NEUR3001 – Molecular & Cellular Neuroscience 72.1

The practicals are incredibly disorganised, do the journal club instead.
The final exam is stupidly hard because there's not enough time to stop and think about it- it's not a test of your knowledge, but of how fast you can write. Both my hand and all of my friends' were really sore afterwards. I got a 6 because I was rushing to finish the final, whereas for the other two assessment pieces I got 7s.

That aside, this is a good, interesting course. Some of the lecturers need to slow down, and I think there should be no SAQs on the final from modules that were in the midsem, but overall did enjoy.

Did this in Semester 1 2019, but there's no option to select that.

Is the textbook necessary?

Not unless you\'re struggling with concepts.

  • Interesting
  • Mostly passionate lecturers
  • Option to not do disorganized practicals
  • Final exam is needlessly hard
  • If you talk so fast that people can't understand, chill
  • Exams at all
