    Hi,

    I am just curious on what assessment method should be better for the computer science course?

    Is it more ideal to go to a uni that assess the pupils by coursework or by written exams?

    Written exams are usually for testing more theoretical aspects of the course, and coursework for practical. Both are useful, but I personally think CS is a theoretical subject and so exams are better suited, though many (most?) degrees are usually just software engineering with a bit of CS thrown into later modules. I'm a fan of CS theory though, so that's just my opinion.
