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.

This is interesting. What do the OLE units involve?

Last year:
List as of now:
PSC1042: Multi-Disciplinary Pharmaceutical Science.
PSC2041: Biopharmaceutics
PSC1012: Physiology I
PSC1031: Physical Chemistry I
PSC2011: Biochemical pharmacology
PSC1041: Scientific Inquiry
PSC1032: Physical Chemistry II
PSC1012: Physiology II and PSC2031: Analytical Methods are tied
PSC1021: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry I
PSC1022: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry II
PSC2021: Structural Organic Chemistry

Organic is truly the devil and I just really hate this sem's unit, more than anything else in the world ^_^
(Note the trend- all three last ranked are organic :') )
Now:
Most favourite:
Literally every unit Monash offers bar PSC2232. (See below)
PSC2041: Biopharmaceutics (My opinion changed after a v nice exam aha)
PSC2142: Computational Chemistry (This unit makes me cry because of the labs, but it's also my first taste of stats/maths since PSC1041/year 12 and I just really enjoy this unit.) and PSC2222: Formulation Chemistry (It's tough, but I really love it. +1 for the Ruby couverture choc given to us by the UC because he's a chocaholic <3 ) (Tied)
PSC1042: Multi-Disciplinary Pharmaceutical Science
PSC1012: Physiology I
PSC1031: Physical Chemistry I
PSC2011: Biochemical pharmacology
PSC1041: Scientific Inquiry
PSC1032: Physical Chemistry II
PSC1012: Physiology II and PSC2031: Analytical Methods (tied)
PSC1021: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry I
PSC2012: Molecular Pharmacology (Mainly because I dislike the sole UC/lecturer- he's a bit of an ass, to put it nicely)
PSC1022: Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry II
PSC2021: Structural Organic Chemistry
Hell
Second Hell
Third Hell
Finally: PSC2232- Colloid Chemistry.
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. This unit had potential, but then I have no content whatsoever, the pracs are a shambles, and I have quizzes that are based on the content I don't even have. Therefore ???  (Not an organic unit, I promise aha :') )

MATH3871 Bayesian Inference and Computation (The stats in this course is just goals - it put MATH2901 to shame)
MATH3411 Information, Codes and Ciphers
MATH5505 Combinatorics (I still maintain that it was a mind fuck but it's still rather beautiful maths)
MATH3611 Higher Analysis (Made its way higher up because I see it get used in Bayesian, even if it's really barely used)
COMP1521 Computing Systems Fundamentals (There's a lot that I don't like about it still, but I've been REALLY pleasantly pleased with what I did like)
MATH2901 Higher Theory of Statistics
MATH1081 Discrete Mathematics
MATH2111 Higher Several Variable Calculus (I still maintain that the course was taught shit in my year but it's since improved and also the content has become far more relevant)
MATH2601 Higher Linear Algebra
MATH1151 Mathematics for AS&F 1A
MATH1251 Mathematics for AS&F 1B
COMP2521 Data Structures and Algorithms
ECON1101 Microeconomics 1 (I maintain that this was one of the best and easiest courses I've ever done but its relevance has dropped)
FINS1613 Business Finance
MATH2701 Abstract Algebra and Fundamental Analysis
MATH2621 Higher Complex Analysis (tbh very fun, but somewhat irrelevant to the stuff I'm currently doing)
MATH3701 Higher Topology and Differential Geometry (...it's really not taught well. It's just not in the shit category like MATH2111 used to be)
COMP1511 Introduction to Programming
ACCT1501 Accounting and Financial Management 1A
MATH2931 Higher Linear Models (I still suck at it and think it's very boring but it's gained some relevance)
ACTL1101 Introduction to Actuarial Studies
ACCT1511 Accounting and Financial Management 1B
ACTL2111 Financial Maths for Actuaries
SCIF1121 ...

Yeah, I was actually pretty happy with most of my courses this sem. Three made it pretty far up

(Edit: Sure lol)
