    I can't believe people find history so hard; it's by far one of my easiest subjects. ...
    Me too, I can't understand how people find it difficult. It's just small essays.

    Says the guy called History Student! Yes, I couldn't agree any more, you don't even need to write more than two pages on the longest of questions (at GCSE).

    I'd have to say Art, just because it is so much work... I did it for a year and gave it up for DT, but before that, I just seemed to be doing so much work in my sketch book.

    Then Maths, it's evil. All of it's graphs and equations.

    None of them really, they're ridiculously easy compared to A Levels, I revised on the night before the exam for all of mine except Maths, which I took a week or two to revise for and I still came out with good results.

    French is the hardest ever subject since the new syallbus came into effect in September 2009. What makes it hard is that you've got to learn 2 PAGES of writing each for the FOUR Controlled Assessments (Speaking and Writing) that counts SIXTY percent of your final grade which tbh, is a DIFFICULT thing to do.:rant:

    If i did the old syllabus, it would have been the Listening and Reading which was 60% and I am better at than the Writing and Speaking assessements/coursework. :mad:

    Art because you've never done enough work and the marking criteria are more based on meeting difficult assessment objectives than artistic ability, plus it just takes up so much time.

    Indeed, very subjective. I found English the easiest of the lot.

    I put French btw, as foreign languages are difficult unless you have the knack.

    Art was the hardest for me, it consumed my life with the amount of coursework that is needed for it. People may laugh saying it's a 'soft' option, but there was more work involved than maths, English or science for me. I got 10 A grades in the end, including Art, so it paid off though :P

    Music. I'm undoubtedly failing. Mainly because I have a s*** teacher who doesn't even know how to sight read.
