    Yeah I do. Coursework is so annoying, especially for Art which if you don't meet your teacher's tick list you are screwed.

    Coursework typically contributes more to your final mark than exams, but I prefer exams anyway.

    I seriously hate this type of subjects : Art ,food ,graphics , textiles etc...60% is coursework which means you can't even do bad on it.I regret taking food the coursework is too long and too much thinking. as in our school is compulsory you take one subject from Dt(graphics,food and textiles)Art,business studies and electronics.All subjects are so terrible.

    I prefer exams because I tend to do much better under pressure.

    I am a pressure junkie when it comes to doing decent work; I left writing up many of my assignments this year until like an hour before the deadline lol. So yes, I prefer exams. Some exams can even be fun, especially if they are either just a breeze/everything you expected, or a manageable/engaging challenge.
