    For my uni course there are some optional modules I have to pick, some of which are 100% coursework based. I have done coursework in some of my subjects through out A level and GCSE and never struggled with it, however I wondered how people have found it at uni? Is it a lot harder to achieve good marks?
    Thanks

    In the Arts & Humanities you do have to lower your view on what a 'good' mark is. 60%+ is considered good, with 80% being the effective cap unless work is absolutely exceptional.

    It depends on the subject. I think it is easier to get a higher grade in maths/science based coursework than in an exam but as stated previously, it's quite difficult to get past the 70+ mark in humanities coursework. Having done chemistry and a few optional geography modules in my first year, i have experience with this.
