    Most Enjoyable Subjects(1=favourite)

    1.Biology - love the subject, great teacher. There's definitely a lot to remember, but I do really find it interesting.
    2.Geography - again, the subject interests me, and we have good teachers. Well, we have an amazing teacher for human geog, and quite a good teacher for physical geog, so it averages out :P
    3.Chemistry - I do like chemistry but so far it's all fairly basic, and I like going into a lot of depth in my subjects. We do have a really good teacher though, and I'm looking forward to going into more depth.
    4.Maths - I have absolutely nothing against maths - solving some equations is quite therapeutic when you've had a morning of practicals - I just prefer my other subjects.

    Hardest Subjects(1=hardest)

    These are in terms of current difficulty - maths and chemistry are easing us in gently by starting with topics we more or less covered at GCSE, so they're obviously seem quite a bit easier right now.

    1. Biology - the concepts aren't too hard, it's just there's SO MUCH TO MEMORISE AND SO MANY LONG WORDS AND I FEEL LIKE I'M DROWNING HALP. No, but in all seriousness, A-level biology totally different from GCSE. A lot more enjoyable, yes, but definitely harder.
    2. Chemistry - so far, chemistry hasn't actually been too hard, it's just occasionally a bit of a struggle getting my head around things at first, and I suppose it's harder than maths and geog.
    3. Maths - at the moment we're covering topics I've already studied, whether at GCSE or in my own time, so it's not too bad yet. I've been reliably informed it gets worse though.
    4. Geography - it doesn't feel like too much of a step up from GCSE, we covered the topics (in less detail) in year 8, and it's being taught well, so overall I'm finding it easy enough.
    EXACTLY THE SAME HERE ABOUT BIOLOGY
    I mean it's really cool and all but it feels kind of like last year I was taught to swim in the shallow end with armbands and they've suddenly chucked me into the deep end and expected me to be able to swim So much detail and so much depth and it all has to be learnt - think I might die

    Yeah in Maths i'm doing M1 ( sometime after Christmas) and in FM i'm doing D1 (which i hate) FP1 and M2 all 1 hour a week every week ... so i'm sure how logical it is to learn M2 before M1 but i'll see how it goes :lol:

    It depends on what it's on, how much knowledge you have to write it and if you're going to do it in one whole block or if you're going to do bits at a time
