    If it were up to me, it would be 100% exams.
    :nah: I disagree...

    Coursework + Exam split makes it fair. Plus it's still majority exam, I mean 75%!!!

    Plus, it evaluates skill in a different way, only downside is cheating:/

    60% coursework is too much for Spanish though.

    Not really, writing and speaking are the most important really...

    So if they assessed writing within exams then fine, but itd end up worse than your coursework generally

    I think a 50/50 split would be better.

    For Bio I did one to do with starch and got an E, on my retake I did fermentation. Chemistry was thermal runaway and retake was fertilisers. Physics was about specific heat capacity. I have barely revised yet so can't do the specimen papers yet.

    no... as a fairly sure guess im thinking about 63 =A*
    with 75 = 160 ums

    i read from the examination report for physics last year that barely anybody got more than 65/75

    I'm guessing that's around the 70 mark point roughly.
