GCSE-ers and A-Level-ers alike, who really loathes on the fact of doing coursework? Yes, they're an easier way of getting marks, but who, likes, hate doing it?

I hate it. Soo much work exams would be better. I wish you could do just one exam at the end of year 2 like you could in the old days.

I'm doing a National Diploma in Health and Social Care which is ALL coursework. 12 units in 2 years. So I do coursework everyday, I hate it.

I hate the type of coursework that drags on too long like the business coursework I'm doing now. Loved doing my geography coursework though...I chose 'depends on subject' although on the whole I'd rather avoid it.

At GCSE I hated it, always used to get crap marks because I couldn't motivate myself to do it.
At A Level I'm quite enjoying it, I think because I've learnt how to manage my time better so I don't get as stressed over it, and I've realised that it can take a bit of the pressure off when it comes to doing exams.

I absolutely hate it. I don't see it as getting easy marks either, I work much better in, and prefer exam conditions.

I like coursework! I'm not good in exam situations, so working hard on coursework to get a good mark helps me relax as I know I have something to pull my mark up a bit
I've LOVED doing my English coursework especially for A Level. Firstly, an Angela Carter style story + commentary and this year an Alan Bennett style monologue + commentary!

Always left until the last minute, requiring an all-nighter for an inadequate piece of work. I'd rather everything be based on exams. Although, English essays were quite enjoyable at times.

As a general rule I despise it. English coursework is OK, but anything like geography/business is just horrific.

By old days I mean when my parents did them back in the time when O levels existed
