Different students may find different subjects challenging based on their aptitude, prior knowledge, and passion for the subject matter.
However, historically, some subjects have been considered more challenging due to their complexity and rigorous curriculum. In Singapore’s A-level education system, subjects like Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics have often been perceived as more difficult by students.
Mathematics and Further Mathematics require strong problem-solving skills and a deep understanding of abstract concepts. Physics and Chemistry involve complex theories and mathematical applications. Economics involves analytical thinking and understanding of economic principles and theories.
Again, it’s important to remember that the difficulty of a subject can be subjective and can vary from person to person. Some students may excel in traditionally challenging subjects, while others may find them more accessible. It’s essential for students to choose subjects they have an interest in and are passionate about to perform well in their A-level examinations.
