I took it, had the AQA spec. Definitely enjoyed it, I found it quite easy because I was interested in it. Definitely easy if you're intelligent and into the sciences, otherwise it can be difficult if you don't enjoy the more logical and analytical subjects.

i think i wouldve done well in it tho

I found it really easy but I’m quite into that kind of thing which was probably an advantage. There were quite a few people in my class who really struggled but most of them only did it coz their parents wanted them to

did you find history hard because of the long answers or was it just hard in general?

Hardest->easiest.

Maths (put at a 7, but was never really my thing - just didn't have the "maths brain" OR the motivation needed for higher grades)
Chem (one of my faves, just didn't come to me particularly easily)
Physics (had a useless teacher for the last 2 years, taught myself most of the content and realised it wasn't as difficult as she'd made it seem:rolleyes:)
Bio (by far the easiest science IMO)
Drama (practical work was fine and was overall an easy GCSE, though took a while for me to get used to the new essay style - kept losing marks as I always tried to approach them like an Eng lit essay, was apparently much more simple than that??)
Business
Eng lang
Eng lit (would've been higher if I hadn't had issues with timing throughout the entire course lol)
History
Spanish (languages are just "my thing" ig)

Definitely not for me! My science teachers were all very good! If there’s a trend in any teachers being a bit rubbish it would have to be French teachers in my opinion haha.

Easiest

Physics - probably bc a lot of it is applied maths
Statistics - like maths but less content
Maths - dk, just always found it easy
Chemistry - just makes sense somehow
French - I guess because I have a good memory
Geography - a lot of common sense in the human + like science in the physical
Dance - theory is easy, practical okay
English Lit - loads of stuff to remember, but okay
Biology - I'd say my hardest science, probably as you have to be so specific and there's not much maths
Textiles - so much coursework
English Lang - exams are always such a push for time

Hardest

for me it was the amount of content that I had to learn, the long answers didn't really bug me as I'm quite good at writing essays
