A disappointing unit. Imagine being lost in a sea of information with little direction. Good grades are almost luck. Fingers crossed.

There was no consistency between tutors and the marking was very subjective. Assessments were a bit of a mess with very broad requirements which made it hard to feel like you were on the right track. A huge chunk of my cohort didn't even receive their major essay (40%) marks back before the exam. The exam itself is quite hard and the practice exam didn't really help prepare you for what was to come. Overall not the worst topic and the integrating psychology revision content is all very interesting. A word for the wise - learn to memorise statistics.

This unit takes a lot of effort. If you keep up to date with your lectures and do all of the assignments/assessments while watching the lectures, you will do OK. You definitely need to do extra readings/look at other websites in order to get your head around the different tests/analyses, but if you keep up to date, it is a good unit.

A unit that requires a lot of work. Need to look at things from a very integrative approach, and the final exam is very thorough and specific - well worth ensuring that you have all of the notes covered and attending all of the tutorials. Also worth getting started on all of the assessments as early as possible and speaking to your tutor regularly to understand exactly what they are looking for in your assessment.

Easily one of the worst units I’ve done in my degree. Placement was interesting but the classes felt so pointless, and the assessments were awful. Little to no connection to the effort made on placement, so all that hard work amounts to terrible marks. Also so subjective with little direction, and the exam was the worst I’ve ever sat - questions about specific things in the 60-page unit guide, about obscure statistics from tutorial slides...This subject left a really bitter taste in my mouth.

Similar experience of this psych unit with all the other reviews. Marked so harshly and it is completely subjective to each placement experience. Tutors mark very differently to each other as I had a similar standard to a friend but received a pass and they received a distinction. I recommend choosing your tutors wisely as it would greatly benefit you.

This is by far the worst unit I have ever completed at Macquarie University. The assessments are marked very harshly, but provide no detail on how to improve the quality of work. Results are also released whenever the tutors manage to finish them and even after waiting a month there is no comments left within the essay, only an overall short comment and a qualitative mark. Students doing well in other subjects have received passes throughout. The practice exam consisted of extremely specific questions on unimportant content. For example students were required to recall the reference from the second sentence of a required reading. Overall, a horrible unit with subjective marking that has very little academic value.

Worst subject ever. I honestly hated every second of it. The tutorials are not helpful at all as you sit in a room and “reflect”. The marking is incredibly subjective, I was literally advised by my tutor to make up my assignment and then got awarded a pass for it. The practice exam included really silly nit-picky questions such as specific statistics included in lectures, not so much the overall principle they are attempting to teach us. Overall I have learnt nothing and this unit is a waste of time and money it is ridiculous that it marks the end of undergrad studies. Extremely bitter taste left in my mouth thank you macquarie psychology.

The placement itself was great and I found it really valuable, but that was the only decent part of this unit. The content was incredibly disorganised and didn't provide much information that enhanced our learning. Tutorials felt quite pointless as they mostly were about reflecting on our experiences rather than helping us get through content or improve our work. Marking for the written assessment tasks is very subjective and extremely harsh (students who get HDs in all other subjects barely scraping a P). Also, while some tutors marked on time and returned feedback to students others did not, meaning many students went into exam period with no feedback on their work. This is really unfair, why should some of the cohort be disadvantaged? Why release marks at different times? Surely you need to check for inter-rater reliability? Oh, probably not, because the marking was so subjective. Exam questions are irrelevant too, and many questions assess your memory for minute, specific details rather than your overall understanding and appreciation for the unit. Very disappointing unit, especially considering it is a capstone!

Having a practical aspect to the course made content engaging and relevant. However, doing well in the subject will take a lot of studying useless facts and info, as well as pulling answers from thin air.
