its probably best to do it on what you want to do at uni, youre gonna spend a lot of time on it so by showing its related to your subject really shows how you are committed to your subject
however, maybe try to combine what you wanted to do? i wanted to do one on feminism and i wanted to study history so i did one about feminism throughout history, this could maybe work for you? good luck!

Yeah I was thinking that. My supervisor recommended a minimum of 2 hours per week out of college plus more during my frees and then the 1 hour session.
That's true, I wanted to do it on how corrupt this modern Feminism is though, how it's turned into more of a man-hating cult. I can't think of how I could link that to Psychology, though
I totally get your dilemma; I agree with people on here that it would be advantageous for it to be on psychology. However, like I said, putting it in your PS is a gamble in case you don't like it and end up dropping it.
The other thing is, for you to be able to write 5,000 words it has to have substance and it also helps if you can find lots of literature about it to reference. Using my own example again, I really wanted to do my EPQ on zoonotic diseases and how they spread from animals to people, but there is very little literature on it that I could find & I couldn't come up with a good question for my title about it, so I wrote about bDger culling instead (it's at this point I think I should explain that I applied for vetmed which is why I picked those topics ).
My idea for you: you don't have to decide straight away and deciding is part of your planning process, so make two spider diagrams, one about psychology and one about feminism. Then write all of the different aspects of those topics and anythong that springs to mind, like any possible titles/questions. That way you can visually compare them and decide which you can wrote more aboutLast edited by Louiseee_; 13-09-2015 at 21:41.
