    Chemistry is easy if you like it and difficult if you don't. Really.

    Good luck! I personally think biology is very doable (much easier than chemistry in my opinion), but maybe that's because I like it more..

    I'm ok at maths and I'm doing further maths as an IGCSE but I don't think I could handle it at a-level

    AQA? I really enjoyed AS biology, A2 is slightly harder (obviously) but if you enjoy it it shouldn't be too hard

    Why not AFM? I'm sure people who find maths difficult will struggle more to solve 2nd order ODEs and diagonalise matrices than add some complex numbers.

    Pretty subjective question (I don't find philosophy particularly difficult, but I know others think otherwise) - but typically Maths & the 3 'natural' sciences are usually considered the hardest.

    English Literature I'd argue is just as hard as them, apparently the grading is incredibly harsh but that could just be hearsay
