I was enjoying this unit until we had to move online. We only got to actually interact in class once and it was ok doing the first assessment but after that, we had to practically teach ourselves. We still had lectures but classes were replaced with modules and they were not even weekly. No interaction with tutors and assessments became difficult because of this and on top of it, had to practically read up on the experiments since we couldn't attend campus. most of the readings were a little outdated and each reading was different so had to teach yourself to find the answer to things as they did not provide any recording of experiments done by the teacher or how we would have had to do it. don't leave things to the last minute as it is content-heavy and the exam is very specific and detailed. Good Luck!

A bit of a dry subject, and the exams have intensely specific questions. Change your tutor early if you don’t think they suit your learning style.

Bit of a dry subject, if you have a choice - choose Systems Physiology (BIOL247). Practicals for me (and my prac class) were pretty useless, the tutors didn't really do much except stand at the front whilst we worked through worksheets. In saying this, members in the other class thoroughly enjoyed practicals and their tutors, so it's really a hit-and-miss. Only thing I can recommend, if you find your tutor is not helpful the first week, change whilst you can. Also, keep up with all the work as there is a fair amount of content in this subject. Past papers can vary substantially for this subject so don't rely on them as a major study tool.

Very interesting subject. Most of the content is fairly straight forward, but, you have to spend a lot of time memorising it, especially the anatomy side of things. Make sure to do the past exams, hint.

I found it so super interesting, and yes it's certainly a challenging unit but the things you learn are amazing! A LOT of content, so stay on top of it weekly and ACTUALLY REVISE weekly-ish.
