Is AS Level/A Level Economics hard? Like if you havent taken Econs before, and you start at A levels, is it hard?

Is Computing (not ICT) hard? Does the coursework require alot of time and effort?

Is Chemistry really that hard?

Economics - not at all difficult. Most people start from scratch at A Level. The only thing about Economics is it's quite tricky in the first few weeks to get the hang of using economic terminology, but once you're past that hurdle it's one of the easiest subjects around. Not much to learn at all, all pretty commonsensical, and the exams are very lenient.

Eco exams were NOT lenient this june believe me. Chemistry at Alevels is totally different to GCSE.

According to my sister, the AS level is pretty easy but the A2 gets harder.

The first day they will tell you to forget most of the things you learnt about chemistry since they are not true. Take electron configuration for example. 2,8,8 sort of stuff is wrong. You have to use 1s2s2p3s3p....

I think you chose the first question. I don't even remember them now. But the last question was totally stupid, something about a multiplier. The wording was very poor.

It's easy. If you have good course notes and a reasonable memory it really is very simple. The concepts are very straightforward - common sense really - even for A2.

Economics AQA was easy this year IMO despite it being my worst subject.

Computing AQA is good, and especially the coursework for next year. Our teacher is making us do next years coursework in a few weeks for more VB practice and just incase we need to retake. MUCH easier than last years.

How can you ask if one subject is hard or not? Obviously it depends on your academical ability so its going to be different for everyone.

I THINK ECONOMICS IS HARRRRRRRRRRRRRD!!!!!!!!!!
