    Hey, I'm thinking about doing mine around the area of the Labour Party - perhaps about why it was formed or maybe about the creation of the welfare state but I'm not really sure what my title should be. Any ideas?

    To what extent has the welfare state been eroded since it's creation in 1945?


    ..could work out well, especially with all the reforms surrounding the NHS recently

    What a relief to have finally finished. I hope now that I get a decent grade because I put so much work into it.

    I finally handed in my report last week. I have well over the 5000 words, closer to 20000...I know I will probably lose marks for this, how much?

    Also, any advice on the presentation? Mines coming up quicky, and I've got no clue what to include - anyone who's done theirs and who would be willing to send me it would be amazing!

    I feel like my EPQ "lessons" are a complete waste of time. None of us know what we're going to do, and so far all we've done is a gantt chart on producing 200 leaflets (???) and a brainstorm of how to present the topic of "Why do young people take drugs?" I'd much rather be talking about getting our questions for our projects.

    So, I've noticed a lot of peolpe are doing the EPQ, I was just wondering do you get offered to it if you're smart enough? Do you ask to do it? what grades do you need to do it? errrrm, if anyone's done it before, what did you do yours on?

    A lot of questions but it just sounds interesting

    some schools offer it as a lesson, some offer it as something to do in a free period, others say everyone has to do it.

    You'd don't need any specific grades to do it.

    I did mine on the use of robotics in delivering aid to wartorn and third world countries.

    When you choose what to do it on, be careful, some topics you'll find extremely difficult to reach the word count, others like mine, you'll find that you can't put in as much detail as you'd like due to the word count limit.

    My experience with it has been horrendus but thats mainly beauase of my schools entire lack of motivation for the EPQ. Something I wish I had been informed about before I took it....:unimpressed:

    I did about the soical history of tea and hopefully will be getting a good grade even though I had to teach myself about what the specifications are ect...

    The actual project (should) help with skills such as independant learning, research and presentation. It is not recognized by universities however does count towards ucas points.

    My EPQ title is “The planning and the evaluation of the Sixth Form leavers' prom.” I've created a portfolio of stuff decided so far and how we've raised money from parties etc etc etc, as well as this I've made an online blog, because the event hasn't happened yet (which I knew when I took up the EPQ).

    I have my presentation in a few weeks and I haven't the foggiest what I need to put in it the basis of the event is planned and the most of it is done, but what am I meant to actually talk about in my presentation because this book my teacher gave me to help us is actually *******s!

    Can anyone help please ?

    I still can't quite decide what my EPQ title should be! I know that I want to do some kind of comparison between medicine and surgery based treatments. But I can't quite decide which disease I want to focus on! Does anyone have any ideas? Any help!!!??

    PS, Like the idea of Cardio or Neuro, so any diseases that have enough literature in one of those areas would be completely awesome.

    Thanks for any help

    Can anyone confirm if the 5000 words includes references or not, or does it have to be 5000 of your own words??

    Your presentation is marked out of 10 (at my college anyway, it may differ), which goes towards your final grade for the EPQ-therefore it is a must to do it. I get nervous too, but if you really feel you can't do it in front of loads of people, ask your teacher if it can be just them and a few of your friends-that way it is a more comfortable setting for you. And practise it loads, if you know what you're going to say, you'll feel more confident in it.
