    I'm a first year forensic psychology student and at the moment I'm pretty confused with the reading. Only one of my modules is related to forensics, so I'm hoping you can help with the others. One module is foundation of psychology which is at the moment social and cognitive. How do I know how much reading I should be doing each week? I've got textbooks I've bought and got from the library, but there's so much especially about other research. I'm finding it overwhelming. Do I need to read about all of the studies? How do I know what's important and what isn't?
    I'd say it depends on what the assessment is for that module. But on the whole, you only really need to read up on what is covered in the lectures, and gain more depth/detail on that topic - don't just start reading a whole new theory/area because chances are you won't get assessed on it.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
