    There is an absolute answer to this question, and the answer is Chemistry by an absolute mile. No matter how "clever" you are, you still have to learn such a mass of farly complicated information. For me, Biology is the second hardest, because again you have to assimilate a load of information, but this material is slightly "easier" to digest, as it is often just a case of learning a Biological "story". Physics is the easiest if you are mathematical. It was my easiest A-level subject by a mile, I only dropped 8 UMS out of the 600. It is just simple maths and most of the information you have to actually learn is very logical and can be pictured easily.

    I only take Bio and Chem. Out of those I'd say Chem is harder content wise, but AQA Biology exams are just disgustingly hard.

    I agree, I'm with different boards but I think biology is easy to understand, but with a hard exam. Chemistry is hard to get but once you do, the exams are quite predictable

    Not on AQA then, this Ali Nawzish fella. Biology is ridiculous, the exams are a game of guess! Chemistry is eeeeeeeeasy if you understand it
    Any subject would be easy if you understood it xD Personally I find Chemistry harder than Biology, mainly because I find Biology more interesting!

    I find chemistry so much easier than biology - in bio theres just too many application questions. I think I've got the right answer and my answer seems feasible - but then its wrong :|

    I have done all three and the only one that is challenging is chemistry. Both biology and physics are very straight forward.

    It really depends on the teacher, I find Chemistry easy because I have a fun teacher who makes it interesting! Where as for Physics, I end up teaching it to myself out of a textbook..
