I thought this subject would be interesting and chill but it was much harder than I imagined. The assessments were split into weekly online quizzes worth 20%, 2 written assignments (worth 20% and 40%) and a group presentation (worth 20%). Much of the content in the weekly quizzes were not covered in lectures and tutorials. Our written assignments were marked by Sophia Lin who was extremely harsh and quite unreasonable. These assignments required tremendous time and effort, only to receive lackluster marks from her who oftentimes did not provide proper reasons for deducing marks. The final written assignment (A4 Capstone Paper worth 40%) was vaguely explained. The group presentation was marked by our tutor Aidan who was more reasonable and lenient. If you are looking to boost your WAM/GPA I would advise staying away from this course as you will be spending hours upon hours grinding assignments and receive a final grade grade which is likely to be lower than for your core courses. I'd give this course 1 star but I'd like to leave an extra star to show my appreciation for Aidan and Rebecca who were great tutors. Rebecca (who we had for the first few weeks) was also a great lecturer but unfortunately Sophia really ruined my experience with this course.

The subject was quite easy going but it was just so boring. It wasn't as interesting or fun as I thought it would be. The lectures are no different to any other science lecture, which is a shame because the course is about physical activity and you would think that would be a good opportunity to do something interactive. I had a Sophia and Shaun as my lecturers. None of the online quizzes you do even correlate to what you have learnt in the lectures. But good thing there's Mr Google. For group presentation, make sure you get straight to the point to the topic. I provided the background information for my topic out of my group members and I lost heavy marks for that whereas everyone else discussed something that directly related to the topic so they weren't penalised, which I think is very stupid and unfair.

Very chill subject. You have an hour of lectures and an hour of tutorials every week. Tutorials tend to finish early and rarely go overtime. Assignments are fairly simple. The course is almost like a lifestyle program rather than an academic subject. I had rebecca as my lecturer and she was very sweet + engaging. It was nice to have a break during the lecture where we would stand up and do something rather than sit for an hour.
