Something a little different.

So this posts going to be a little different tomorrow usual posts I realised I hadn't Really shared much about my own life in this blog yet So that's what I thought I would dedicate this this blog to.

So today I'm going to talk about coursework. I can't tell you how much I hate coursework, really I think it's so stupid. Mainly doing good in your coursework just means that you have a good teacher, either that or you want to just sit to your computer for hours on end typing away pointless facts which are probably irrelevant to anything that you will ever do. Maybe I hate coursework just as I'm too lazy to want to sit there and do it. But what do you actually learned from doing coursework? I think he will be much better and more reliable if coursework was removed all the percentage of its marks was decreased, at least that the mark was decreased then I feel that people's overall grades would be fairer. Some teachers change the deadlines of coursework so some people have much longer than others if this happens what's the point in coursework because it's just unfair.

Hopefully one day they will stop coursework or maybe change the system in order to make it a more reliable way of testing students because no one enjoys it. Especially me!

  4. As a student I always wondered what kind of approach my professors have to classes. I mean, to become a teacher, it depends more whether you love/enjoy teaching or not (that's what i've been told at least).

    Maybe that's the reason why teachers want to have coursework. Maybe they just want to see to what extent you, as a student, are able to understand what they teach. It is not only a way to evaluate you for your grade but also a way for the teacher to see if he knows how to pass down the knowledge.

    well that was a couple cents from me.

  6. How much is coursework usually worth? Sounds like the kind of thing I would put off and then hate myself for having to pull an all-nighter.
