    You wouldn't know as you can't be studying more than one course.

    EDIT: oh sheeet, you mean course course not degree course, apologies. In which case I have nothing to add, except that ec201 is a lot easier than ec102

    Econs gotta be up there, and Econmetrics. Most things maths related. Law is solid too.

    Stuff like anthropology and human resourcing must be easier, but then ppl are wired differenly, so an economist couldnt do aswell as an anthrpologist in anthropology, and visa versa

    Easiest: 1st year History and IR courses

    Hardest: Any of the Mathematics courses Basically. EC221 and other Econometrics courses are generally seen as tough.

    Easy: Anthropology, Sociology, accounting, mangement etc. Although I have to say EC210 is turning out to be a bit of a joke!

    i got 25% more in a maths course than econ course, so dont know what you mean.

    and EC210 a joke? i had <50 for the first hand in. in fact i had twice as many marks for ec202 first hand in than ec210. do you really find it that easy?

    EC210 is very easy in my opinion. The models are very basic in my opinion. I cant remember leaving a lecture confused or unsure of what was said. very straight forward homework/exam questions as well.
    I think Ec102 was actually harder in many ways...

    It depends how you define difficulty. Some courses that cover some advanced material don't make exams too difficult, and some courses with a standard syllabus have unpredictable exams. As a general rule, theoretical courses are more difficult than applied courses. Personally, I would guess that statistics courses might be the most difficult -- stochastic processes, time-series etc.

    Easiest? I don't know. Quite a few people take that first-year logic module as their outside option...just saying...
    Ye i think accounting is also a popular outside option

    PH101 is top for firsts and in top 10 most failed iirc.

    IS143 is pretty easy as modules go. There is a nasty 5000 word assessed coursework but if you put some thought into it and don't leave until the last week you should get a 1st.

    AC100 content-wise is pretty easy too. It's just techniques, after all. The trouble is that it's incredibly boring and the major struggle is, without exaggeration, keeping yourself awake to learn the stuff.

    EC102 I think everyone would agree is pretty difficult and tends to dwarf all other modules weeks 5 and 10. The exam is cruel for no reason. EC201 is much easier

    EC102 is NOT hard. The myth that it is, is getting out of hand.
    Its an introductory Econ course that teaches everything from scrath.
    The people who seem to find it hard appear to be mainly just quite stupid. If you can't deal with ''weird'' exam questions then that says more about you than the exam.

    I haven't taken the exam yet. I'd be very surprised if I didn't do well in it...

    Hardest 1st year course for me was Ec102, this year EC221 is probably hardest, but It will vary from person to person.
