    On what?

    Ohmygod. I'm really scared of my supervisor though. I made him slightly late for his lesson after break even though I saw him at the start of break time about EPQ Music and he got all funny with me..

    :yes:

    Just a bit of info here: apparently there was ~350 entries for the EPQ last year and 50 of them got A*s so that's quite promising.

    I'm happy with my EPQ progress. I had the pleasure of meeting the Dr. McCunnie (admissions tutor for the social sciences at Manchester Uni and Phd in economic history) this week and he's gave me some brilliant points and resources for my essay

    I've been procrastinating SO badly, but somehow I've managed to crank out ~1000 words already. Slightly behind schedule (wanted to do 1000 a week, and it's now been 2 weeks since I started), but I've still got ages so I'm not worried yet.

    My teacher sent me an email back a while ago, but after several days I've still had no reply to the most recent one I sent haha... It's sad that he's probably given up hope already lol. Nah, he's probably just a forgetful old sod.

    Anyway, let the procrastination continue.
