For me, right now:

Maths
History
English Lit
Politics

But I've only been studying them for a few months. I also struggled with Maths at the start because I did no Maths for the whole of Year 11, so it's taking a little while to get back into the swing of it.

My a-levels were six years ago, but ok. Hardest to easiest;

Psychology - loads of cases and random info to remember, and I didn't find it that interesting so I struggled to force myself to memorise it.
Chemistry - Big jump from GCSE, from what I remember. Not too difficult, though, really, just slightly harder than bio/maths.
Biology - Not really difficult either.
Maths - Easiest by far, because I found it the most enjoyable.

I do IB am I allowed? Haha
Personally:

1. Physics SL
2. French HL
3. History SL
4. English HL
5. Maths HL
6. Music SL

Physics is mindboggling, there's just so much to remember in French and History, English and Maths are challenging but I enjoy them and Music is easy and fun

Going from the hardest to the easiest:

1) Physics
2) Further maths
(I would tie physics and further maths first but I think physics just edges FM)
3) Maths
4) French
Tbh, I'd tie maths and French too but maths requires a bit more effort than French. I probably find French and maths easy because they are my 2 favourite subjects.

Maths: as above
Economics: the real exam is tricky and the textbook is crap, but we've got a brilliant teacher
