    From how you described it, you want to ensure that if users select Grade 12, they should only select Session 1, correct?

    If so, what you can do is add a Text Field that will show them a warning/error that they need to pick Session 1 if they selected Grade 12. Here's how this would be setup:

    1. Add a Text Field to your form that will show your warning/error message.

    e.g. You should select Session 1 if you select Grade 12

    2. Add a Condition similar to the one below:

    IF Grade IS EQUAL to Grade 12 AND Session IS NOT EQUAL TO Session 1

    THEN SHOW the Text Field error AND HIDE the Submit button
