I'm assuming you're sitting the same as me, so as I know it:

Social Psychology- Obedience to Authority, Conformity etc.

Individual Differences - Abnormality - Psychodynamic, Behavioural, Cognitive and Biological Approaches. As well as treatment.

Biological Psychology - Stress, the immune system and the Sympathetic Nervous System.

Best of Luck!

It depends whether you're doing the A or B specification, and what exam board, can't you ask your teacher?

I did individual differences - abnormality, and social psychology :) 

But abnormality is a big subject includes definitions, biological explanation, cognitive, psycho dynamic.. I think that's it! :) x

It depends on your exam board. 

For OCR is it exam B542? 

If so then here are the topics:

Biological Psychology - Criminal Behaviour [CT= Biological Theroy, AT= Social Learning Theory, CS= Mednick et al (1984)]

Cognitive Psychology - Perception [CT= Constructivist Theory of Perception, AT= Nativist Theory, CS= Haber and Levin (2001)]

Developmental Psychology - Cognitive Development [CT= Piaget's Theory, AT= Vygotsky, CS= Piaget and Conservation of Number (1952)]

Social Psychology - Non-Verbal Communication [CT= Social Learning Theory, AT= Evolution Theory, CS= Yuki et al. (2007)

Individual Differences - The Self [CT= Humanistic Theory of Self, AT= Trait Theory, CS= Van Houtte and Jarvis (1995)

CT= Core Theory

AT= Alternative Theory

CS= Core Study
