All seem easy to revise on and learn except German (oh why oh why would you take German) and History, it's not hard but just practice speed writing and practice essays.

I take Maths, English and Science like you do and German as well.

German is probably the easiest to revise for me because it's just vocab

Maths and Science are not too difficult but I find English hard to revise because you have to spend a lot of time writing long essays.

Really I never got higher than an E the higher papers and even got F's. I have got A*A* on writing and BB on the speaking but could never handle the higher papers. I am doing the foundation papers anyway so that I, at least, secure a C than end up with an overall D with the higher papers. Doing the foundation is not what I want provided I am entered into higher for everything else.

id say languages are by far the hardest to revise as you just gradually get better with practise. with maths or science you can revise all the formulas etc etc and technically be ready for the exam, but with languages you do need the full year as you learn it all so gradually

History isn't what I'd call hard, but you definitely can't cram the night before you've got to keep up with the notes throughout the year

You need any foriegn language and a Humanities subject for E Bacc, doesn't necessarily mean German and History.
