    I remember physics being way harder than chemistry.
    But maybe things have changed in the years since I did my A-Levels.

    Greatly depends on the person. Ask me to do something English related and i'd fail. Computer, maths or science i'd be fine. Flipside take an English student and ask them something such as maths and they may fail. Hardest is dpendant on the person.. but overall i'd say chemistry. Brief memory of it for me was .. You have 50 pages of work to do? Oh have another 10 just for good measure. :bricks:

    By far chemistry,
    I got a grade B at GCSE and was told to take it by my teachers (along with biology and psychology).
    It's a lot of work and dedication - the highest grade I got in my Jan mocks was a D.
    The practicals are fairly straightforward though

    This is a very silly question as different people will find different subjects hard for instance I would find maths impossible but I would find English lit to be manageable and ok because essay writing is what I'm best at

    Depends on whether you are a 'sciency/maths' person or an arts person.

    English would be brutal for me, whilst chemistry is my easiest A. I do History, which is a force to be reckoned with... Don't underestimate it :,)

    Physics in my own experience. I dropped it after not being able to budge from 50% since September. I also find Maths difficult too.

    My hardest is chemistry, but it really depends on where your skill-set lays. However, chemistry is a mixture of abstract theory and a whole new influx of info, so.
