    Yeah, that's what I thought but I wouldn't want to embarrass myself by misunderstanding my offer thinking I should've been accepted but shouldn't (not that it's too complicated)

    I thought it was MENT to be good?
    i got too sick of it to finish it - maybe it gets good. i'm so far not impressed, however
    all the rumours about it reading like a bad fanfiction: believe them

    Does your school take the EPQ seriously? I knew a few people that plagiarised basically 3/4ths of their dissertation and got an A when we did it first year lmao.
    Idek if the exam board take it seriously if they didn't run it through a plagiarism check

    Thanks! Strange how they don't tell you?!

    Mine was on a group of dermatological blistering autoimmune diseases and the cellular mechanisms that lead to their development. Overall, I'd say I found the experience hard work and painstaking (many all-nighters!) but rewarding overall.

    What about you?

    Should have done a maths degree :lol: (just kidding, there is more reading than you think... but not as much as other degrees ) yeah I don't blame you, not sure where I'd skip to though.. maybe try season 2 episode 1 and see how it goes, but you can probably skip it and learn stuff about the characters (which helps for the jokes to a certain extent) as you go.

    ... I think I'm hyping it up too much
    Don't tell me I actually have to read stuff for my degree 🤔🤔🤔🤔 I thought maths was just answering maths questions and writing out proofs or am I missing something LMAO

    Hi, I'll be starting my EPQ very soon and was wondering whether you would be able to give me any tips, considering you have been through the process already?

    No, no extra reading or textbooks necessary (don't buy textbooks unless they are required for open-book exams where everyone needs them). But if you look at a page of notes it will look like a normal textbook or with some diagrams if you are lucky. You have to be able to understand proofs and be able to refer to them / use them - the problem is remembering them as you learn many but are tested on few in the exam - there are some that you will never be asked to fully reproduce either (because it's too long :lol:) but I dunno.

    Also if you study non-maths options eg accounting, finance, econometrics, teaching etc then expect more words :lol:

    I managed to see the mark scheme for Edexcel English Literature, and whilst that's a much more subjective subject since it's essay based, I would like to think my very long answers met what they were looking for.

    I refuse to get complacent about it though; I'm in the situation where I don't feel I did bad as such on any of my exams, but I am still bricking it.

    Funnily enough I have 2 modules next year (to do with teaching), each with one 3500 word essay. Fun :lol: plus I had a finance module in year 2 which was fun with a 15 marker essay. :lol: there is no escape really.

    I know, it was very frustrating! Ahh yours sounds so interesting, are you a medic? 😊 Mine was on neurodegenerative disease and how vitamin b12 deficiency is an overlooked cause!

    It was lots of hard work wasn't it?! To add to the stress, my laptop broke while I was writing my final essay draft so I had to type it all up on the Word app on my mobile phone 😂

    1. Make the topic choice interesting! If you select a topic which you find boring af, you will find it VERY difficult to work on it.

    2. Ensure the topic is relevant to what you want to do - mine was relevant to medicine for example.

    3. Don't expect it to lower your offer (especially for competitive subjects like medicine & law) as it won't but will be something interesting to discuss at interview and shows your commitment and articulacy!

    4. DO NOT prioritise it over your A-levels.

    More specifically:

    5. Don't leave everything to the last minute!! (Something I struggled with).

    6. Write down EVERYTHING you do in detail on it EVERY DAY in your work log (to save you having to fabricate stuff on your work log!!).

    7. Ensure your evaluation is thorough as there is a gold mine of marks for this.

    8. Try your best to enjoy the experience - that will motivate you! Remember, there are no marks for content, only for skills shown. But the most fun part is writing the dissertation unfortunately!
