The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) has released the national figures for A-level results this year, as thousands of students around the country receive their grades.
Within this data, the subjects which attracted the least A* or A results have been released.
The top ten are as follows:
These figures are slightly skewed and should be taken with a pinch of salt as to whether they are 'the hardest' A-levels.
Some subjects are taken by a smaller number of students who are more confident in their abilities to achieve an A or A*.
For instance, Further Mathematics was the ‘easiest subject’ as it attracted the most A*’s and As, with 56.3 per cent.
However, this subject is taken by only approximately 16 per cent of those taking the Mathematics A-level – a subset who are likely to be confident in their abilities to achieve in the subject.
Overall, most subjects saw a decrease in the percentage of those achieving A* or A grades at A-level this year.
Congratulations to all receiving their grades today.
