    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...

    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).

    Your school is foolish if they believe that everyone doing an EPQ will greatly increase their chances of getting into Oxbridge. Oxbridge want people who get off their backside to do research themselves and it will be obvious if they ask 'what motivated you to do an EPQ?' that people did not choose it for themselves. Please tell your school this .
