    Hi, do you think that doing an EPQ on the science behind zombies is a good idea or isit too risky? Do you have any other recommendations for an EPQ topic for someone interested in doing medicine?

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot!

    Well quite a few of us in our class, including me had the same problem- other work just seemed to get in the way of EPQ a bit, especially since our school did not have timetabled lessons and my supervise literally lost interest in me after the first meeting! I just did a few hours when I could; it is reccommended that you spend 3 hours per week on the project, but that is unrealistic and rarely happens. I'd say I probably spend a few solid days on it and just edited it in frees and on the weekends. But the EPQ as you'll have realised is not an easy ride and so it does require a significant amount of time.

    In terms of general advice, one thing I would definitely say is do not ignore the Production Record/Log! This is worth more than the essay itself, make it very detailed, make it very clear and just generally write it as if your examiner does not have a clue how you formulated your essay. Gloss yourself up, but also make sure you reognise and write about your weaknesses; they like you to show how you overcame challenges, they don't expect that a 5,000 word essay should have been an easy ride for a 16-18 year old. The second thing I'd say is definitely use notes. Do not do what I did and sit there, writing up your project with 10-15 books on the table- condense the quotes and important parts into notes. Also make sure to evaluate sources, I did mine in the footnotes with some reference to validity in the main body. Again, go into a lot of detail with source analysis. A related point is to use many sources- if you think you don't have enough sources, just find the smallest point in another source and reference it.

    If you have any more questions please ask.

    Hey mate,

    I'm doing my EPQ on Pakistan's Economic Outlook and Challenges it Faces; kind of close to finishing like my first full draft, but I am on 7300 words and my teacher said not to go over 7500 words at the max - about the reflection of sources and their validity, do you have to do that within the essay? or can you do it separately? I have A LOT of sources, and is everything in the footnotes taking into account for the word count?

    Thanks

    Well first of all tell me off your ahead what really sparks your interest, and remember it doesn't have to be school related. Choose something you're willing to spend time on abs want to genuinely learn more about

    Big and dietary fat jk; and you mean how I structure it?

    Firstly I made an essay plan of course, put all the bullet points, and to some extent this was for the sake of writing one because it helps me remember the thing when I write it down + I looked at it like a couple of times when I forgot what to write but main reason was first lol.

    Anyways, for my actual essay, before I just kind of started writing randomly I guess - showed it to my economics teacher and was told i should make it flow better; so I added sub headings to each point I was making e.g. mine was on Pakistan's economy so there were different sub headings about positive economic indicators, "what does the data mean?", etc, if you get what I'm saying! Also, made sure to link each of the points i was talking about, and had a "conclusion" for each point like I said the implication for each of the arguments I was making so if I talked about something bad in the economy, I would say what it meant, and then tried to link it to the next point I was going to make.

    Make sure to include a contents page, with page references + a sentence summary of each sub heading you're going to make.

    If you want you can have a look at mine?? Can PM it to you or something
