    Chemistry, Further Maths and maybe Physics.
    I would say that Biology is a hard subject based on how much content you need to know but it's a very easy subject so it's not in my list
    Btw Chemistry and Further Maths are known to be the hardest A Levels

    I'm currently struggling with A2 Edexcel Government and Politics. The exam is literally a mark a minute- 90marks=1hr30mins. Which means, technically, they don't expect u to read the questions properly (as that wud take at least 3-5 mins), much less plan your essay. Who does that?

    Its like that for most exams? Marks indicate the maximum minutes you should spend on the question.

    Maybe for science based subjects. But I also take Literature and English language, and we're always given an extra 30mins-1hr (respectively) to read through the questions and do some essay planning.
