Really interesting subject!! I would highly recommend this subject to anyone, especially to those who are interested in cosmology! The content is mind-blowing and very engaging, lecturers were cool and the exam wasn't hard as well.

Amazing subject! The content is really fascinating. Tutorials were good too. My lab demonstrator was really cool. He explained everything so easily and so well. The exam was really straightforward! Would 10/10 recommend if you’re even slightly interested in cosmos

Great subject. Very interesting but also very content heavy. Make sure you choose a lab partner who actually puts in effort because the labs can make you pressed for time. Revise and do the practice exams because ALOT of the qns are just regurgitated from previous years.

This subject has a lot of content especially if you don't have physics background. There is very little math and physics actually required. There are a LOT of youtube videos and online resources to help you understand the content. All you have to do is stay up to date with your work. Practicals are a bit challenging sometimes so try work together with people

I stopped attending or watching lectures after week 5 and ended up with a 78 in this subject by reading the lecture notes before the exam.

Don't worry if you're concerned about any difficult physics - there really isn't any. An easy science credit subject to fill out your timetable if you need it, but it's also pretty interesting too.

Very easy, all memorization

One of the more interesting first year subjects with easy coursework and exam. The weekly quizzes are an easy way to get 10%. There is very little physics/maths actually involved in the subject.

Quite slow to start off with, but got more interesting. Exam was far too easy.
