F stop settings not responding

This is how I found out, I been taking a photography class, one of the assigments is to shoot 2 subjects as follow:
changing f stop and shutter speed

5 frames of each
#1 frame with correct meter reading and the other 4 frame only changing f stop, one and two stops over and one and two under.

The same way with shutter speed
#1 frame with correct meter reading and the other 4 frame only changing the shutter speed, one and two stops over and one and two under.

I shoot 2 rolls and made contact sheets to see the diferent dark from the
F stops and shutter speeds. I noticed the frames with different f stop stayed the same, nothing was different while the other frames that I change the shutter speed was succcesfull.
I had no idea was the problem, Please advice
Thanks

It could be that the camera's aperture stop-down magnets have failed, causing the camera to shoot everything fully stopped-down (e.g. all shots at F22 or F16). There doesn't appear to be a cure for this (at least not one that makes financial sense). Change the shutter speed over a range, then look into the lens - does it stop down fully every time? Try changing the f-stop - does it still stop down fully every time (the iris goes very small - same size on every shot)?
If yes, it's the magnets. If you've invested a lot in lenses, try a Sony digital SLR - your lenses will work with that, or pick up another Minolta film body - perhaps something substantially newer, where the aperture magnets haven't had a chance to fail.
