I found this unit very interesting with a broad range of related topics covered. I found the prices to be pretty useless and a waste of time although the anatomy practicals were interesting. I used flashcards to memorise literally every part of each lecture which sounds like a lot but was actually extremely manageable, even more so if I had done it over the semester (use Anki). Many people struggled with the midsem exam and final exam but I didn’t because of this and ended up scoring much better than I thought. The cell profile report wasn’t too difficult if you have previously done SCI2010 which I found much more difficult. However the marking was extremely different between tutors and there were huge discrepancies between markers so that may come down to luck. Julia is also lovely and a good lecturer who is easy to understand and very approachable.

Really enjoyed this subject. Julia the coordinator is lovely and very supportive of students. I felt the content was really well taught and the unit structured very well. The in semester assessments were really easy (almost everyone was getting 90%+) but the mid-semester exam and end of year exam were much harder asking for the application of specific concepts, very doable if you study and stay up-to-date with the content but lots of people got tripped up because they expect "an easy HD". Really loved the unit and I'm looking forward to more units in this department.

This unit is really organised with straightforward labs, open book online exams and an easy midsem. There is a fair bit of content but if you stay up to date it isn't difficult to HD.

This unit must have been given a shake up because this year, it was not an "easy unit to HD" at all. The lectures were broad and the exams were specific as previously mentioned by someone else. The online lectures were hard to keep up with. You really have no idea what will be on the exam due to no practice questions etc.

Did not like this subject. No practice exams were made available, nor were there any reviews allowed of the previously assessed content. The resources made available throughout the unit seemed re-used as though the subject had not been revised in years. Lectures were extremely broad with extremely specific questions being asked on both the mid semester and final exams.

Lots of content, but not too difficult. The best tutors always seem to be the DEV ones for me (having done 2022 as well), incredibly helpful and really want you to do well.

Very easy to get a high grade: 2 easy online open book tests worth 5% each are given answers to all questions in labs by demonstrators 9 page report relatively straightforward midsem and final exams are multiple choice

JULIA YOUNG IS AMAZING!!!! Super supportive and keeps her students' best interests at heart. She's a driven lady with a lot of wisdom to give. She made me love dev bio and is the reason im seriously thinking of majoring in the subject. Content was easy to learn but required constant revising which made it very manageable to study before the exam. Easily one of the best units.

This unit was easy to keep up with and incredibly useful and fascinating if you have an interest in biology and development! Julia is incredibly enthusiastic and helpful, and the lectures and pracs are well-organised and thorough. The lecture review questions are super helpful and going through them in the lab tutorials really help to consolidate the knowledge. The cell profile report can be really interesting as you have a lot of freedom to choose your discussion topic, and going through the developmental process for your cell type really helps to put together all of the developmental processes you've learned about throughout the semester. I found that the unit is structured in such a way that it doesn't feel like that much content until you start talking to someone about it and realise how much you've learned (assuming you've been studying throughout the semester, of course)! I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking at an interesting minor that's applicable to everyday life, or just an elective that is interesting without being too stressful!
