A vast majority do at some stage of the course, mainly so that it acts as a form of assessment for your research skills.

There is very little way around it unfortunately.

But in terms of coursework as an entire module; I know that Geography normally does; there was a unit of coursework based on the Field Trip in the AS, and an extended research essay in the A2 which was half a module.

In AQA Economics, one module in A2 is a cursework/case study. In Maths certain modules include coursework as about 20% of the module. Politics has a synoptic module. Can anyone tell me what that means???

A synoptic module is taking everything you've learnt over the other various modules, and then applying them all in the same context/exam question. Basically it's seeing how everything fits in together. RS Ethics and Philosophy also has one of those... as does Maths I believe.

For AQA..

Biology has a full coursework module at AS but not at A-level, and..
Physics doesnt have one at either, it is worth about 30% of a module in both years
