The Guinness Book of World Records does not rank toughness of courses.

Recently Facebook users have been posting statuses bragging that their field of study in college was ranked the toughest by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The status usually looks like this:

"Engineering" has been chosen as the 'toughest' course among all the courses including BCOM, BCA, IAS, IPS and MBBS; by the Guinness Book of World Records, on 18 Aug 2010. It has 58 university exams + 130 series exams + 174 assignments within 4 years (max. 750 working days). All engineers post this on your wall for at least 2 hours & be proud to be an engineer!...

Problem is, Guinness does not keep such records about the "toughness" of college courses/fields of study.

That said, here are some courses Facebook users have claimed are the toughest, based on number of exams, assignments and years to complete.

  • Bachelors of Science in Nursing
  • Bachelor of Science in Architecture
  • Bachelor of Science in Engineering

One "course" the Guinness Book does rank, is the longest Golf course in the world: the par-72, 8,548 yard Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Club in Lijiang, China.

The Guinness Book of World Records does not rank the toughness of courses. According to Snopes, Guinness has released a statement on the subject saying: "Contrary to some claims being made on various social-networking sites, Guinness World Records does not recognize record categories such as “toughest” or “most difficult” course, as these are not objectively measurable. As such, any such claim is absolutely false."

The toughest academic course, according to the Guinness Book of World Records 2013, is The Bachelor of Science in Nursing. It is considered tough due to the rigorous curriculum, demanding clinical practice requirements, and the need for sharp critical thinking skills in high-pressure situations.

CA, (CHARTERED ACCOUNTANCY) has been chosen as by far the TOUGHEST COURSE in INDIA. CA is considered as the WORLD'S TOUGHEST EXAMS.

Take a set of 100 Students who enrolled for CA Course.

ENTRANCE/ CPT Pass Percentage is 20%, which means, out of them, only 20 students go to the next stage.

IPCC Pass Percentage is 8%, so, 20 x 8% = 1.6

Only 2-3 % students pass in the FINAL EXAMINATION

FINAL Pass percentage is 2-3%, so 1.6 x 2-3% = 0.032 / 0.048 out of 100 Students who enrolled for CA course.

THE CA COURSE INCLUDES ENTRANCE, ORIENTATION, IPCC, FINAL WITH 3/3.5 YEARS OF ARTICLESHIP TRAINING, ITT COURSE, GMCS COURSE, IT'S A MARATHON COURSE.
