    hi all I'm would like to do a degree in psychology so I thought it may be better to do a psychology-based subject for EPQ. I would like to do forensic psychology because its on the spec but we aren't doing the topic.
    any thoughts on this? is it ok to do that? and what can I talk about regarding this topic?
    Thanks

    I'm in A2 and I'm about to sit this exam on Thursday with this topic. I find it very interesting so I think it would be a good EPQ to do, personally.

    The AQA course includes things like the genetic basis of criminality, methods of collecting crime data, criminal profiling, and the effects of prisonisation and institutionalisation as well as how to reduce crime rates/help to prevent reoffending.

    Any of those could be expanded if they take your fancy. If you need any further help, give me a shout and I can explain things a bit further. Say if you want to know more about the effects of institutionalisation, I'll talk you though some of the studies and statistics so you can get a better idea of the module.

    Good luck!
