Its probably just that more people do AQA and Edexcel not that they're harder.

Those were the worst ones for me. I found chemistry very easy. Seems like maths is the hardest subject across the board, which I completely agree with.

AQA Chemistry Paper 2 was the worst. Ive never found chemistry hard, Ive always been getting top marks but I ran out of time so missed questions and realised I've made mistakes on some after, it was an unfair paper

Kind of forgot about that paper. I don't think it was as disastrous as I felt it was at the time, the other two papers were alright though, though paper 3 had a lot of weird and waffly questions.

I'd say the hardest exam I sat this year was explaining to dad why I was coming in the door at 04:30 ...after saying I was popping down the shops....

Sorry but OCR MEI Further Mechanics was way harder than anything else. A pass on that would probably be something like 30%.

Maths and physics Papers 3 were possibly the worst for me since I forgotten about half of the content, despite heavily revising for them compared to the previous exams.
