    In Psychology, we're doing Spec B and we get to choose any of the 5 applied options of which we take 2. My teachers have been teaching Cognition+Law and Forensics. One of my teachers is awful and we haven't learnt anything.

    So I'm hoping to take different topics in the exam (Schizophrenia+Mood Disorders and Stress+Stress Management). Will my college be able to find out if I doanswer different questions and if I spoke to them about this, would they let me answer whatever I want?

    Thanks!

    I don't think your college will know what questions you answer in the exam or have any control over what you actually choose to answer on the day. Also, if you do really well they will not suspect anything, although if something goes wrong they may question you about whether you answered the 'right topics'. But in answer to your question, I don't think they get told what questions you answer. Good Luck .

    Are you sure you want to take schizophrenia and mood disorders? I'm doing that topic, and trust me, there is a LOT more to it than forensics (which I'm also doing). Wouldn't it just be easier to go over forensics in your own time rather than taking on a whole new topic?

    Oh ok! Thanks!

    I was getting worried because I don't know much about what we are studying in class!

    I've gone over Forensics but because I don't like the topic, it goes through one ear and right out the other. I find schizophrenia and mood disorders more interesting anyway! I wouldn't call it taking on a new topic because I've already read a lot about atypical psychology from my out of lessons reading.

    Anyway, forensics is soooo boring!
