    Hi everyone, I'm in the process of finishing my EPQ now and I've realised I've gone over the 5000 words by about 300 words or so. Does anyone know if I'll get penalised for this?
    As long as it is relevant it dosent matter at all. I wrote about 11000 words :/ and still got an A*. Good Luckkk

    Yeah, the guy above me is right, it doesn't matter as long as it's not waffle. I'm doing mine on philosophical perspectives in popular culture. Just finishing my section on Lost. I planned to do aorund 800 words on each section and it's already 2384

    You're really far ahead compared to the people at my school!

    I still have to write my conclusion and abstract too, I expect mine to be closer to 6000 words when I'm finished.

    Really? At my school everyone's pretty much finished and a lot have already done their presentations. I've got mine in a couple of weeks and starting to get pretty nervous about it Good luck with your EPQ

    Nope there's a 10% tolerance so 5500 is okay

    What you did (Title)
    Why you chose it/subjects related to
    An overview of the research you did and putting concisely what you learnt-USE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE, and explain it. For example, I did film, I used the term ECU, which I then explained in its context.
    A conclusion (if there is one)
    What you would do differently/success? Failure? What you learnt.
    Time for questions, which you should answer in depth, using knowledge learned.

    If you type in EPQ presentation into google, there should be a pdf file that might be of more use than me..did mine today and did one last year

    One thing I would suggest is in your presentation make a slide describing aventues of research you did NOT peruse... or areas you decided not to include in the project and why?

    This gets you lots of evaluation points

    Hi, I'm interested in doing an EPQ in economics but I'm struggling to come up with a topic. I'd like to do it on something from micro, rather than a more obvious macro subject like 'the recession'.
