Hi, I'm studying Medical Sciences on the Direct Pathway to medicine. I absolutely love learning...


This unit is a big step up from IMED1002; there is not only a lot of memorisation but you also actually have to be able to apply the concepts learnt, which is sometimes quite tricky if you don’t fully understand the content. You really do need to study hard to do well in this unit but I found that some topics such as that on metabolic disorders was a tad easier to remember than other sections since you could actually relate it to your everyday life, making for a more engaging learning experience.

This is a tough unit that involves a lot of memorising of metabolic pathways, although Liz does her best to simplify things. If you want to do med later, you have to study these concepts at some point, so at least you're getting it over and done with early on, with sympathetic lecturers who understand you are only a first year. Expectations of what to learn are very specific, and based on what I've heard of similar units done elsewhere, (eg in med at other uni's), we really have it easy... easy for metabolism, but still very hard!

Very difficult unit. Interesting content but is very challenging. You need to work incredibly hard if you want to do well.

Very interesting, enjoyable unit. The unit was well organised and the lecturers are great. It is very challenging though. If you don't do any work all semester and cram before the final, don't expect to pass.
