    I'm wondering how other people are actually recording the research for their projects. As you find the information are you copy and pasting it into a document, are you writing out the research onto paper, or are you doing something else?

    I want to see if I can find a better method to the one that I'm using at the moment to research for the EPQ.

    I want to study law and my question is along the lines of

    'To what extend do married Muslim woman have equal rights to their husband?'

    Is this okay and should i phrase it differently? I plan to do it on the AQA exam board btw

    I copy and paste, I usually have two word documents open, one for the actual research in a numerical list and another for the source also in a numerical list.

    Well it's obvious from the outset that Islamic laws which outline rights and responsibilities, differ between the two genders. And "equal" usually means the same on both sides.

    So I would rephrase it to something more relevant "To what extent does the married Muslim woman have fair rights compared to her husband?

    I'm about 1000 words into my extended project and I repeatedly use the phrase 'This is useful because' or 'This is helpful as'.

    To me that seems like a very clumsy phrase and I was wanting to know weather anyone could come up with a better one.

    Does anyone actually know what materials are used for marking for the AQA EPQ?

    I have my essay, my bibliography and my production log obviously, but I also have a workbook where I noted everything I did, my notes, a resource table, a project timeline, a personal annotated bibliography and a number of other documents that I created during the process of my project.

    Which materials should I prepare for my examiner to mark?

    Does anyone know if I could include visits to art galleries and museums in the "Personal" section? If not, could it be put into the "Work" section?

    Started doing mine on a type of craniotomy involving the resection of malignant tumours using EcoG. I will be applying for medicine, so I'm not too sure if it my research/ project should be laid out in a way that "non-specialist" examiners would comprehend as its more of an advanced science topic? (hope that made sense) So, can i go into as much detail as I like providing that it will be a science-based research project or am I supposed to limit it so that people with little background of science understand it in sync? I'm confused

    I am doing a presentation to would-be sixth formers at my school (:cool: ) and want some idea of the sheer variety of EPQ titles and themes - So just leave me the title of your EPQ here! TY

    Level 3 OCR are most hopeful, so I would be grateful if you could tell me your board and level

    They're all going to be quite specific and probably a bit random if you list titles, but mine is "To what extent is Nuclear Power the optimal long-term solution to the modern Energy Crisis?”

    I appreciate this but "random" is what I am going for - I want to show how much scope there is to do whatever interests you.

    Is the use of robotics to deliver aid to third world and wartorn countries a viable endeavour?

    that wasn't the exact title but it's pretty close iirc.

    Thanks, I'll just leave it at that in my presentation but I'll leave this thread open in case any really interesting titles crop up that I could use

    I'm a little bit worried mine sounds pathetic now :L "To what extent is Tudor food acceptable to a 21st Century palate?" or something of that ilk have not finished it yet...
