    I'm just about to start the EPQ and have no idea what to do for it. I do AS Lit, AS Lang, AS Comms and have just dropped AS Business Studies... I was thinking of something society based like: with the rise in tattoos and crime among young people in recent years is it becoming fashionable instead of individualistic?
    I don't know. I'm really stuck.

    Help me guys ((
    I'm not sure I understand your topic question: it seems you are implying that there is a correlation between tattoos and likelihood of committing a crime..is that right? You could look at how society has been portrayed in various works of Literature-how different eras, for example, mock different levels in society-I did A Level English Literature-I should be good at thinking of this!

    Again I am doubting my EPQ question. I really need something with Philosophy and possibly economics? Really need some help here, and need something that I can have extensive research into.

    I was more going along the line on how it's becoming more fashionable in society. Tattoos used to commonly mean something to the individual and now they're more fashionable. I don't know
    Ooh, that's a really good suggestion! I may do something along the lines of that XDD Thanks

    Yes definitely !!

    Great, thank you!

    Also, do we have to include any evaluation of our project at the end of the essay or do we save that for the presentation?
    Well in your project log book there is space for evaluation and of course in the presentation. However, I realised lots of people were missing the top grades due to lack of evaluation. So at the very end of my project i created a separate document that I added into the appendix - in this I evaluated the successes, failures and limitations of my research/project/essay etc. I also included why I did not explore certain avenues and why I did others.

    It payed off so that's what I would advise you do

    Hello
    It's the last week before summer at college and I really need to have an EPQ title and hand in my proposal form etc etc
    I want to do one about French and ideally French literature (to help with unis etc) and I have come across the works of Charles Baudelaire, but I cannot think of a question where there will be many resources or that I am really interested in.. so I don't know what to do
    Any advice? Would be greatly appreciated!

    this is very URGENT, so it will be really helpful if someone can answer my question as my EPQ(AQA) is in for next week. I just wanted to ask what things other than my essay do i have to hand in to get into the top grades, what extra things can i do?

    and another question is that my presentation is on monday, so can anyone tell me what will make my presentation good and appealing? what things do i need to include in it?

    my essay is about mental disorders and their treatments!

    any help will be much appreciated

    I was told that the presentation was simply a way for the Supervisor/Co-ordinator to see what you did. I went all the way though, automated slides and handouts! Worth the A*

    Would this question be appropriate? Since it isn't a 'To what extent' type question...:

    "What is the likely future of global energy supply?" or something along those lines. I'd go through all the major sources of energy, critically analysing them (obviously using secondary sources) and coming to a conclusion; one which likely won't be based around one particular thing. There would be more depth than I'm making this sound, obviously. But as the bare bones, does this sound alright?

    Descartes is one of the most famous recent philosophers.

    To what extent are great titles as they allow plenty of evaluation to get the nice juicy marks and you can justify you conclusions wherever they are depending on the analysis and synthesis you have done. It certainly allows you more depth and range to hit the better parts of the mark schemes than a simple yes/no or mere analysis title.

    also ^5 for also doing about global energy ^_^

    That's interesting, thanks for sharing that. Did you do an EPQ about energy?

    I'm just a bit unsure of how to create a qusetion with similar content with a 'to what extent' title. I'll have to think about it I guess.

    When you're sourcing for the EPQ do you have to find the direct source? There's a site that would be trusted to have correct information, but doesn't source exactly how it knows a particular statistic.

    still finishing mine. "To what extent is CCS a feasible and effective form of carbon dioxide abatement in China, relative to hydroelectric power, whilst still meeting China's growing energy demands"

    so yeah =p
    I have a lot of neato sources (especially from the international energy agency which I recommend) but I think they're quiet specific to the global warming side of energy rather and CS and HEP than energy in general

    Since I love writing and I'm pretty confident at writing dark and descriptive things, I thought about doing a short story on the topic of abuse since it's always been such a controversial issue.
    THEN I saw what I was up against with all these fantastic dissertations and thought "Hell no, I cannot do that to save my life".
    SO then I figured, since you love researching, why not research the psychological aspects of abuse i.e. why, how, factual information etc. etc.
    How on earth would I link that to a piece of short story writing?
    In my EPQ summer starter booklet, it said that your chosen subject doesn't necessarily have to fall under one of the 4 categories i.e. dissertation, report/investigation, an artefact, or perfomance/production.

    I want my end product to be something meaningful not just a morbid and depressing piece of fiction. Only problem is I don't know how to mix fact with fiction. :confused:

    Thanks to anybody out there who can give me much-needed advice!
    You're awesome!
