Me? I'd say any artistic subject like photography or graphics due to workload.

According to many people it's Chemistry, however I disagree with my former statement.

There's an official list of most difficult A-levels and I know that the top two are Further Maths and Chemistry, but I would find taking drama or something similar SO much more challenging. Not that anyone could ever make me take drama xD

I'm taking Art outside of lesson time though and I just got one off full marks on a controlled assessment. It's a lot of work but if you do a bit every week it's easy peasy.

art is hard when you don't have an idea for a project but once the inspiration hits there is no better feeling

I'd say I find Geography harder because of the exam structure (AQA).

I would assume it's, like what OP said, an artistic subject. Subjects such as Maths is more about remembering formulas etc which anyone can do with practice. However, artistics subjects is more about talent, which not everyone can master.

I would struggle with the art/creative subjects, but I find further myth is not that hard. It depends on whether you are an arts or science/maths person.

For me it'd be chemistry, physics, maths or further maths. I'm not gifted with them kind of things.

Fair enough, I do further maths and chemistry and I can assure you they are overrated.

You see, just remembering formulae doesn't get you far in A-level maths and further maths, you have to have a deep understanding of what happens, for instance, when you differentiate an algebraic expression.
By just remembering formulae you put yourself at risk of losing marks to questions that are obscure.
IMO, maths is neither easy nor hard at A-level

Yeah you see they are my subjects (although I did biology not physics) so I suppose it is based on individuals

Yes that's true, I understand since I am a Maths A-Level student . I just feel that artistic subjects would be harder .

I'm quite good at Biology. The only reason I didn't study it, is because it clashed with Politics. but all other sciences are really not my thing.

definitely chemistry, it's the largest step up from GCSE(in terms of difficulty) and it's been a challenging subject from day 1
