I would never say chemistry and biology are difficult to grasp. There's just a lot of content. A bit like Medicine. The content itself is fine. But there's so much.


Maths on the other hand... relatively small amount of content but the workload needed to grasp everything is a lot compared to other subjects. Especially M2, M3, S2 and FP3. Those exams are just disgusting. With maths there's no 'knowing the book inside out'. You just have to be talented and remain calm when you see weird looking questions.

On a semi related note, at Uni level, Physics is probably one of the hardest courses in the world.

Yeah I think AFM is pointless if you're going to university it kinda spoils the fun of learning new-ish things

Why?
So many grammar rules to learn
So much vocabulary
So few hours

A guy in my class did maths and further maths at AS.
His grades for the 6 modules were AAAAAU. I remember him waking out at the end of the S2 exam swearing with teary eyes lol.

Apparently there's also an M4 and M5 but I doubt anyone dares take those.

Maths AS isn't bad. You never see people complaining about C1 or C2. It's people that take difficult modules in A2 further maths that get screwed.

Physics because it has a little bit of everything in it. Memory, common sense, interpretation...

Plus they can ask you unlimited questions that you've never seen before and it all comes down to the Exam Day. Art you can work on all year and keep improving your grade, putting you in a better position at the end of the year.

I'd say higher english - analysing of simple stuff ruins it for me, the amount of poems you have to learn before the final exam (6 POEMS, NO THANKS) and the fact that you have to remember so many quotes from a play/short story/novel for a timed essay. hate higher english with a passion and can't wait to drop it - I think a B at national 5/GSCE level is good enough.

english is too much work and stress for me.
