Reviews

Overall, this unit is okay. The content can get VERY dry and tedious at times (especially the Linkage/Gene Mapping lectures), and feels a little irrelevant. The calculations aren't actually too too bad once you get your head around them and do a few practice questions (this is coming from someone who's not very strong at maths). The marking turnaround time is great. Easy to get a D but decent effort required for a HD

A good med science unit where the content is pretty easy. If u trash at math, prepare to get cooked in the calculations test(unless you grind real hard for it), which could hurt your grade a lot. The unit in 2018 is very different from the unit in 2017 (Rob did not teach us anything, minimal biochem/signalling). Content is easy, but pretty much clinically irrelevant and useless. Knowing about the genetic patterns in queen bees is the epitome of clinical irrelevance. The pathology/cancer lectures at the ending were this units' saving grace content-wise.

A challenging unit but fairly doable. The practicals & calculations test will bring you down heavy if not prepared. Majority is irrelevant content in terms of future clinical practice, but that's most units anyway.

If you do badly on the calcs test, it will pull your grade down significantly. Content wasn't all that interesting, and it seemed random and irrelevant at times

Well organised unit and lecturers were quite helpful. Biochem was probably the hardest topic as we had limited time to prepare for the test. Other topics were very easy and the exam was extremely easy.

lecturer Rob White ftw, honestly the best part of this unit and made the muscle physio a bit more bearable. although physio concepts really need to be understood in depth to answer the exam/tests, but Rob is always happy to explain further if you don't get it. anatomy was easy rote learning. genetics was a bit boring and a harder rote learning topic. biochem had so many pathways and cell signaling to memorize too, but be sure to understand the pathways well (what happens if one step is blocked etc). a good challenging unit that isn't overwhelmingly hard but reasonable difficulty for a level 2. disclosure: i heard that the unit content may be slightly different for 2018 so what i say here might be irrelevant.
