the end of AS as i had really struggled it whereas the other three i didn't really struggle with at AS, but i'm doing A2 at the moment and for me Chemistry is really hard however saying that i'm one of a few people in my year who struggle with it, the sciences are definitely going to be harder than humanities but there is less to learn so once you understand it you'll be fine, the best thing you can do when picking your a levels is just choose what you really enjoy at the moment, accept that it's going to be hard and that by the time you leave chances are your probably going to hate at least one of your subjects

I think there's a big difference between what's easy at AS level and what's easy at A level. I did Bio, Chem, Maths and English Lit for AS and for me (from easiest to most difficult):
4. English Lit (which is also the subject I did the worst in)
This year, everything is harder. I'm taking Maths, Chem and Bio and the jump from AS Bio to A2 Bio was pretty big. Different things are difficult about each one.
Personally I've always found Maths quite easy so it hasn't been much of a problem for me but I know a lot of people find it hard (especially the last unit).
In Chemistry I'm finding the last unit fairly straightforward - even if exam Qs are hard - but the organic chemistry unit is something that I'm not massively interested in so I'm finding it hard to learn all the reactions and mechanisms and stuff like that.
Biology is more complicated this year, and the volume of stuff you need to know is bigger. I'd say A2 Chem and Bio are pretty similar in difficulty and Maths is still my easiest subject, but it's all down to you and how much you enjoy/how good you are at each subject.
Everyone finds different aspects of different subjects hard so take a look at how you're doing in your GCSEs and think about what you really enjoy. Ask your teachers what's involved in the AS because if you're not interested in it then it's an awful lot harder to do well in it!

in my opinion? physics, maths and chemistry; I did politics, english language, history and philosophy and got mostly As in these, but I got an E in chemistry. I didn't even attempt maths or physics.

This poll reveals nothing!
It really all depends on how your mind works. I find Chemistry (I do OCR Chemistry A) so easy because there is little memorising; once you understand the principles then all you have to do is apply it. However I find Biology EXTREMELY difficult because it is so content-heavy, and I suck at memorising stuff. OCR Biology is one of those subjects where you have to always think about how your answer is structured, what words you are using, and the details you are including - it's very specific.
Chemistry is a breeze compared to Biology (for me, anyway).
But a word of advice: don't let these polls dictate/influence what subject you are going to pick for your A-levels. If you enjoy your subject, chances are you will do pretty well in it anyway. Don't be a p***y.
