Hardest to easiest. Physics is hardest because we have no teacher, I think. English is only hard because of the workload. The work itself isn't difficult.

What exactly makes Higher English hard in your opinion? Anyone else is free to share their opinions on this aswell by the way!
It was completely personal to me. I've always had a flair for the science and mathsy subjects. I found English most difficult, that's not to say I found it undo-able in comparison to the others, I ended up with 5 A's last year.

By the end of the year I was getting 23s and 25s for my essays with ease, and I was getting high marks for Close Reading, I just had to work a hell of a lot harder for it. I can't pinpoint exactly what made it hard for me, it was never a memory problem. I could easily spot techniques, could write great critical essays, could remember all my quotes to 100% accuracy...I just never seemed to write what the markers wanted me to write in close reading, I would miss little bits of expansions on my answers because I've implied it with what I've already written, or I'd miss a word that's supposed to stand out to me that just seems bog standard.

I feel it's a subject you can't be naturally good at, as there's no set answers but at the same time, the marker is looking for something specific. With essays it's well argued, critically thought, and well-evidenced quotes. They want to see that you have an in-depth understanding of the text and can argue your interpretations well - this is the bit I was always good at.

Like I said, it was the hardest subject for me, but it wasn't super difficult. Just required some hard work.
