    In September I will be starting A-level maths, physics, chemistry and biology. Pretty much everyone who I have talked to have said that these are the hardest subjects I could have took and how I will have such a phenomenal workload that I won't be able to have a social life but is it really THAT vigorous and THAT difficult?
    I will be doing the same as you in September, but will be doing Economics instead of Physics. I have also heard that it is really hard- but you just need to make sure you keep on top of everything and you will be fine.

    Hope that's a joke, Media requires creativity more so than actual intelligence, it is exceptionally easy if you have a passion for it but I wouldn't recommend taking it as a subject if you want to take it up as a career, it will put you off and almost serves no purpose.
    I'm sorry... Apparently I needed to include a sarcasm sign in my post

    Oh worries, I already knew that, just voicing my hatred of Media despite me actually doing it for A Levels because I would have had to do BTEC Business instead as my school has awful bloody options.

    And that is your opinion. I have not taken the subjects as of now so I am yet to form my own.

    Maths is practice and Biology memorisation, but with Biology expose yourself to past paper, application questions early so it doesn't come as a shock in the real exams

    Chemistry, idk I don't feel like I give great advice with chemistry. I go fairly well with it, and if anything it's the subject I'm more confident in. Tbh it's probably more to do with me telling myself 'chemistry is my forte, nothing can screw me over in chemistry' since GCSE

    physics is a pretty average subject in terms of difficulty, biology is so easy though, its just a memory game and i thought as maths was quite nice tbh, but a2 is a *****. And i have heard chem is a ***** too :L

    Maths and biology is easy, further maths and chemistry are known as the hardest subjects. Physics is good at AS but is apparently hard in the second year!

    Im currently doing the same as you, yes it is hard but if you use your time well to do homework and revision it will be good.

    Mate, I did geography, biology, chemistry and psychology at AS. I now do chemistry, biology and geography. Psychology was legit my most difficult A level to the point where I had to drop it after AS.

    No. Tbh, because I've spoken to people doing hard subjects. Maths Chemistry Biology and Physics are a lot of work, but not that much more than other subjects. People just assume that because they're sciences, it must be so much more work. The hardest A levels in their opinion would be:

    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics
    English Lit

    I am doing these same subjects and sotting my as levels now. They are difficult and you should be absolutely sure you want to do them before you start. However if youre good at these subjects and (very) hard working you should be able to cope completely fine. Good luck.
