I do biochem (but do more chem modules) - it's 50:50 in terms of practical/theoretical knowledge - but independent study wise, we write up lab reports/essays, do some worksheets and past papers - not too much of difference from school

Organic chem has A LOT of stuff to learn/remember

(I don't do any physical chem modules) so maybe different

+1 to this.
You have marked labs ( anywhere from 9-15 hours a week; mostly chem with a few BIO here and there ) + a good amount of lectures + workshop. You also have to produce weekly 10-14 hour reports; in 3.5 days; and you have more exams than most people/courses . Theres a lot of self learning needed, and organic chem gets very convoluted and inorganic chem become filled with a ton of info/calcs/skills and content; making organic chem sometimes easier to undertsand, since its just mechanism and small content ( does need a lot of backround knowledge though )
