    To answer your question, I would say that Chemistry is the hardest science. It's a deadly mixture of very difficult concepts and mathematics.

    I think it really depends on the person. Some people I know find biology hard because of all the things you are required to know- there is a lot of content in the course. Some people find chemistry hard because again there is a lot to remember (though not as much) and because it requires a lot of different skills. I find physics the hardest out of the three- because I sometimes struggle to understand the concepts and if you can't do that, you can struggle with using the right equation in a question. Most people I know would say either Chemistry or physics were the hardest, but that varies on the person. The people who are really good at maths and do further maths find physics easier, whereas those who do biology tend to find chemistry easier than physics. (Of course I am generalising)
    Whether or not psychology counts as a science or not depends on the university- and course. Cambridge don't view it as a science generally for most of their science courses. Generally unless applying for psychology I wouldn't say it would count as a science. If you are wondering for a future career- look at university websites to see whether or not they count it- normally they say so.

    Edit: I will say though that in my chemistry class I am one of the few people who find it relatively easy..

    If you're not a natural at maths, then physics could be hard. Alternatively, if you're a maths whizz, then physics is going to seem a bit like falling off a log. Similarly, some people find Biology a breeze whereas others find it baffling. Chemistry seems universally stretching, even those with a greater natural aptitude for it, and it is the central science, after all.

    Psychology isn't a science subject is more to humanities and arts.
    But it is hard to score if you don't have a good command of language.
    (Psychology in A-Level is the most time consuming reading subject, paired with Biology, it will not be fun at all)

    Meanwhile, I guess the hardest should be Biology if you hate memorize through facts and biological terms.
    Physics will be hard if you don't have good imagination, and mathematics knowledge.

    The "is Psychology as science" debate has been going on for decades lol. At Universities, most Psychology courses are B.Sc (Bachelor of Science), but others argue it is not a Science as there are too many approaches to Psychology (biological, cognitive, behaviourist, humanistic, psychodynamic etc...) with differing beliefs about the human mind, unlike pure sciences with unquestionable foundations that aren't really up for debate.

    I do both Biology and Psychology and they are pretty toxic together lol. In Psychology, there is a lot of content, but the content is quite easy to get your head around, but it is still very time consuming. In Biology, there is a lot of content, but the content is sooooo difficult to understand, so it's even more time consuming

    I don't do Chem and Physics anymore, but I'd say they're more difficult as they introduce more Maths skills on top of the heavy workload and difficult concepts.
