B&W and colour film have different spectral response, and their film base is different (slightly purplish/white versus orange); so they'll give different results when printed or scanned as B&W. Even XP-2, which is a dedicated C41 process B&W film, won't give the same results as silver-gelatin. I tried that for a while, when 1 hour labs were still abundant and cheap, but found the results lacking in punch.

As an aside, I agree that the 'homework' remark was not appropriate..
Kind regards,
