    How can you say unless you've studied them all?

    Oh, and you should probably include maths in the poll.

    Well it's going to be rather different for different people, who will often have different skills and strengths. For me, A Level maths would probably be quite the nightmare, so perhaps I'd say that. But it's not in the poll; interesting...

    I'm sure most people would find further maths very challenging, but for me its not too bad. I would find something like english lang/lit very hard though. It's a bit of a silly poll.

    Statistically, at my school anyway, Chemistry is far and away the hardest subject at A-Level, followed by English lit and then German I think. I voted Chem. in the poll.

    Are A levels likes Scottish Highers or am I thinking of something else

    ^ I believe A levels are indeed the equivalents of Scottish Highers!

    Or at least AS level => Scottish Higher
    And A2 level => Advanced Scottish Higher

    In that case, I'd say History. Definitely.
