    I'm going to apply for Pharmacy this year and have looked at several uni's. Some have more coursework (percentage) than exams contributing to overall grades. So how do you guys feel about coursework and exams and which do you like better???
    Any help appreciated

    It doesn't really matter what everyone else prefers, it's down to your learning style and what suits you better. From previous study you should have some sort of idea which you find easier and which you perform better at.*

    Hi Charlotte, I just wanted to get an idea of how everyone else feels. Personally, I like coursework better than exams. I was just wondering if it will be too overwhelming having (more) coursework with (less) exams on top.

    You will come out with the same qualification at the end as those who do more exams so in theory the workload should be the same, just with a different assessment method. Obviously an exam would take less time to do than coursework would take to write, but should work out similarly when you factor in revision time.*
