I personally think that Music and Chemistry should be much higher up, and that Chemistry is harder than Physics, but I haven’t done Chemistry or Physics A Level myself (I only have friends who do) so I don’t know for sure!

Then in that case I would say chemistry and physics, science was never my strong point.

That snap revise video is awful and so unrepresentative - it is certainly not a valid source of intimation. Each a level is equally as difficult, but requires a different skillset.

I would have put both Maths and Further Maths right at the top, but I think it’s perfectly debatable for students of either subject. Personally I think both subjects require a natural ability or “knack” to hit the top grades.

Not at all surprised to see History at third place having done it myself, the workload was a killer. But I think it’s down to skill set and natural ability. I found English Language a doddle personally (got a solid A without killing myself 😁, mainly because it was so interesting)
