Hi, anyone who has done Economics at A-Level and also either chemistry/maths/sociology A-level, how would you rank the subjects in terms of difficulty??
I've experienced doing the ones listed above and am curious to how economics compares.
Is succeeding in economics down to memorising a lot of content or exam practice or both? How hard/easy is it to understand?
Does it depend on what exam board you do?

I didn't do sociology but I'd say that Chemistry is the hardest, then Economics then Maths.
Economics has a good amount of content but once you cover it all and get good exam/essay technique it's quite simple.

I'm doing Economics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. If I had to rank them in terms of difficulty it would be: Further Maths, Economics, Chemistry and Maths, with maths being the easiest. Memorisation is more important in chemistry than economics but higher analytical and evaluative skills are required for economics. Personally, I find understanding each individual economic theories and concepts rather easy but having to link them and make a chain of reasoning is challenging. If you're aiming for A* then extra knowledge from wider reading is also desirable. I've finished maths (pure, statistics and mechanics) in a year and I think the exam questions are pretty straightforward; also not much memorisation and if you've done plenty of practice throughout the year revision is a breeze, compared to economics.
