Hi I am doing a double science major, in Anatomy and Human Biology and Microbiology and Immunology....

Reviews

The lab reports require a lot of effort if you want to do well. There were 4 which was 10% each. However, the content isn't hard to learn, this is coming from someone who never took biology or human biology in high school. The exam was 72 multiple choice questions, was worth 40% and it was not too difficult. You also get 10% for just completing quizzes every week. There is also 10% for pre-lab quizzes which are not hard if you read the pre-lab material and understand what the lab requires you to do.

If you picked up this unit because you thought it was going to make for a simple Intro to Bio unit and an easy HD elective, think again. I spent way more time than I expected to on this unit - mainly because of lab reports that were due pretty much every 2-3 weeks, based on our in-lab results and are very detailed. These were marked very strictly (worth 10% each) and the average for each report was usually a 6/10, which isn't even a Distinction. If you're like me and enjoy writing and generally like doing reports, this may work to your advantage but be prepared to really put in effort for each of them to get a decent mark or you could risk pulling down your overall grade. This unit was not the best organisation-wise, and the lecturers were very hard to understand, but the final exam is all MCQ. The content is really tough to learn alongside other units IF you are someone with little to no biology background - don't put yourself through this unless necessary. However, if you have good knowledge of Biology and basic Ecology from beforehand, you should be able to get atleast a 70% on the paper with minimal revision.

I would NEVER do this unit unless it is a core unit. for any reviews which you read that talks about only a multichoice exam, they are old reviews. The unit has changed a lot in structure this year and there is now 4 WETLAB reports, where little instruction is provided and no feedback what so ever when you get them back. This unit caused a lot of undue stress on a lot of people. On top of that all the lecturers except one are completely impossible to understand, and no tutors or lecturers are willing to provide any help in understanding. Not to mention marking of assessments is extremely inconsistent between markers- you could get a 80 and a 40 on the same assessment if two different tutors marked it. Do not do this unit unless absolutely necessary!

I found that the lectures did not contain the required amount of information for the examination (perhaps 60%). However the quizzes and textbook were valuable in making up for this to a small degree. The quiz and examination questions were not basic questions and therefore tested my understanding at a more complex level which made this unit somewhat difficult for me. Two of the lecturers were very hard and at times impossible for me to understand (Gary and Jan), and from speaking to a few of my peers they felt the same way. I had to end up focusing on the lecture slides only without audio.

I really enjoyed this unit. The labs were quite interesting and the demonstrators were great. Don't expect every lab to be 3 hours - some were 20 minutes, some were 2 hours. The course isn't too concept heavy and the exam was 72 MCQs. Essentially the unit's designed so you can't really fail unless you try.

Good labs and lectures, however a lot of content - it's easy to fall behind.
