    Most: Latin, purely because of the bloody literature.
    Least: Maths.

    Probably history!
    There is a lot of content, then perhaps geography as well, case studies are a nightmare!

    english, I pretty much did no revision for r.e, I used to go to church and just listened in class and wrote down notes, I came out of r.e with an A, just a few marks off an a* as I got a* in the first paper and an a in the second paper.

    History was the most effort and I found that after completing the controlled assessments that the reading and listening for languages wasn't too bad.
    Also maths wasn't much effort, but I just happen to enjoy maths so that doesn't count

    I revised a lot for English literature to make sure I got an A
    I revised a lot for bio and chem

    I would say apart from that it was pretty much equal although I didn't do much revision for Spanish, ict,

    History the most, because there is a lot of content.
    English the least, because there is not a lot you can revise.

    I revised most for Biology, R.E (which I still got a D in, purely because I hated it) and Maths. Also quite a lot for Business Studies as well.

    Did no revision whatsoever for ICT and English Language and Lit. (still managed A* in ICT, A* in English and A in English Lit.)

    The ones I remember revising for the most were geography and history, because they were my two favourite subjects and the ones I was most motivated to do well in. I ended up being one mark off an A* for geography and a few off an A* for history, but that was down to my coursework.

    The only one I really revised hard for was Latin, and that was because I loved my teacher and wanted to do well for her! Least revision is a toss up between RE, Maths and English... though I'd probably say RE if I had to pick one!

    All I used to revise at GCSE was science, not because I found it the most difficult, but because I enjoyed it the most! Therefore, I would kid myself I was doing 'useful' revision when really, I should of probably been focusing my time on the my more difficult subjects (geography, graphics, religion).
