A Level Maths and Physics are not that bad. The fun stuff (quantum physics, relativity, particle physics) is quite simple, at A Level.
Maths wasn't too bad.

This is for three reasons;
(1) It's a mixture between arts and sciences, which means you write essays, do classes and practicals and all that nonsense.
(2) It's mulitdisciplinary. So far this year, I have been respectively;
-an english student - all those essays
-a photographic interpreter,
-a radar image interpreter,
-post structuralist, post colonialist approach-ist
and, within my own discipline, an ecologist, climatologist, hydrologist, geomorphologist, empiricist, and cartographer.
(3) No other subject gets taken the mickey out of so much. After doing all that, we get told that all we do is colour in, and that to get a First, we have to not go over the lines.
I am a Geographer.
I actually quite like the subject - this is very much tongue in cheek.

I found Economics/Business the most challenging, because to get the best grades, it was necessary to bring many areas of the subject together to produce a logical and well-reasoned conclusion.
