Out of all three I did, mine was History - it was 90 minutes and I felt as though I had to structure my answers so neatly and regurgitate so much detail in such a tight time frame

What was your hardest A-level exam (A2 or AS)?

Has to be Geography Unit 4 - A2 (EDEXCEL). Not enough time and having to remember all of your references is ridiculously hard...

I think my hardest A2 exam was probably my Unit 3 AQA Geography exam because I had to answer 2 sets of 7, 8 and 10 mark questions followed by a 40 mark essay in 2 and a half hours. The essay title was also really difficult. So similar reasons to the history exams really! Felt like my arm was going to fall off!

English literature B - both exams. First one felt like I was shooting in the dark & the second was just so wordy that they were trying to make everyone fail. Love English but it's so stressful that it takes the enjoyment out of it all

It's unfair IMO, the papers in the past 2 sessions have been much harder than previous years, but whatever everyone taking them now has to cop it i guess, good luck in your studies.

OCR C3/4. I hate maths.

As long as I get B's in them/ do super well in stats and get an A in that and B/C in 3&4, I should get an A overall, which I need!

Probably AS maths, because I did terrible and ended up with E.

For A2, probably geography because it's all essay questions, which is a bit different to the type of questions you get on exams for a lot other subjects.

Physics OCR Unit 5: G485. Because it was a horrendous paper. A question about content from Unit 2? The hardest electric fields question they could think of?? ONE medical physics question?? Hardly anything on atomic structure or nuclear physics????

I was not amused. Went in feeling confident and came out feeling awful. It's the one paper that has convinced me that I've missed the A I need for uni (I need AAB and don't think I got the A in chem, which I've been expecting all year so I was relying on physics, which I did much better in last year).
