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.

Definitely enjoyed the unit. The convener was great, and my tutor really helped when we were writing up the assignment.

Students are spoon-fed weekly in tutorial bits and pieces that finally emerge to become the critical details to write a research report. Talk about the blind leading the blind. I had no understanding of what the topic actually was, even though I was present and paying attention in all tutorials. A very painful unit. Worst experience to date (I studied a whole degree in science before doing this unit). Giving this unit one star is a stretch (zero stars from me).

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.
