    I know there's been a lot of these but I wanted to see the results on a poll.

    It's obviously subjective so I want to know which one YOU would find the hardest...

    I think art looks really hard. Even some of the most talented students can struggle to get an A in it, so I think is quite a challenge.

    Maths also seems very difficult...

    A poll would be useful.

    I can't really judge, since I haven't taken all A-levels possible simultaneously...But from a good guess, I'd say that chemistry is probably the most difficult A-level.

    English Lit I'd say. Hated it at GCSE.

    Hardest one I'm doing is Economics.

    Why is maths on there with further maths just 3 choices down?

    I'm not trying to downplay maths, I suppose it could be difficult enough, but it doesn't compare to Further maths at all.

    Hell barely any of them do. The only ones that stand a chance of even being close are physics and chemistry, and possibly lit, that one depends on the person.

    I still say Further though.

    i would find latin the hardest but as iv never studied it its only a guess
    but what i did find the hardest is biology.... aahh i have such a *#*#! memory! and have to be so accurate in answers... im better with something i can go round in circles explaining ...eg... "the bit that does this and that also relates to blah blah blah" lol i loved it as a subject tho... i just sucked...

    well art and stuff requires a whole load of natural talent, so in that respect further maths might be easier for me, but is till think its definitely the hardest a level
    and at the moment the voting pattern seems to represent the truth i feel
