Choosing third year modules: exams vs. coursework watch

    • Thread Starter

    We have to submit our optional module choices soon. I am leaning towards choosing mostly coursework modules because I prefer to have assessments throughout the year than to have 5 big finals at the end of the year.

    If I go with the options I am considering right now, my third year modules will be:

    Equity & Trusts (final exam)
    Commercial Law (final exam)
    Issues in Corporate Governance (coursework)
    Rich Law, Poor Law - basically taxation (coursework)
    Law and Economics (coursework)
    Final Year Research Project (5000 words)

    So overall I will have two finals, six 2000 word essays and a dissertation.

    Do you think this is a good strategy? Should I swap one of the coursework modules for an exam module?

    P.S: My heart is really set on getting a first class degree.
