Ordering the units I've done wasn't particularly easy; as I must admit I haven't really had strong feelings about the majority of them. However, with the way I'm feeling today, the order might look something like this:

MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling  (teaching was super engaging for this unit, thanks Burkard)
FIT1045 - Introduction to algorithms and python
MTH2010 - Multivariable calculus
FIT1008 - Intro to computer science
CHM1051 - Chemistry I (first year chemistry units have been a bit dry tbh)
CHM1052 - Chemistry II
SCI2015 - Scientific practice and communication (writing a 3000 word literature review will be the end of me I fear)


***daylight***



PHS1011 - Classical physics and relativity (this unit was run so poorly that I couldn't stomach doing another physics unit this semester)

2016: Biology | Further
2017: Chemistry | English | Methods | Physics | Specialist
2018 - 2021: BSc Advanced - Research [Computational Science and Mathematics] @ Monash

Thought it be appropriate to list down ALL my first year units into one list now that I'm done with uni for the year!

* SCRN1027: Story 1 (Screenwriting) (love love love love my tutor for Story! The best tutor I've had at uni so far. The tasks are very engaging and challenging as well)
* SCRN1030: Character & Performance 1 (Directing) (I didn't like directing at first but my tutor for this subject was super engaging as well and was so nice. She drew me towards directing because she approached it from an actor's perspective which was interesting)
* SCRN1033: Short Form Production (I have learnt so much in this subject more than all my subjects combined honestly. The stress was worth it!)
* SCRN1028: Image 1 (Cinematography)
* SCRN1031: Rhythm & Juxtaposition 1 (Editing) (lowkey expected more in this subject honestly)
* SCRN1029: Visual Storytelling
* SCRN1026: Screen Business 1 (Producing)
* Screen Studies
* Seminars
* SCRN1032: Sound 1 (Sound) (I just couldn't engage with the subject at all because it got too technical with frequency waves and whatnot)

Monash University

1. BMS2031 - Body Systems
2. BMS2011 - Structure of the Human Body
3. BMS2042 - Human Genetics
4. BMS1062 - Molecular Biology
5. BMS1011 - Biomedical Chemistry
6. BMS1052 - Human Neurobiology
7. BMS1021 - Cells, Tissues and Organisms
8. CHM1011 - Chemistry I
9. MTH2010 - Multivariable Calculus
10. BMS2021 - Human Molecular Cell Biology
11. BMS2052 - Microbes in health and disease
12. BMS1042 - Public Health and Preventitive Medicine
13. MTH1030 - Techniques for modelling
14. CHM1022 - Chemistry II
15. BMS1031 - Medical Biophysics
16. BMS2062 - Introduction to bioinformatics

I probably should add that i've liked all my subjects so even the stuff towards the bottom have been good. As for the new additions, BMS2042 is one of the best untis i've done - really well run and lectures are really interesting. BMS2052 - I went in not really liking or being interested in microbiology from what I had done in first year but this subject changed my perspective and it became very valuable for me. BMS2062 is ranked last but will still a decent unit apart from the assessment having really bad weightings. For 10 out of the 12 weeks we needed to submit "practical reports" which was really just answering questions but they take a lot of time to do (especially if you are trying to perfect them) and only worth 1.8% each. Also those pracs where 3 hours for work we could've just done at home  :o. Just a lot of minor assessments which was pretty annoying.

Subjects in bold are ones I'm doing this semester!

ARTS1510: Introductory German A
ARTS1511: Introductory German B
MDIA1003: PR & Advertising Foundations
ARTS1091: Media, Society, Politics
INST1006: The World in Transition
INST1005: Key Debates in International Studies
MDIA1002: Media and Communication Contexts
ARTS1090: Media, Culture & Everyday Life

This semester is a heck ton better than last semester. I'm a lot more interested in the subjects I'm doing now :-)

As Week 7 of Term 1 has started itís time to update! The ones in bold are the ones Iím doing this term:

ARTS2510: Intermediate German A
ARTS1510: Introductory German A
ARTS1511: Introductory German B
MDIA1003: PR & Advertising Foundations
ARTS1091: Media, Society, Politics
INST1006: The World in Transition
MDIA2005: Advertising
INST1005: Key Debates in International Studies
MDIA1002: Media and Communication Contexts
ARTS1090: Media, Culture & Everyday Life
INST2003: Research Methods in International Studies

This term has been a mad let down from the get go 😅 I donít really have an interest in advertising or research and am doing those courses because theyíre compulsory. Praying my WAM isnít too bad this term because I have to apply for exchange in Term 3 but things are not looking good lol. Hopefully itíll be better next term!
HSC 2017: English (Standard) // Mathematics // Modern History // Legal Studies // Business Studies
2018-2022: B International Studies/B Media (PR & Advertising) @ UNSW

Good luck for trials! ❤️

PSYC20007 - Cognitive Psychology
PSYC20009 - Personality and Social Psychology
MAST30013 - Techniques in Operations Research

Wouldn't be surprised if things move around a bit by the end of semester. Graph Theory is quite low as I've gotten a little behind and am not a big fan of the lecturer although I do like the concepts.

Cognitive Psych sounds cool. What type of stuff are you looking at?
Forgot to respond to this but the main overarching concepts we looked at where attention, memory and language I should probably write some reviews
2015-16: VCE
2017-: BSci UoM - Maths & Psych

This is a great idea, although it is difficult to do. Should be interesting for my own personal refection to update in the future though, especially if I decide to go through with doing a pretty different degree (Engineering) afterwards:

UniMelb BCom (Actuarial studies major for the first two years, now an economics major) + Physics 1 through CAP (Current subjects in bold):

COMP20005 - Engineering Computation (Got me super engaged, could literally sit there working on the assignments for hours + I learnt a very transferable and useful skill)
MAST10009 - Accelerated Mathematics 2 (Very rewarding experience)
ENGR10003 - Engineering Systems Design 2
PHYC10003 - Physics 1 (Not the most organised subject I've done, but enjoying it so far)
ECON20002 - Intermediate Microeconomics
ACTL10001 - Introduction to Actuarial Studies
FNCE10002 - Principles of Finance
ECOM30001 - Basic Econometrics
ACCT10002 - Introductory Financial Accounting
MAST10008 - Accelerated Mathematics 1
MAST20005 - Statistics
ECON20001 - Intermediate Macroeconomics
ECON30001 - International Trade Policy
ACCT10001 - Accounting Reports and Analysis
ECON10003 - Introductory Macroeconomics
ACTL20001 - Financial Mathematics I
ECON30005 - Money and Banking (Have had quite a few moments of regret about picking this over Maths Econ/ECON30020, too late now though....)
MGMT20001 - Organisational Behaviour (It wasn't that bad, I just liked most my other subjects more)
MAST20004 - Probability (Was an OK experience apart from the ridiculous exam)
ECON10004 - Introductory Microeconomics (Still salty over the exam, but looking back content seemed pretty dry too)
ACTL20002 - Financial Mathematics II (I completely lost interest, doubt I would have actually passed if it wasn't for the easier than usual final exam)

MATH2601 Higher Linear Algebra
MATH1151 Mathematics for AS&F 1A
MATH1251 Mathematics for AS&F 1B
COMP2521 Data Structures and Algorithms

MATH2621 Higher Complex Analysis (fun but still irrelevant to the stuff I'm currently doing)
COMP1511 Introduction to Programming
ACCT1501 Accounting and Financial Management 1A
MATH3701 Higher Topology and Differential Geometry (I thought I liked it but nope. But the lecturer was friendly.)
MATH2931 Higher Linear Models
