    chemistry

    not because of the content, but because of the exam questions. as a subject, chemistry is really cool. the questions just made it a stressful learning experience.

    Well for year 12 I did Chemistry, Biology, Maths (Core 1 and 2, and Stats 1) and History and my least favourite was DEFINITELY maths. I was quite bad at it and I felt like it took four times as much work as my other subjects to get even half the result (e.g. Study 2 hours for a chemistry topic test, get 90%, 8 hours for maths and get like 40%). I loved my teachers but I was just unbelievably cr*p at it 😂. I got an A* at GCSE and a D at AS in maths despite studying for like 30 hours for it and getting As in my other 3 subjects with less than half that revision time.

    This year for full A-Level though I've dropped maths and I don't really know which would be my least favourite. I enjoy them all. Chemistry I'm finding hardest this year, and Biology probably has the biggest workload, but I wouldn't say I dislike any of them. I don't like exams as a way of being assessed but that's just how it is so while I don't like school much I do like all my subjects.

    Eng Lit is pissing me off and has made me realise that I definitely don't want to do an entire degree which revolves around analyzing texts.

    Biology, workload compared to my other A-Levels is so much greater, I lost my passion for the subject during A2 as well - though this was probably down to my teachers more than anything else.

    My least favourite A-Level was Physics. I found it really difficult, particularly year 13. I am not really a science person!

    i love english lit lmao
    least fave would be politics because it's ****ing boring and you constantly have to adapt to changing PMs/ presidents and you have to update all of your previous examples or a book might not match up to the current political climate so that makes things difficult too.

    I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so I chose a variety of A-Levels, including a science which was Physics. A-Level was a big step from GCSE, I felt the content was was difficult to grasp. It took a lot of hard work at the end!
