For me personally

Verbal >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ochem>Bio>Gen Chem>Physics

Ochem only because it's barely on the exam, so I never have any motivation to study it and usually miss the questions.

It depends on whether the MCAT wants to give me regular biology questions (like some MCATs do) or research studies copy/pasted straight from pubmed (like some other MCATs do) on the BS section.

If just regular biology questions, then from hardest to easiest: verbal > orgo > bio > chem > physics

If pubmed articles, then from hardest to easiest: bio > verbal > orgo > chem > physics

Verbal flat-out sucks no matter how you look at it.

Physics depends on whether the test sticks to "standard" things like forces, gravity, pressure, light, harmonic motion, etc, or whether they ask questions about minutiae like capacators, radiation detectors, or the period of pendulums.

Bio, chem, and ochem are all the same and somewhat easy for me (minus the occasional passage that completely baffles me)...
