Very challenging. Expect it to be the most time consuming of your courses, and it will require great dedication.
As far as course content is concerned, I was disappointed with what we have studied. We've been doing Nazi Germany/WW1 and Stuart England. Very politically based, as all history is, giving politics students an unfair advantage in my opinion.
I was hoping for ancient history, and more extensive culture (Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Eygpt, Feudal Japan). Unfortunately this year I've found myself revising a lot of vote counts and party policies. Slightly boring to be honest.
Anyway that's just subjective! It's up to you and your interests. Remember to put 100% into your coursework as it will serve as a good base when going into the exam. I managed to get an A for my coursework and hopefully I can get at least a B in my exam. I much prefer coursework to tests as it doesn't drill me for all my knowledge on the spot; so naturally I don't perform as well in my exams. Anyway, take it if you are willing to embrace the workload!
