Overall Comment:

If you’ve done the prerequisite course BIOM2011, this one is easier and more interesting. The pracs are very similar in structure in that the class designs and implements their own experimental method. It is best to get a start on it early and learn from your mistakes in 2011 as they mark it the same way. The final exam was a bit more unpredictable than the 2011 final, but is still quite manageable if you attend lectures. Overall, not a bad course, and quite important for the Biomedical Science degree major.
