I did them in 2017 so I'll try to remember. Disclaimer - I only found a couple of them hard.

French - easiest, but then again I used to speak it at home. Took it a year early.

Astronomy - was able to get an A just by cramming, mainly memorisation-based.

(gap in difficulty here)

German - I don't remember doing much work for it, to be honest. Still got A*

History - now this one I actually enjoyed, but I never had any significant hurdles during it. Coursework went smoothly, never did that badly in classwork. Got an A*

Physics - really not bad. A lot of questions about renewable energy for some reason. Got an A*

DT - I got a B, which was my 2nd-lowest grade, but I think this is really my own fault for being lazy with it. Nonetheless, the subject wasn't quite what I was expecting - I was kind of disappointed with how heavily it focused on product design.

English literature - A lot to learn, but I have a good writing style when it comes to essays. Got an 8.

Chemistry - Definitely got a lot more detailed mid-way through C2 and in C3! Took a while to get it right. Got A*

English language - I got a 7, but it's just a really annoying subject. I've never liked creative writing that much. I didn't do that much revision for it.

Maths - I was having a bit of a low point in it during my January mocks, but I managed to turn things around and got a 9. I definitely had to do a fair bit of revision for it though.

Biology - I found it annoying how specific I needed to be at times, and the homeostasis topics I really didn't do well in initially. This one was a lot of work. Got an A*.

(big gap)

Further pure maths iGCSE - Without a doubt the hardest. It may be the hardest GCSE out there, at least for maths. Covers a lot of AS topics and even some A2 topics and further maths AS. For a GCSE, it's really tough. I got a C in it, although that gave me a pretty good headstart for A-level.

They were alright. I know I could have done better with actually doing more than 2 weeks revision

I'm in year 12 now but here is the definitive ranking. I didn't find most of them particularly easier than the others except I found French and Maths really easy. I will also put what grades I got because they don't fully correlate with what I got

(easiest)
Maths 9
Further maths A*
French 8
Biology 9
Physics 9
Computer science 9
English lang 8
English lit 8
Chemistry 9
Geography 8
(hardest)

I don't really know where to put RE because it's not a hard subject but I found it hard because I didn't revise. I got an 8 in the end though.
