Reviews and tips for PSYC105

I think there was a new unit convenor for 2016, and she was quite organised. There was one major assignment a group presentation and an exam. There were also weekly statistics a quizzes which weren't too hard. The topics explored were interesting and most lectures were engaging. The unit is not too hard to pass if you are willing to put in some effort.

Very disorganised. Content heavy. Not impressed.

Content-wise, although this unit is highly theory-based, it explores some very interesting concepts in different fields of psychology. However, I (and many other people) found this unit to be quite poorly organised - a prime example of this: the research hypotheses which we needed to test were not released until a week before the group presentation was due. Also, the last lecture (which was 4 or so days before the exam) wasn't even a revision lecture. Luckily, my tute class had a friendly tutor who tried her best to alleviate the stress that came with this unit. In terms of assignments, the research report was marked quite harshly given this is a first-year unit (around 2/3 either failed or, like me, got a pass). Don't let that scare you, though; if you study the content and know it, you can easily make up for the research report in the exam. TL;DR: interesting concepts, marred by very poor organisation and hard marking.

Not the most organised or well structured unit, that's for sure. Don't let this scare you though. I definitely didn't study everyday (listened to all the lectures in the last week before the exam) but i managed a Distinction. You can do well, just make sure you do well in the research report which is worth 35%. Ask your tutor heaps of questions etc.. as they are the ones who mark it and know what they want to see. Not the best unit but definitely not as bad as some may suggest. You just need to take control of your own learning a little bit more and come to terms with the fact that you will not be spoon feed and some tasks (such as the group task) need to be done really quickly.

The textbook is interesting. But I have to say this subject is really poor organised. For example, we didn't get the data for presentation until a week before it. And they expected us to cover such huge information in 11 minutes (the whole research!!!!). Also,four days before the final exam, we still had a lecture... You really have to work hard for this unit. Look through all the supporting materials. If you have to take this unit (like me), GOOD LUCK!!!
