I am going to study criminology with law and I wanted to know how hard the criminology exam is and how much exams there is on this degree m. I’ve looked on my university website who say that 18.2% of the study time on this course is spent in lectures, seminars, tutorials. You will be taught through seminars and tutorials, group work, practical experience and lectures. I wanted to know if there are loads of exams or if the exams are a massive part of the degree as i just can not do exams. I haven’t don’t exams since GCSE and I hated them so much which is why I did a BTEC. It says there is main examination/assessment period around May/June. I’ve literally looked everywhere on what the exam is going to consist of and how difficult it is because if it is I rather not do this as I know I would probably fail. Anyone who does criminology with any other subject like law

University courses are taught in a style which is modular. Some modules may have exams, but each exam won't count for a huge percentage of the year. Even if a modules has an exam counting for 100% of the module (which is rare), this exam will only be one 8th of your year. Some universities will also hold exams in January too. Exams are different at university a lot of the time. At Keele you can leave the exam hall halfway through if you want. See if you can find specific assessment details about modules online for the universities you're looking at. Or failing that, email the departments asking about the amount of exams.
