so true i cant do history for the life of me so that would be relatively hard for mei think there needs to be a consensus on what "harder" means
"harder" to do what?
cos i think what many people consider when they choose a subject is how hard it is to get a good mark in it, say a band 6
and in that case definitely english is on top, because even thought the subject matter of mx2 is quite abstract and complex (literally), it only requires rote practice and once you get the swing of it you're practically guaranteed very high scaled marks, but that isn't as true for english
similarly, languages would not make the list cos if you try in a language and are somewhat passionate, a band 6 is quite achievable for many
just my thoughts owo
Excluding ext 1 and 2, economics scales higher than all the listed subjects, even the sciences! And chemistry scales higher than physics.I know this is a pretty pointless post, but I was curious about what are the hardest HSC subjects (excluding languages). It will be cool to gain different perspective on this matter. Anyways this is my top 10 based off mine and some of my mates opinions:
1. Maths Ext 2
4. Maths Ext 1
9. Eng Adv/Std
bruh how is math advanced harder than the sciencesPersonally, I wouldn't rank Latin as high as some of you guys might, I personally believe Chinese would be more difficult. Keep in mind that languages like English and French have Latin roots, meaning that speaking one of (or both) languages may result in learning and performing well in Latin becoming easier, whereas having no background in a language like Chinese can make it much more difficult to learn, and subsequently take as an HSC subject. My top list doesn't take into account science subjects mainly because I only took 1 science subject, and dropped it at the end of year 11, but it does consider HSIE subjects.
My personal top 10 most difficult subjects (including languages):
It's quite difficult to limit yourself to 10 subjects but this is what I think
- Mathematics Extension 2
- English Extension 2
- Mathematics Extension 1
- Latin Extension
- English Advanced and English Extension 1
- Latin Continuers
- Economics and Legal Studies
- Mathematics Advanced
- English Standard and Mathematics Standard
Economics is a bit more difficult and scales relatively better than Business Studies and Legal Studies.I thought economics was just another version of business studies
I believe you misread/misunderstood my post. I wasn't suggesting that Mathematics Advanced is more difficult than Science subjects, I was excluding Science subjects from my list due to my limited knowledge of those subjects. If I were to include Science subjects in my list, I would definitely rank them as more difficult than Mathematics Advancedbruh your how is math advanced harder than the sciences
oh my badEconomics is a bit more difficult and scales relatively better than Business Studies and Legal Studies.

why's mc bad? u seen phys q20s bro?Personally, I love maths and a good challenge so MX2 was really good for me, although I should have done better. It definitely is the hardest subject in the HSC I would say. However, it is important to note that scaling is not in a directly proportional relationship with the difficulty of a subject. It's not a nice little y=mx+c, more like some weird sorta relation that does not pass the vertical line test. Economics is a difficult subject due to the sheer amount of content required to be learnt which translates into difficult essays and short answers. I've already made by feelings on MC quite clear.
