Reviews and tips for PSY1011

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.

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 ^^

Loved psych in high school but did not really enjoy PSY1011, seemed that a lot of stuff was not relevant. Some of the lecturers are really good and engaging but others are not. Assignments are confusing and the tutors seem to give inconsistent advice and explanations about them. Start your assignments early as they are not related to any of the lectures and all rely on independent research, and will take you a long time to get right.

This is a good psychology foundation unit that would be interesting not only to people who want to become psychologists but for everyone in general! Contact hours are minimal and attendance not compulsory, however tutorials are not relevant to the content and therefore useless. Overall a good unit!
