    I also won't be affected, however I have family and friends that will be. I think it will be much much harder to get the top grades (9?), this will be for the extremely smart people. We tried one of the new maths exams in class, and we struggled on some of it as a top set all predicted As and A*s.

    Glad it's not me

    Unlikely to affect anyone. Regardless of what teachers may say; once you've been working in a full time job for a couple of years no-once cares about exam results anymore.

    They are a terrible idea. People learn in different ways, some are good over long periods of time is coursework and others perform best when put under pressure. Both skills are extremely valuable and by effectively getting rid of coursework lots of kids will fail simply because they were designed to learn in a different way. Furthermore, coursework is far more like a real job as you will be given projects where youhave to meet deadline and collaborate. You won't be stuck in a room all alone in silence trying to figure it out.
