Hi, is anyone else doing Forensic Psychology for one of their options? I find it interesting but also ridiculously hard - the way my teacher constructs her notes is impossible to understand, and the textbook isn't much help either...does anyone have any notes that they would be willing to share? or good websites to use for the new spec?

Haha no worries! I can't really help you, I just wanted to ask a couple of questions because I'm interested in forensic psychology if that's ok.

1. Does the teacher pick the options?

2. What kinds of things do you learn within the unit?

Thanks!

Are there any specific parts of the topic you struggle most with? I'm happy to share what I've got however sending the whole topic would take me a while.

Thank you so much! Could you possibly send any notes for either the top down/bottom up approachs and also the “differential Association theory” (I think that’s what it’s called)

Hello, I'm at University now studying Neuroscience however I achieved a grade A in AQA Psychology last year (New Spec too). I also did Forensic Psychology as a topic for the final paper. I revised for this whole paper 5 hours before the exam (No exaggeration). If you need any help drop me a message!

I found these both to be quite difficult also because for me the book wasnt super helpful. I used this website https://www.simplypsychology.org/a-l...orensic.html#2 to make my notes for these 2 topics just because I found that it broke it down into much more simple terms. Hopefully this helps you a bit.
