It may depend on your exam board but as much as I know there isn't any. You have an ISA which is basically a monitored practical. The ISA is pretty easy yes :) they basically tell you the questions and how to answer them.

ya it;s sort of like that but we have to write and investigate many practicals and other things which i have not yet been told about.

it depends what you are studying. in my opinion chemistry and physics is harder than biology. however itt does seem harder but its easy to get high grrades.

Depends how your mind really works. I'm more of an exam person myself. Using memory. I find coursework rather confusing and not clear. There is never really a clear answer you really just have to do all the stuff on the markscheme (which dont always make sense as the language seems to be designed to confuse you)

Personally I screwed up my coursework only getting a high B and a low C which did spoil my grade a bit. Then again...the teacher made us research off the internet :s

It's easy! You can retake it as many times as there different ISAs! I got A* in all of them so I was really happy!

Tbh, if you're with AQA it's pretty easy. You just do the ISA's and they can be retaken as many times as necessary. You barely need to revise. Just do the practical well, label the graphs and table (remembering units) and then do your best in the exam part. Most of the answers for the ISA's are common sense anyway :)

easy as chips

It's really easy as you have time to do some research on the topic.

We did so many pieces of c/w for science you tend to get the idea of what you need to do to get marks, I personally found it more easier, maybe even the easiest c/w than other subjects such as English. But it also depends on the exam board, I had OCR & did about 12 c/w over the 2 years (only the best ones get submitted btw) Good Luck :)
