I also did art and IT. They weren't especially 'hard' but the workload was quite intense so I wasn't certain where to rate them on the scale.

It appears that most people find languages the hardest! What I find hard about Spanish is the speaking assessments.

I'm doing mine at the moment, and it's:
Citizenship
English Literature
Graphics
ICT (OCR)
Science (BTEC)
Child Development
PE (BTEC)
Maths Core 1

I'm not sure why, but I find really "easy" subjects difficult and vice-versa..with the Maths & Citizenship

From the GCSEs I did last year, easiest to hardest:

Maths
Chemistry
French
Biology
RE
Statistics
Physics
English Language
Drama
English Literature
Punjabi
Business Studies

I found Business Studies so hard! My brain didn't function the way that the subject wanted it to :P Interestingly, the top four GCSEs I found easy are now the ones I'm doing for AS-level, and enjoying - for those of you thinking about AS level options.

Maths (Easiest)
Spanish
English
Philosophy and Ethics
History
Drama
Psychology
Biology
Chemistry
Physics (Hardest)

Apparently maths and languages are supposed to be the hardest...not for me, oddly enough.
Another strange thing is that people say that there is a positive correlation between high maths results and high physics results...oh dear, not for me! XD I find it hard to memorise a lot of information that at times I do not find particularly intriguing, and my forte is instead essay-style writing and straightforward work such as in maths and Spanish.

Why are people posting their grades? Why is everything on this site a competition?
