    I love exams, I hate assignments
    is there a way to avoid them? can I ask to calculate my grade on my exam basis only?

    You can't drop your assignment marks like that. All you can do is, where possible, choose modules with a high exam component.

    Nope. As above, you just have to look for the best fit course for you.

    Uni assessment is generally designed to give everyone a fair shout, as you rarely find people who like both exams and coursework. I had the opposite problem to you - usually sailed through assignments but landed lower marks in exams because my memory doesn't handle the "quick hit" approach to data retrieval.

    I like both. As in an equal weighing. 2 modules in coursework then 2 modules in exams. That's how I like it.

    Just try and pick modules that have a higher % in exams. If your course doesn't do that, then you picked the wrong uni honey!
