    PE - because the theory is fine but to get top marks in the practical which is worth 60%, you have to be pretty awesome and the teachers have to love you.

    As far as I can see, Maths, English and English Lit are the hardest ones to get an A* in, they're extremely mean with them in those subjects for some reason.

    To get an A* for English Lit. Languages are generally the hardest
    I didn't study @ all for lit.... i was planning on a B/C.... in the exam i just wrote my opinion and I got an A*..... No studying involved ... probably studying makes u write someone else's opinion.. don't know, but 3 others who ddnt study got A's.. so yeah :P

    I think statistically the hardest subjects to get an A* in are latin and english literature - only 5% get an A* in english lit, which is quite low.

    Though it seems art is fairly hard to get an A* in too so hmm.

    Personally I found english literature hardest - i had to work like a badman to get a good grade in that.

    Music :/ (As you can probably tell :p: )

    And I heard terrible things about Product Design from most people who did it. One got an A*, 2 got an A, handful of Bs but mainly Cs in my school.

    Systems and Control - impossibly hard, exams just guess the answers, cos you have to spend so much time on coursework, you do very little theory work so don't know anything for the exams!

    I thought History was the hardest subject at GCSE, one of our papers was on Medicine Through Time and Germany 1918-1945 and I thought I completely mucked it up. Still got an A though

    English Literature was also every hard for me, but it clicked eventually

    Probably Science, Statistics or History - I went on to do History AS and I'm doing A2 and found it a lot harder than GCSE, though.
