    Yup as I literally just completed it all but due to some rough times I had about 2 weeks to do it, so not as good as I had hoped http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgXaM...EkPD5ncu6cgfk- but I hope I will get more marks for the DVD case and such. I know someone who made a magazine and another guy that did a horrror exhibition and did a HUGE portfolio on research and such, the artifact really can be any size, it just depends how well it's done, mine seemed a lot smaller compared to his!
    What was yours on?
    Oooo eerie, I really like the voice over- did you write it? Quite a lovely chanting rhythm to it.
    Thank you for the examples, did you enjoy it? was it more fun than stressful?
    Our EPQ class have only just started research and such. So I'll have to wait a year and hope I am successful however mine may develop.

    Yup, I wrote the poem myself-using themes influenced slightly from others, but no words taken from them. Thank you for your lovely comment

    I really enjoyed it-the actual project making and looking at what sources I can use to help was really fun-as you pick the EPQ on something you enjoy-which I personally felt was easier to do a project rather than a written report. To really make sure you have more fun than stress is time management-don't leave it until the last minute as you're not doing it for fun-you're doing it to meet deadlines.

    Good luck with your EPQ, can't wait to hear more about it as it progresses!

    Hi everyone, I'm in the process of finishing my EPQ now and I've realised I've gone over the 5000 words by about 300 words or so. Does anyone know if I'll get penalised for this?

    Yeah, the guy above me is right, it doesn't matter as long as it's not waffle. I'm doing mine on philosophical perspectives in popular culture. Just finishing my section on Lost. I planned to do aorund 800 words on each section and it's already 2384

    You're really far ahead compared to the people at my school!

    I still have to write my conclusion and abstract too, I expect mine to be closer to 6000 words when I'm finished.

    Really? At my school everyone's pretty much finished and a lot have already done their presentations. I've got mine in a couple of weeks and starting to get pretty nervous about it Good luck with your EPQ

    Nope there's a 10% tolerance so 5500 is okay

    What you did (Title)
    Why you chose it/subjects related to
    An overview of the research you did and putting concisely what you learnt-USE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE, and explain it. For example, I did film, I used the term ECU, which I then explained in its context.
    A conclusion (if there is one)
    What you would do differently/success? Failure? What you learnt.
    Time for questions, which you should answer in depth, using knowledge learned.

    If you type in EPQ presentation into google, there should be a pdf file that might be of more use than me..did mine today and did one last year

    One thing I would suggest is in your presentation make a slide describing aventues of research you did NOT peruse... or areas you decided not to include in the project and why?

    This gets you lots of evaluation points
