It honestly varies between person to person because, although they all fall under the group named 'sciences', there are some differences in the GCSE skills you need.
Biology is very memorisation heavy, as there is a lot of content to know but that's basically it for gcse.
Chemistry has some maths elements to it and maybe some more application of knowledge is needed but still, memorising is also key.
With physics, there is the most maths but it's not that advanced and you can probably get by if you make sure you learn all the equations but (and again, memorising content).

There is no 'hardest' or 'easiest'
I personally found chemistry the hardest and physics the easiest but I have lots of friends who had really different opinions to me!
(I didn't do the exam because of covid 19 but I still did mocks and tons of practice papers over the 2 years to get a good idea of exams).

Biology is regurgitating textbooks and Physics is doing maths. Chemistry is both
