    Hardest: Chem, AFM, languages, English lit..

    Easiest: maths (once you understand it, although this sounds like something you can say about any subject I feel it's specially true for maths)

    What advice are you looking for?

    I've got experience in 5

    History - was really hard for me, maybe I just suck at following the question because I always like to go off on a tangent.

    English Literature: Quite easy, I got a B on the exam at a2 having not read the texts but just reading the analysis on sparknotes and other places.

    Economics: Challenging if you don't have knowledge of economics but do-able as multiple choice makes up a portion of your grade and that's easy.

    Geography: Easy for getting marks but large questions worth high marks may be tricky if looking for high grade

    Maths: Hard for me but if you ever GCSE maths shouldn't be too difficult to get a high grade

    Btecs Business and IT are both very easy read stuff on the internet and then write it in your own words basically

    Best list:
    1. Languages (If not native)
    2. FM & AFM
    3. Physics/History
    4. Chemistry/English Lit
    5. Biology
    6. The rest...

    I think that the hardest are physics and chemistry. The easiest are, according to friends, sociology and geography. Although, this would depend on what kind of learner and thinker you are. I'm a scientist, so I don't think I would do too well at sociology.
