What GCSE’s are the hardest when it comes to exams for any subjects?
It's very subjective dependent on your own strengths and weaknesses but personally this is what I would say:
1. French
2. English Lit
3. English Lang

I'm now in A levels studying biology, chemistry and maths so I'm biased towards the sciences. English I found the timings really hard (probably my hardest exams) and my one of my least favourite subjects. French I thoroughly enjoyed but you have to be very accurate for the top grades. Personally, I would do well in the reading and writing exams but my listening would always be my worst and I'd stress out in the speaking exams. I'd probably say the hardest science was physics

It really depends what you personally find challenging! Personally, I found physics paper two and chemistry paper two were my weakest papers, because I found the content really difficult to get my head around. History is also really intense because of the speed you have to write essays at.

I loved english, so it wasn't really a problem for me, but lots of people find english literature paper two really hard because of how long it is!

Content heavy exams like history can be difficult. If you know the content and know exam technique you’ll be fine. Maths is difficult because unlike subjects like English, you have very little wiggle room, you’re either right or wrong. Practice questions and papers are your friend when it comes to maths. Science too, learn the key practicals, I think they make up 20% of exam content, which can make the difference between a grade or two. Languages can be difficult. I recommend using YouTube to practice listening. Learn vocab and grammar. In the listening and writing, try to play to your strength areas. English language you just need to know how to analyse and stuff, past papers and you’ll be fine. Literature you need to learn quotes and stuff, make and use flash cards. Design technology, do your best in coursework as it could teach towards 50% of your final grade, and can act as a bit of an insurance in your exam.

Not sure how many of these apply to you, this is just what I did
