    Yes, I think modular would be a million times better than linear. It would be so much better having the exams spaced out more and only being tested on select areas of the sylabus each time. What's more, I think I would be less stressed - for example, my Chemistry exam today was worth a rediculous 80% of the total GCSE.....doing it in modules means each exam is worth less....I wish my school offered modular

    Same with my year, and I also agree that the number of Modular exams would be too much. Some of our Science teachers moaned that the year 10s were having a much harder time from doing Modular rather than linear. Not reall our problem, as it was them that decided to change.

    These yr 10s will also have to do that stupid IB thing instead of A Levels lol.

    we had multiple choice for our end of years y7-9, 70multiple choice and then two long questions, trust me people failed, its acutally easier to fail multiple choice as least when your writin it, you may write somethin along the lines coz you aint ge ta clue and grab a mark, but mult choice you jsut guess and its wrong, lol

    Well whatever, i think coursework should a) be optional and b) should have more importance eg. 25% in Geography for a 130 page piece of work =\ taht sucks.

    coursework sucks because everyone cheats. modules suck because you don't learn it as well and it makes exams easier.
