    I've just finished the second year of my Biochemistry degree. It is worth noting that each semester you take 5 modules. In first year we had a double credit coursework module spread over two semesters, along with individual pieces of coursework for a few of our modules worth around 20% (of the module). In second year the first semester was relatively coursework free, with about 5 pieces of coursework worth 20% of a module each. Second semester however involved 2 whole coursework modules, one being an extensive lab project and write-up, and one consisting of a number of problem sheets, each in a specific area of biochemistry e.g. NMR, X-ray crystallography. On top of that we had another 3 pieces of coursework worth 20% of a module each. As for third year, I assume we have more coursework. I know that we have a final project worth 18 credits (3 modules), but that's about it.

    Obviously, this is only for one degree and they may differ greatly. Also, the more coursework you have, the less stressful exams are at the end of semester!
