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.
