I don't think there is a 'hardest' A-Level for everyone. It's all relative. Someone who is amazing at science/maths but terrible at writing/humanities would most likely find Chemistry easier than, say, English or History. And vice versa, I would just wager that there are more people better at the arts than sciences.

Really depends.
I know a lot of people think Chemistry is the hardest subject. It being my favourite, I find it the easiest out of all my subjects (Biology, Geography)
If someone made me do something like English Lit or History I would probably drop out of A level. Geography essays are bad enough.

I'd say photography or psychology. 'Artsy' subjects because you have such a large workload and its not always easy to come up with an idea but then psychology because of the amount of studies and evaluation points you have to remember

I'd say Physics because my brother did Physics as one of his A- Levels and he dropped the subject when he was in year 13. He was glad he did because he got 1 A and 2 A*s.

For me it'd be chemistry, physics, maths or further maths. I'm not gifted with them kind of things.
Same here; I think the 'hardest' A Levels are different for every person.

Further Maths or Chemistry. Nearly everyone that took Chemistry in my year said it was the toughest (most of them took Physics and Maths too)

depends what you are good at
English lit a level would kill my soul if I took that

Art is just time consuming, put the time into it and you'll do well

Further maths is difficult but as soon as you understand the concepts its good (also depends what units you do, as D1 is easy peasy)

Eng Lit was probably spawned by the devil

Chemistry the course isn't hard but in the exam they ask these stupid random ass questions. Further maths will hurt your head so it's.the hardest course.

depends if your crap at drawing, i think an art A level will kill you.
I mean I only done art GCSE and some people in my class worked so hard but if you haven't got the creativeness and decent drawing skills then you'll do pretty bad no matter what.

If i dont count things that need some natural talent to do really well in (I mean A or A*)
then chemistry or further maths A2 (from what i can see even though im in AS)

Me? I'd say any artistic subject like photography or graphics due to workload.
Hahahahahaahaha nice joke

Chemistry is absolutely the hardest A level, especially the A2.

Further Additional Maths obviously. No other subjects even have a 'further', let alone an additional further.
