1. Further Maths
2. Chemistry - I hear theres a TON of content.
3. Physics
4. Maths - this may be harder, with the new spec, but ATM it's just a step above GCSE, alot of the stuff covered in Additional Maths (the fspq qualification or something) is in A level maths.

...+ that sociology/criminology etc. BS

I guess I obviously can't properly judge since I'm not taking a levels yet but from my impressions I'd guess that chemistry, maths (and fm), physics and the languages are the hardest.

- Further maths
- Chemistry
- physics
- maths
- biology
- History & Languages
Don't listen to anyone else. This is pretty much accurate. However physics and maths could switch

Essay subjects like History and English literature are also very challenging A-levels, as you have to form detailed, complex arguments in an exam setting.

I think it depends on the person - different people find different subjects difficult.
Well no takes no ****ing intellect to write a ****ing PEE chain, essay subjects are full of uncultured inbreds. The only reason a male would take one of these is to get laid.

Most of this is just people insinuating and not having actually taken any of these subjects. I took Biology and I would like to personally say it's a despicable a level.

I found that biology was my hardest one. That's the only one I actually cried over in the run up to the exams. I also took psychology and geography.

Sounds like someone is still bitter that they didn’t get an A* in English lit GCSE...

If writing good, analytical essays was that easy, everyone would get an A*.

History involves the most after class work e.g essays, revision and general hw. It feels like taking 3 A levels in one

I done AS maths, physics, biology and geography and in my opinion I found physics the most difficult with maths coming a close second

I think it depends on the person - I do two language A levels and I haven't found them massively stressful, I just pick it up despite not having any native speakers in my family. I know people who have a similar thing with mathsy subjects as well, it just clicks with them. My German teacher always said that Physics and German are the two hardest, I think for me Chemistry or Art would be the biggest killers.
Did you do the GCSEs for the language a levels or were you able to start from scratch??
