Evil things that you need to pass if you want a degree. Unless your doing an "Arty" degree.

Suz Chilestone disagrees. My degree is a Bachelor of ARTS, and how many exams did I have last summer? as a second year, yes, those people commonly believed to be slackers. I had 8, and most of those were for modules with 40% continuous weekly assessment. "Arty" degrees are bloody hard.
