When I chose this unit, I had no clue just how much TA-variability would affect students, including me. For those interested in developmental biology, this is a no brainier. However, be prepared from nearly 40% of your work to be based on the sole judgements of 1~2 TAs who specialise in a certain branch of biology (not always developmental biology). The biggest problem with this unit was, in my opinion, the online lectures. No offence to the lecturer who made them, but it felt like something tacked on last minute and often unrelated to our actual lecture series. Some of the online lectures were supremely basic (read: what is DNA transcription), making it almost wasteful, whilst others were filled with tedious details (read: memorize the different growth factor, signalling events & receptors) you had to memorise. A few were interesting and complemented the labs well, but for the most part I believe the online classes could have easily been integrated into the main lecture series. More problematic, however, was the cell profile report, Worth 30% this year, the spread of marks felt really random and it wasn't fully clear how or why some students lost marks. It felt more like a gamble than a proper assignment, and I would have loved to have the assignment at the very least cross marked (we had no indication if this was the case). Overall, I personally didn't like the assignments but this may be due to COVID. The actual content is interesting and relevant, however make sure you are okay with the different assignments & online lectures before you proceed.

I personally found the content taught in this unit really interesting. The actual workload for this unit can get pretty high though due to the amount of content. The unit coordinators/lecturers are lovely and really willing to help students out. I ended up having to do this unit entirely online, and while most of the lecturers were relatively easy to understand and seemed to know their content pretty well, some of the last lectures were difficult to understand. This could just be due to the unit being run online though. The tutors in this unit were also super helpful when it came to writing up the cell profile report (the major assignment in this unit). I definitely wouldn't say this is an easy unit by any means (it was actually the trickiest unit i've had so far due to the amount of content), but if you stay on top of the content from the beginning of the unit, it's definitely HD-able!

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.
