LOL English Literature is much much easier than maths. I got an A* for English Literature at GCSE and As at AS/A Level (before A*s were introduced for A Levels). I didn't even put any effort in to get the grades I got and the lessons weren't hard at all. It was like going to the cinema
Maths on the other hand I only got an A grade at GCSE. Maths is so much harder than English
Which A-Level is harder: Maths or English Literature? Watch

A teacher once said to my mum that our minds are kind of set in fixed ways of thinking. If you're good at logical subjects like Maths and Science, you're usually bad at English and language subjects and vice versa. I don't know how true this is but I have always found it funny because amongst my own friends this has tended to be the case.
I personally find English a lot easier than maths but I think the main problem I have with maths is that I always read the numbers in the wrong order so meh.. :P Like the question could talk about the number 253 but I would read it as 352

I take Maths and I find it really difficult, one of my best friends takes English and finds it really difficult...
I always moan about Maths and she always moans about English and my stock response is "Basically you dislike English because you get a lot of work and your teacher is horrible, I hate maths because I can't do it." and she insists that English is way harder than Maths (Even though she got a C for Maths GCSE.....) and that Maths would be a walk in the park compared to English... and then my other friend who takes Maths but not English agrees that English is probably way harder than Maths.
And I'm just sat there like , I get that English is a lot of work but the work that's actually set is pretty easy to understand, if you don't understand Maths, you're fu.cked.
Soo which one do you think is harder?
However, as a whole, Math is way tougher. Because English does not requires a lot of critical thinking. You need a lot of memorizations. That's it. Math on the other hand needed a lot of logic. In order to understand the logic behind a formula, you need to have a certain amount of intelligence to take the course. It is not a no brainer at all, why Math entry requirement in university is always higher compared to languages. At least that is what is going on in my country.
