Not with the exam boards we have, I guess it must depend on what your school offers

All GCSEs in those subjects apart from Maths are required to have controlled assessment. I suspect you are taking IGCSE, not GCSE.

Maths
Religious Studies
Psychology
Law
General Studies
Sociology

Edit: Plus Biblical Hebrew, Latin & Classical Greek if you're that dedicated.

It is possible to take almost any subject without coursework if you ak the IGCSE rather than the GCSE.

French definitely involves coursework (you have to produce at least four pieces of coursework).

When talking about controlled assessment on TSR, it is called coursework 95% of that time. The OP is asking for courses that are assessed purely by exams.

Yeah, do IGCSEs. They don't have coursework.

Some GCSEs that are purely exam based include Maths, RS, Sociology and Psychology.

Most GCSE's do contain coursework and it gives you an advantage to cope better under stress, although, it still will stress you- its your GCSE's. Religious Education doesn't, food tech may not, Drama contains little coursework, but a LOT of time need to be spent working on it.

I think all do apart from Maths and RE. However, don't rely on this. If you put your mind set to it, trust me, and believe, you will get there. May grades were quite low but with in a term I've jumped of B's and even A's!

Do a subject you enjoy. That you know you'll be proud of.
