    I can only answer for psychology and geography as I study both and they don't require a massive workload, so no.

    all a-level subjects are hard. i mean, you can't get straight As without putting the work in. it also depends on the individual. it is what you make of the subjects to determine whether they are hard or easy. e.g. if you slack throughout the year on say, geography and do minimal revision, you'll find that as the year progresses, it gets difficult. whereas, if you make consistent notes and keep revising then you'll find that it's easy. i dunno though, but i don't get why people stereotype certain alevel subjects hard and others easy. obviously maths, chem, physics, bio and further maths are hard compared to subjects like media, travel and tourism and etc. but on the whole, NO alevel subject is easy. you cant treat alevels like GCSEs. it's like the workload for 14 GCSE exams = the workload for just half of 1 alevel. this applies to the majority of a-level subjects except for like, art. let that just sink in.

    I do psychology A2 now and got an A last year and got an A in my mock recently. My board is edexcel. It's not very hard just a lot of studies to memorise and the concepts are easy to understand. I do not do the other 2 but I've heard that English literature is quite hard as see people in school struggle with coursework etc.
