    Hardest subjects in my opinion (no particular order):
    Further maths - difficult and fast paced
    History - extremely content heavy
    French/other language if you’re not fluent - its not gcse you can’t just memorise stuff and hope for the best anymore
    Chemistry - difficult to understand and content heavy
    Biology - difficult to understand and content heavy
    Physics - difficult to understand
    Computer science - content heavy
    Art - if u cant draw/paint extremely well and extremely quickly you’re ****ed

    I'm doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics and an EPQ - I'm finding Further Maths fine at the moment, although this will definitely change when we start FP2 after half term. Struggling a lot with Maths currently, C3 is kicking my arse but I need an A* so I'm gonna have to work. Definitely don't regret choosing either of these two, as Maths is my favourite subject and what I want to study at uni, so they're kind of necessary I did pretty well in them both at AS, so I reckon if I work hard I'll be okay

    Physics at A Level is by far the hardest thing I've ever studied. I've only just got my head around the Year 1 content and the Year 2 stuff is absolutely baffling me. But I don't regret it and I wouldn't swap it for anything. I have learnt so much in the past year and a bit, and most of the stuff is actually really interesting. Besides, the Year 2 content looks better than Year 1, so if that does turn out to be true I'll have the motivation to carry on working hard for it.

    EPQ is my biggest regret ever - I had the opportunity to drop it about 3 weeks ago and chose not to, biggest mistake ever. I hate it and am 100% going to fail, I don't know what on earth possessed me to carry it on.

    Biology by a f****** mile. Don't take it. It's a despicable A level. Absolutely disgusting. It's not even actual biology. NO ONE WANTS TO LEARN ABOUT BLOODY PLANTS!!!!!
