Reviews

This unit was probably my hardest unit, and my lowest scoring (at 73%). I felt that all the labs were really irrelevant and didn't really help with the lecture content. There was an in-class quiz after every lab with really low class averages, if you do the pre-reading and go through the pre-lab material you should be okay. There were 4 reports, the first 3 weren't assessed but they gave useful feedback, and the people who didn't do them generally scored quite low on the final report worth 20% of the final grade. I found the exam really tough because a lot of it was so specific, but if you keep up with the content from week 1 and do the practice exam provided then it wasn't too bad. The unit coordinator was really unorganized and often power point slides or pre-lab information came out too closet to the lab date, but there will be a different unit coordinator next year. I do recommend getting the textbook because there's a lot more detail you need than what is provided in the lectures. Overall it's a good unit though.

This unit requires a lot more time spent on it than you would think. You need to be up to date with the textbook readings in order to score well in the quizzes, while the lectures were only needed for the final exam. The content itself was easy enough to learn. Labs were a little pressed, time wise, but interesting enough. For the final exam - you need to look at both lectures AND textbook readings/chapters.

The lab reports were strictly marked (average of 5-6/10) with little to no feedback from tutors. Most of us only noticed our mistakes in our lab reports after being marked down for 3 reports. In addition, marking was inconsistent with some markers being way too strict on minor mistakes. Furthermore, the content in lecture were not enough for the MCQ exams with questions testing concepts untouched in lectures. Do not take this unit if it’s not a core unit for your major.

I didn't watch any lectures as I decided to focus on the quizzes and textbook. This didn't negatively alter my results. The unit is very content heavy and difficult if you don't have a background or interest in biology. However, if you put effort into the 4 lab reports (40%) and pre-lab quizzes (10%), and complete the weekly quizzes (10%) then you can wing the multi-choice exam. The frequent lab reports had little guidance and feedback, so some may find them challenging. Overall, I didn't enjoy the unit because I have no interest in biology. However, I didn't have to wear myself out by memorising all of the content for the exam due to my excellent lab report/quiz results. Therefore, it was an easy pass.

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.
