Reviews and tips for BIOL10003

A truly fascinating subject that delves deep into the history of human evolution and how our genes play such a vital role in our lives. Though there is a lot of content to study and remember, most of it is very interesting and overall the subject is quite rewarding

This subject was really enjoyable and reminded me why I chose Biomedicine. The first half of the course is very content-heavy and involves a lot of memorization, it's essentially an introduction to Microbiology. The second half covered Genetics, which relied more on analytical thinking and skills. The practicals complimented the lecture content very well, but the prac assessments were tricky and required quite a bit of preparation. I imagine this subject would be challenging for those who did not do Year 12 Biology, but it is not hard to do well if you stay reasonably on top of the content. The tutorials were really helpful too, not compulsory but I highly recommend going to prevent falling behind. You'll thank yourself at the end of semester.

Great basic biology course. Resources are in abundance.

Pretty straight forward unit. All lecturers present a ton of information that is not examinable, so proceed with caution. Pracs are painful and pre/post quizzes will catch you out with wording. Was told that every year, prac 2 has the worst "in prac" results for all students. remember to go back to basics from semester 1 and you'll do fine. Genetics was interesting, loved the PCR videos.

This subject covers microbiology, parasites, human evolution, disease control and genetics. You literally have to memorise almost every fungus, bacteria, protist, hominin in the lectures so make sure you do that before exams as they will ask you questions like "What class of protists is Plasmodium?" The content is very interesting and straightforward. Practicals are a pain and I found them quite boring but they are easy marks. Tutorials are useful as they go through practice problems. The 8am lectures can be a bit of a drag but you get used to it. Or you could always watch them online. Overall, interesting and well organised subject.
