    I understand that AQA use Turnitin for doing the plaigirism check on moderated extended project scripts. My question is that because i have used quotes in my project, will the scanner show it as plaigirism and does a person check anything turnitin shows up afterwards against my list of sources as i have listed the source of the quotes in my bibliography so it isnt really plaigirism?
    You should use footnotes to indicate where the quotes came from. It's perfectly fine to use quotes as long as you put the proper credit.

    Hey guys, I have to write an essay or produce an artifact for my extended project. I want to base it on forensic science.

    Any ideas??:confused:

    Perhaps 5000 words on 'the development of forensic science in regard to the Police and the Law' or something like that?

    I would definitely suggest talking to your tutor about it, they will be able to help you pick a title that is broad enough for the essay but focused enough to avoid being overwhelmed with information. I assume you would do an essay rather than an artifact if you're doing forensics, but again, speak to your tutor about it.

    Good luck

    How about something like how forensics are used in law to aid convictions, or the extend of reliability of a certain forensic technique such as fingerprints, or toolmark impressions/blood splatter or of the like?

    thanks for the suggestions

    I will talk to my tutor again but at least now i have some ideas! the development of forensic science could be good if i focus on a specific area. And the idea of reliabilty could come into that? good job guys!

    Take it from me, regardless you will have to focus on a specific area; I'm spending the most part of 3 years learning forensics. You only have a few thousand words to discuss an argument.

    If you need any help, don't be afraid to ask. Best of luck!

    If you want me to be honest, I'm enjoying some aspects, but the things like crime scene investigation etc I really hate! I only really did this course for the chemistry from an unusual angle. However some of it is very interesting.

    hhmmm, yeah I guess some parts could be better than others but then i think i'm doing the chemistry for the forensics instead of the forensics for the chemistry lol
    thanks for all the help

    I am currently studying A levels in maths,chemistry, physics and biology and would like to study pharmacologyy or immunolgy at university. I was thinking of doin the extended project on "The effect of global warming on disease" but wasn't sure if this was too broad and if so what experiment could I do relevant to this?
    Thanks for any help

    It is slightly to broad, what specific diseases?
    For you project you could try and contact processors in the relevant field at your local university. Try searching on the internet if there is currently reserach going on as we speak trying to find out if there is a link. Whatever you chose make sure you can write 1000/5000 word essay on the topic

    Well I want to study Natural sciences myself, in particular chemsitry, but I'm hoping mine should be a talking point for an interview

    "To what extent is CCS (Carbon capture and sequestration) a feasible and effective method of carbon abatement in China relative to Hydroelectric power, whilst still meeting China's growing energy demands."

    A poster itself might not be enough to get high marks-perhaps create a portfolio, where in it you have brainstorm ideas-draw different ideas. Create pages that have pictures you could use, then pages on fonts and label what effect this has. the 1000 words is the research you did and why you chose the fonts/pictures etc. you did. It's like the 5000 word essay, just condensed-you still need referencing.
