    I have the option to go to Edinburgh Uni or Napier Uni to study Business. Assesment -wise, At Edinburgh uni, it's 75% written exams- at Napier it's 70% coursework or so in first or second year. As i have problems with panicking and anxiety, im thinking Napier as there wont be so much pressure on exams. Also , some people have said that its easier to get a better mark at Napier? How true is this?
    One of the University comparison sites said that at Edinburgh for Business, 85% of people get a 2:1 or above, but at Napier this is 45%? I would have thought Napier would be higher since there isn't so much exams?

    It comes down to where you would be happiest and most able to achieve. Exam results differ for lots of reasons but if you're happy at your university that will definitely help you as a student. Have you visited either of them?

    Find the forums for UoE and NU and talk to current students, see what they have to say. Look a the modules offered. It's a difficult choice but the best way to make it is to be as fully informed as possible.
