A statistically inept person could go to the ALIS study, see a huge perecentage get A's in Further Maths, and therefore conclude it is the easiest subject by far

I can't believe anyone would actually vote geography it is noe of the easiest subjects! It's a complete repeat form GCSE. Personally I would say Chemistry or Maths.

I don't know why you're all continuing with this. Everyone will be adept in different subjects and find others more challenging depending on their interests and mental faculities. There is no clear-cut way of establishing the "most difficult subject". Heck, even for 10 people doing the same subjects, chances are they'd each name a different subject as being the most difficult, as long as none of them are from the Grade 7 syllabus or something (which I assure you, they're not).

Music is much harder than most people give it credit for. For a start you have to be able to play an instrument to a high standard (which takes years of practice), and write your own compositions to a resaonable standard, and sit a 2.5 hour listening paper at the end of the year, covering anything and everything from the 15th century to now. I have no idea how it is ranked equally with the likes of Psychology :eek:
I completley agree with you.

The composition and the compositional technique papers were really hard.

Many people just think that with music, all you do is listen to CD's, which isn't true at all. Music needs to be given more credit I think.

I totally agree. As someone who is Science based in her A-level choices i've never studied Music but i have the upmost respect for anyone who has... A few of my friends study it and -Bugger me- it looks hard going!

I am not sure why it is not.

Perhaps he/she who made this thread thought it was too easy.

chemistry is by far the most difficult subject, for me. Biology comes quite naturally, and although no one takes every single A level, I can't imagine anything comparing to chem. I need an A in it to get into uni.

Biology would be disgusting. I voted for chemistry but that's because I don't do it in timetabled lessons - complicated, but anyway, I get much much less chemistry time than anyone else does. Hence it's all rushed and meehhh.
