I know this will be a recurring topic. So I'd like to point out that statistically, Maths is the easiest subject to get a high grade in at University. With Law/general humanities being hardest.

So there's no reason to believe sixth forms any different

Makes no difference to my point whatsoever. If anything it strengthens it. A level maths is even easier. Look at grade breakdowns for each subject.

Maths and further maths constantly lead in A*/A grades given. And through this thread you'll see more people saying Maths was their easiest.

It was my easiest too and I'm definitely not a maths whiz

So far,
Economics
Maths/history- maths is low maintenance but i can see it as being ‘harder’ whilst history has a ton of work

Maths easiest, Chem then Physics.
BUT it’s easier to get the same grade in Physics (lets say an A) than Chem in my opinion, but easier in Chem to get a better mark if ygm.

Easiest: geography
RS
English and biology joint hardest.
The essay style at A-Level is so different for English lit, so it’s difficult to begin with. I don’t do biology anymore because we can’t do AS so I dropped it this term - it was nothing to do with the difficulty, but my friends say it is a huge workload.
