    Physics: memorise it, learn how and when to use equations, but then the questions are complicated and test you beyond what you knew.
    Biology: learn tonnes of content, get tested on small parts on a level of detail you didn't know existed.
    Chemistry: learn content, learn repetitive exam technique, but face high grade boundaries.

    Further maths
    d1 because it is all working out but my handwriting is uncooperative
    m1 because I did not focus or practice or even do homework until we reached the final topics
    but fp1 is beautiful because I learnt from my m1 mistakes and concentrated from the get go.

    It is - at least from my experience. It has the least content, easiest and repetitive definitions and it follows rules that aren't too complex once you adjust to the jump from gcse.
    The maths isn't too hard and the main difficulty with questions is when they want you to spot little things that are easy to miss (like when something reacts with multiple parts of a compound in different ways).

    In my experience Physics>Latin>Chemistry>Further maths>maths. I do all these subjects because I'm a masochist (I laugh when I see so many people listing these subjects). Latin gets a lot harder at A2 and I guess you could add AFM if you choose to do FP3 and M3/4/5 but Further isn't that hard especially if you do D1 & 2. Ancient Greek is harder than latin in a linguistic sense despite the specifications and exams being the same.

    -_-

    I don't actually do it, but most people I know and my Physics teacher say its difficult.

    I guess if you're the kind of person inclined to take it you could find it easy though?

    For someone undertaking their A-levels now it would have to be history, purely due to the work load and the time you have to dedicate to the essays.

    Latin was fun, but it was cancelled at my school due to nobody being free to teach it

    I can't speak from experience. Maybe you're just being cocky :P But come on, compared to say geography or something...
