^What was wrong with Literacy Across the Years? Seems like the sort of unit I'd enjoy. 😂

I'll take a shot **procrastinating**. Never really stepped back and looked at the units I've liked, surprisingly.


PHS2350 - Introductory Physics Research Project - This unit has definitely been the best I've taken so far. It was hard and you sink a lot of time into it, but it was fun and worth it.
MTH3020 - Complex Analysis - Probably the most fun and interesting kind of math I've come across so far
MTH3060 - Advanced Ordinary Differential Equations
PHS2061 - Quantum and Thermal Physics
MTH1030 - Techniques for Modelling - cos burkard
MTH2030 - Differential Equations with Modelling
PHS2062 - Electromagnetism and Optics - you finally start skimming the surface of some really cool physics, and you actually use some real math.
PHS2081 - Atomic, Nuclear and Condensed Matter Physics
ASP2011 - Astronomy
MTH2121 - Algebra and Number Theory
MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus - Really dry but easy
MTH2021 - Linear Algebra with Applications - Really dry but hard
PHS1022 - Fields and Quantum Physics
PHS1011 - Classical Physics and Relativity - first year physics is trash
FIT1045 - Introduction to Algorithms and Programming
SCI2015 - Scientific practice and communication (advanced)  ........

Turns out that so far I have enjoyed the math I've done more than the physics.

1. BMS1062 - Molecular Biology: Content is relatively boring but the unit is extremely well run with great staff.
2. BMS1011 - Biomedical Chemistry: Content is light so can be boring but again a well run unit.
3.BMS1052 - Human Neurobiology: Unit with the most potential in terms of content but the overload of content meant you couldn't really "enjoy" it.
4. BMS1021 - Cells, Tissues and Organisms: Nice unit if you did VCE biology a lot of topics but heaps of connections..
5. CHM1011 - Chemistry I: Well run unit and very light.
6. MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus: Didn't go/watch to lectures (heard they were horrible) but tutorials/my tutor were great.
7. BMS1042 - Public Health and Preventitive Medicine: Two parts epidemiology and statistics. Epi was pretty interesting and towards the end of the semester I really enjoyed it but statistics was pretty useless.
8. MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling: Relatively low on my list since I didn't go/watch to lectures (burkard probably would've increased my enjoyment)
9. CHM1022 - Chemistry II: Can't say much since I did this in the 2nd half of year 12 and kinda bludged it.
10. BMS1031 - Medical Biophysics: Very disjointed unit and badly run praticals.

A few things haha!
1 I hate drawing (and remembering) reactions and their mechanisms (which is usually asked in each assessment and I usually end up mucking it up anyways)
2. I've heard things about this current unit's exam and it just adds more pressure than needed when it comes to studying :D

im assuming units are subjects? someone please correct me if im wrong

First semester at film school but these are my most favourite subjects to my least:

SCRN1027: Story 1
Seminars/Screen Studies
SCRN1029: Visual Storytelling
SCRN1028: Image 1 (Cinematography)
SCRN1026: Screen Business 1
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

Because USyd changed their curriculums this year, all Bachelor of Arts, Science and Commerce students have to take 12 units of OLE (open learning environment) units during the course. There are 0cp, 2cp and 6cp units, and I chose to take 3 2cp units this semester instead of a 2nd elective.
