    Has anyone done this? Is it doable?

    I would really like to see an example EPQ to see how you set the tone/structure if anyone knows a site where i can see them?

    I'm willing to work hard for this over the summer but want to know if it is an achievable goal before i start?

    Thanks!

    Anything is possible to do it, i did mine on emerging economy of india and china i compared the fact and figured and came to a conclusion of which economy would be leader by 2050? It is possible to do it and finish it in space of six weeks.

    However, motivation is very impo also u need to spend first two weeks researching into ur topic area to get into higher mark band, i am trying to look for the website which had all info and how to structure it.

    The more research u do the higher mark band u can get, i am assuming the board is AQA if so go to their web and look for extended project and the course spec, all the marking criteria is in there. Have a read and explore ur topic area broadly and narrow it down later.

    Make sure u knw ur topic area better. I got A on it close getting A*.

    Hope it helps

    Prob took me 4 hours each day for 3 weeks inc research and 1 whole day to put all together an check spelling & grammar.

    It has to hight quality and well presented to get high grade but its we worth it as easy UMS can be picked up.
