    No but I know it's going to be terrible.

    Can you get it remarked?
    I'm not sure. Why don't you ask them what they have given you? I'm sure it won't be that bad

    Do something with contemporary relevance if you ask me, like IDK if you want to do a inorganic chemistry project graphene or petrochemical stuff alternatively pharmaceuticals are pretty interesting, especially looking at drug trials, but then I am biased

    Pick something based on something else that you enjoy that also ties in to established legal issues like the determination of blame or just interesting cases.

    For example I'm also interested in law and I narrowed my choices down to the Hillsborough Disaster and the Tony Bland case, Michael Watson and Gerald McClellan, and the usage of steroids in sport.

    This combined an interest in law with an extra-curricular interest and I suggest that you do the same. You are cutting it a bit fine if you don't mind me saying so...

    You need longer than the school holidays and teaching time etc...talk to your school!

    It is fun but a lot of work - Pick something off the wall so your PS stands out!

    For instance, I am doing mine in Tudor Cookery!

    Best bet for history is to do something local or to do with social history, and not just a coursework type thing as you do that over summer/winter term for A2 anywho!

    If you have any questions pm me

    Just finished mine and got the marks back mine was based around the question who does medical law benefit the most, my advise is when doing law research find some local solicitors to give you some opinions and quotes.

    Woah everyone seems to have had teaching on it ! I did it last year and had like 2 hours teaching and was fine I guess! Spent a lot of summer researching. Mine was on the Physiology and Psychology of pain. Did a small research project with 20 participants and ice water.

    If anyone has any questions to help get started I'll do my best to answer

    How about 'Euthanasia: The perspective of Medical Professionals'?

    Covers all of those topics and is quite unique, will be tough though.
