I finished yesterday with Biology! .
With that in mind, I was wondering what exams people felt were easier and what were harder.
IMO - Easiest was French and Computing; Hardest were Biology and maybe Maths.
English and RMPS weren't bad, when I got down to it, Latin was fine (harder Paper 1, easy Paper 2), History was average. Can't really remember Chemistry.
I appreciate that not everyone has finished yet, but what are your thoughts?

BTW - Please don't talk about specific Q's, don't want to spend my whole summer vacation panicking!

Lucky you only doing 6 N5's, I had to endure 9. Could have done with dropping one (or two!)

Fair enough!
I thought the UAE was significantly easier than that rubbish from P&N each year at the Prelims.

I'm assuming you did your Nat 5 courses in 2 years, people with 6 Nat 5's would've done it in 1.

Yes - I did. IMO, 9 was a bit much though, and won't really be of any benefit anyway.

for me it was

1. Biology 2. Art 3. History 4. Chemistry 5. Maths 6. Modern Studies 7. English

English has always been my hardest subject so it didn't come as a surprise that it was the one I found most difficult. I finished Biology in an hour so we'll find out tomorrow if I done well or not. Fingers crossed!

English (timing was a struggle though)
Chemistry (i don't really know, it was quite hard)
Modern Studies (timing and some weird questions)
