Hi there! I'm a recent University graduate currently offering tutoring services. My main area of...
Great unit, fascinating content. Challenging at times but definitely recommend it. The structure of the course has changed and no longer includes a group assignment.

To be honest, I hated this unit but I am not a biology-minded person. The text book and weekly lectures were well explained. However the group assignments had nothing to do with the content and were unnecessary. They were also marked harshly. Additionally, if you get a dodgy group, there goes your mark. The exam was the worst one I have ever sat. You needed a dictionary to even understand the question let alone the answer. Alot of students struggled with it but on the other hand I think they scaled people because of its difficulty. To do well in this unit you need to have a good grasp of biology and understand neurotransmitters etc.

This is a fantastic biological unit. Although, some students find it very challenging in nature. True, it can be, especially for those not particularly scientifically-minded, but it is still thoroughly enjoyable. The unit materials were of a very high quality, and the textbook can be kept and used in HPS395 should students wish to take that as an elective later in the degree. The only thing I did not like was that it had a group assignment as one of the assessment tasks. If you like group assignments, then you may not have an issue with it, but my experience was not a great one and just threw a spanner in the works, so to speak. Just added some uneccessary stress. I would absolutely recommend this unit to students, with a note to make sure they keep up with weekly content, because come exam time, you will be hit with a literary freight-train.
