Reviews and tips for PSY1011

Fresh off the exam I'll give my review of PSY1011. Lots of different areas are covered and it is quite interesting, but consultations are pretty much useless unless it is the week before or of the assignment submission date. That being said, it really depends on your tutor because mine didn't really help at all and we received proper assignment clarification by another tutor that subbed our lesson once. Whatever is taught during the consultation is not examinable so you're not missing out on content by not attending (they aren't compulsory). Assignments are boring and really vague, but you can get a distinction on them even if you leave it last minute. Lectures, like all uni lectures, can just be watched at home unless you want to listen/participate in the discussions that some lecturers do. They are two-hour long lectures so I'd recommend coffee if you tend to get sleepy during such. All the lecturers were really good because they know their stuff. Lecture content is examinable so it's best to watch all the lectures even if you don't attend, and this year one lecture stream was live-streamed every week. The exam was surprisingly easy and I crammed the content a few days prior. That being said if you do PSY1011 make textbook notes !! They'll help with the weekly quizzes and will help you avoid cramming and stress because you might have a tight exam schedule. Overall it is a good subject if you like Psych or do not completely despise Psych but don't be shocked if there is a lot to memorise and understand. I did it as an elective without completing VCE Psych. It's a doable subject even if some things seem useless at times ^^

Very easy marks, very easy to do well. Really easy to understand and digest the content, especially if you find it interesting. Great first-year unit.

the assignments are so confusing and barely any guidance is given at all

Interesting content and overall unit limited by pitiful study resources (correct past quiz answers are hidden, no summary lectures/ small 20 question revision quiz). A word of caution for those who don't learn well from textbook readings.

Did not understand what to do for the assignments. The consultations were boring, the tutor basically just read out the lecture slides. Activities in the consultations were not helpful. On the bright side, I found the content learned in lectures quite interesting, many topics were covered in VCE.
