Is it possible for me to talk to my lecturer and discuss why I would not like to be asked I questions during lectures because I suffer from quite bad anxiety when it comes to talk in font of a group of people and I would end up having a panic attack.

You can obviously speak to your lecturer about this.

Lots of people don't speak up in lectures - you are mostly expected just to listen. Plus you could just sit quietly at the back as most lecture rooms are large.

You are more expected to contribute to discussions in small seminar groups but according to my son, lots of people stay silent at those too. You will not be fored to answer questions but you will get more out of seminars if you fully engage with the topic. However, by all means have a word with the staff if the thought of directly being asked questions would give you anxiety.

No one talks in lectures. You just listen. There are no questions unless you raise your hand and ask one.
