It’s all personal opinion really, for example I find maths easy, but can’t do English language or physics. my opinion will almost certainly differ to yours and anyone else who comments so please bear this in mind

So I would put:
Maths (easiest)
RS
Chemistry
English lit
Geography
Biology
English language
Physics (hardest)

(I don’t take econ, further maths, history or ICT)

Obviously I can only judge from the GCSEs I did but of the ones on your list I found that

English Language (Easiest)
RS
Maths
English Literature
French
Biology
History
Chemistry
Physics (Hardest)

I’d say that none of them are particularly interesting because they’re all being taught at a v basic level but I wouldn’t say any of them are extremely difficult or should be avoided.

Oh ok. But I thought that the IGCSE maths spec is harder (at least the new one) because of the topics it covers differentiation etc.

So do you think that geo is harder or history?

Geo was the hardest GCSE, but that doesnt mean it was THAT hard, it juts required a lot of effort.
Economics was my 2nd favorite subject and i really enjoyed it

I did geography igcse edexcel, it was probably the most hardest/boring subject ever. The course is very long with a lot attention to specific details in case study, I don't recommend it but thats just my personal opinion, even though I got A* in the end.

So I wanted to know people's opinions on the following subjects. I would be doing IGCSE Edexcel but I want to know people's opinion whatever board

So the subjects are:

Math
Further Math
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
ICT
RS
French
History
Geography
English Literature
English Language
Economics

So, Which ones would you say are hardest or easiest?
Which ones would you say are the most interesting?
Which ones would you say you would never do?
For me, who is good at science subjects and not so good at essay writing: (from easiest to hardest)

Biology (edexcel GCSE)
Chemistry (edexcel GCSE)
Physics (edexcel GCSE)
French (AQA GCSE)
ICT (WJEC GCSE)
Maths (edexcel GCSE)
History (edexcel GCSE)
English literature (edexcel iGCSE)
English language (edexcel iGCSE)

And I can't say for economics, geography or further math as I did not do these subjects at GCSE. I also did my GCSEs in 2017, so I did the old GCSE (besides maths), do not know what the new GCSEs are like really. I heard french is a lot harder now...
