    I'm thinking of doing an epq topic based on some sort of current affairs issue (doesn't have to be that current) my ideas so far are the Arab spring or Israeli-Palestine conflict, any ideas for questions for those topics or any new topics altogether? The controversial is welcomed and thank you in advance

    ergh hard to suggest ideas for something that you could actually to make within a reasonable time period and test. Hmmmmmm but I can suggest ideas from fluid mechanics or perhaps thermodynamics in the context of engines?

    hey guys my epq question is ...

    Is it morally acceptable that footballers get paid such high wages, should there be some sort of cap ? Where else can it be better spent ?

    or something along those lines.

    Can anybody help me with ideas and how to start off ?

    Hi, I am doing my EPQ and have set myself a deadline of the end of month for finishing it. But I am struggling for ideas. I wanted to How have Intel Processors changed over time. But have been told my teacher I can not because I can not argue a point. So I am a bit stuck

    . Don't know how possible that is with the constraints that you have. But research it some more - you never know.

    What have y'all put in your UCAS forms as the title? My title was short enough to be put in but I know that some of you have really long titles.

    I was told it was best to just write the subject. E.g. English or Maths or in my case, Spanish Literature. The title could be something for the PS.

    I'm guessing this is the presentation you do near the end?

    I did it last year and it basically is what you did your presentation, so a sample of different slides are as follows (you'll add more detail):

    Title of your project.

    WHY you chose it (what interested you and gave you the drive to do it)

    What you found out (but simply,give some examples of the sources you used and say HOW these helped you with your project and if they were reliable)

    Tell them the conclusion of your project and briefly how you got to it.

    Say what you learnt through doing this project/ the skills you developed and also how your attitude may have changed.

    If you were to do it again, what would you do differently?

    I was just wondering can I do photography as an EPQ? Seeing as it's a written essay mixed with a presentation would it work?

    I am doing my EPQ on Pierre Bezukhov from War and Peace (Just volume one) My questions is something along the lines of "How does Tolstoy present Pierre Bezukhov" (Needs refining, I know.)

    My teacher for EPQ is a science teacher, so not much help! How do I structure this? I was thinking of going for the old - Point Evidence Analyse Expand, but I'm worried it's a bit GCSE like, I'm in AS but it has to be written in an A2 standard to gain the high marks. (How do you do the 'PEE' in A2?)

    I'm really stressing because nobody else is doing an English extended essay but me..! I just wondered, even if you aren't doing EPQ, if you could help.

    Thanks,
    Hayley - Holmes Chapel Academy.

    I'm a scientists and I just finished my epq. I am terrible at essay writing but apparently I wrote it well so I firstly wrote down all the points I needed to make, with an intro first and conclusion at the end and then separated each point out and allocated a number of words roughly to each one. Seemed to work out ok, I'm predicted an A
