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 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.
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?
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

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.

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...
well at my school the EPQ was mostly aimed at people who wanted to do a certain area of research, so we ended up with a couple of psychological and sociological studies as well which ended up at over 100 participants each iirc.
But now this year they're making everyone who's applying to Oxbridge do one so they will probably be much more varied and less hardcore (for lack of a better word).
