Coursework is given either to students or trainees with an aim to make them learn different things. It can be assigned by teachers or it might take up as a self-taught activity. Coursework is a wide term which includes various types of activities such as practice paper, essay or dissertation writing, researching, learning lessons, experimentation, etc. Students take up coursework at high school, college and universities and their grades are ultimately added to their exam scores to determine the overall course’s grade. Coursework is that substitute to exams that students go for as in the case of coursework they get a chance to complete their task by having access to other books, notes, the internet and any other material. Coursework is given by teachers to make students broaden their knowledge, improve research skills, engage them in brainstorming and mind mapping so that they construct and solve practical problems based on their theoretical knowledge. Coursework can be individual as well as group task and therefore students learn how to work individually and also to be a team player. It brings out the hidden leader in them. In UK ‘controlled assessment’ has removed coursework and students work under exam condition i.e. no guidance from teachers, tight control over accessible resources in order to prevent cheating. Coursework requires lots of hard work and focus but with the time that students have they try to rush and tries to complete the work ASAP and ends up in compromising on lots of areas. They might submit a copied and mistake ridden paper. Lack of motivation is another thing which makes coursework a daunting task. Students spent nights to complete their work and when do not get results they feel demotivated and inferior. Lack of time management, and poor planning makes coursework writing a challenge. Also, dearth of resources and lack of interest pulls students back and they do not show much passion about writing.
