I know there's a few people who are pretty curious for what some of the subjects are like in the MD.

Could somebody review the third-year Biomed cores? I know that there's some already (from 2011) but I'm just wondering if much of the subject has changed

@Ballerina: Comparative Animal Physiology is probably more useful for physiology, and I've heard bad things about DASC subjects :/

Thank you!! Could you expand upon what you heard of DASC subjects? Who/why/which/etc?

I'm trying to find a balance between not overwhelming myself with difficult subjects so as to achieve a GPA that allows me into postgrad, and taking such easy subjects that I'm a useless researcher when I actually do postgrad...would taking 2 breadths in second year and 2 breadths in third year, in addition to either a DASC/PHIL subject in second year, be much of a disadvantage in terms of prior knowledge for third year? I'm taking all the prerequisites and at least one recommended class for all my third year subjects, I'm just wondering if it's best to have as many classes with overlapping and relevant content as possible.

Thank you!

I haven't heard much about Companion Animal Biology other than that it's objectively "bad" (the assessment looks very nice, though), but I do have it on good authority that Applied Animal Physiology is hands-down the worst subject in the world and that you shouldn't even think of touching it if you want to live (from 5 people or so, and friends with 2nd year friends have apparently heard the same thing). As for other non-Animals in Society DASC subjects, I've heard little, so I don't think I'm qualified to say anything about them. But if you want to do an animal physiology subject Comparative Animal Physiology is apparently a recommended subject for physiology majors (or at least a prereq option, so it must be useful). Otherwise I guess you could just stick to humans?

Remind me if I forget but I'll try to do them after exams finish, sometime this weekend.

For anyone that's done Intermediate Microeconomics, are the tutorials based around the lectures? Is there a blue sheet/pink sheet to do?

Lectures are definitely useful, ideally you should attend the lectures in person since there's no screen capture or proper recordings online (it's just a crappy mp3 download). Videos are always shown in the lectures, and sometimes there are questions about these videos in your tute prep or tutes themselves. Lecturers will also tell you what will and won't be on the exam. I've posted up a review of OB in the subject reviews thread if you want to have a look.

Thank you darls! ♥ I'm veering toward the nutrition subject.
