Reviews and tips for BIOL1040

Biol 1040 is well-structured and give you lots of training on the aspects of communication, report writing and practical skills. However, since it's very content-heavy, much time will be required in this course.

BIOL1040 is actually not the worst course in terms of content and how it's taught. Much of the content is relevant for future studies especially in the area of physiology. The lecturer's are very good in terms of presenting and are very knowledgeable. People also complain about the amount of content however it's actually not that extreme. Study a few hours a week on content and you'll be ok for the final exam. The one main and big downside of 1040 is the econference which is simply a useless piece of assessment and heavily time consuming. Otherwise, 1040's a solid preparation course for 2nd year subjects with some good lecturers.

I think the reason BIOL1040 gets a bad wrap is that it is a 2nd/3rd year subject hiding as a first year. The sometimes messy teaching, reasonable workload and seemingly arbitrary marking system are in no way unique. However the actual coarse content is interesting with each module providing a new perspective on the human body (and plants too).

The workload was intense! You HAVE TO be really on top of your studying if you want any chance of doing well in this subject. The lectures moved really quickly and had a ridiculous amount of content and you were expected to know even more in-depth knowledge by doing further study. The PASS leaders were my only saviour and brought up my rating. The practicals were interesting and the lab tutors usually had some good feedback. The workshops were sometimes helpful but expected that you were experts on the topics just taught. Overall just an intense subject.

Despite the stigma around BIOL1040, I found it thoroughly enjoying to study because the content was holistic and fascinating. As someone who didn't attend lectures, the compulsory workshops were a pain in the ass because I wasn't up-to-date with the content and therefore didn't learn much in those classes.
