    I seem to do so well in exam but when it comes to coursework I feel like I have a mess of uncertainty to work on I don't know what to write and forget what I am doing half the time so I end up getting E's and D's in coursework and C's in my exams...

    The other thing I hate is when I feel I meet a criteria and the teacher says I have not it just makes me think WTF I already wrote that stuff....

    I find this really annoying as I feel that on results day coursework will have just destroyed my chances.

    Really?! I feel like I'm the complete opposite... I always much higher grades in coursework because it lets me take my time when I'm doing it, unlike in exam condition! Also, I tend to make silly mistakes in exams a lot of the times when I rush, but with coursework, I can afford to check it through over thoroughly.

    Prefer coursework as its predictable and you get the opportunity to put the effort in over an extended period rather than the more variable exam, which has a bigger luck element involved.

    I hate it too. I find it much harder to do well in coursework than exams. I guess I work better under pressure.
