Reviews and tips for PSYC105

Very disorganised. Content heavy. Not impressed.

Anonymous, Semester 2, 2015

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!!!

Assessment (2015): Research Report (35%, very high fail rate), Group presentation (2 week preparation time), Multiple choice exam (50%). Tips: Study every day. Make a study group first thing. You have to pass this unit to continue with Psychology at Macquarie. It is very poorly run, information is not communicated well, by anyone, tutors even seem lost. You really have to fend for yourself. I learned a lot. In conjunction with tandem STATISTICS, you will cover: Health Psychology, Social Psychology, Perception, Organisational Psychology, Cognition, Language, and Developmental Psychology.
