Yes it has exams but only a small %. Look at the specification. You have to pass the exams, but you can get a bare pass. Your coursework is influential but if you do poorly in exams you have to make up the difference elsewhere.

In the first year you'll do two mandatory courseworks.
One is on Social media - looking at how businesses use social media to get more customers.
The other one is unit 2 - databases. This is a 10 hr external exam throughout the week. GL for this.
Both are worth 25% so 50% in total.
In yr2
You have the exam unit 1 . Got the highest mark in my year group. It's worth 33%. Its not that hard. You only needed 45/90 for a Distinction. Just print the spec off and if you can buy the book which helps with the exam and database exam too. I think its £11 from WHSmith.
Finally, depending on your teachers either a spreadsheet thing or (what we did) creating a website- 17%.
Basically you have to ace the exam (D), and (Ds )in everything else If you want a D* overall ( I got this).
Make sure you do your best in the first two topics it takes the stress off.
