    I am on the discussion section and totally confused about what the difference is between the research review and what you do in the discussion. Someone please help!!! Btw my exam board is edexcel and I'm doing the level 3 qualification
    The research (or literature) review is where you go over all the main research and arguments that already exist on the subject, just to give an overall background to the area. The discussion tends to be longer, and is where you start giving your take on the arguments, discussing their strengths and weaknesses. That'll hopefully link on well to your conclusion

    Ah, I'm in year 13. I also go to a good school and the supervisors/coordinators are incredibly helpful. However, I think our schools do the EPQ differently, as currently the year 12s are having lessons on managing time, referencing, all the key skills essential to complete the thing. And once they end in around April, it's all go go go ready to do a presentation in March or if you want to, November - whereas you guys seem to be completing it in year 12 is seems?

    Either way, its great that you're confident about it all!

    Very good question! I'm a really confident individual and can speak easily in public, but even I get nervous. Just practice practice practice and think when you do it it's just another practice, that's the best advice I can give

    I found I actually quite enjoyed my presentation! Just remember that usually you will be 100% more knowledgeable about your topic than your audience so you really are in control. Try and embrace the mindset that you are a teacher and you're in control - it's a chance to show off!

    Public speaking is scary, but usually only if you have no clue what you're saying. Like futuremedic said, practice will help.

    My conclusion's 23 words long. Ive basically said that im rejecting my null hypothesis because the probability the results were due to chance factors is 0.05% or less.

    Oh right ok I think mine might be a little longer it's just that I'm running close to my word limit, I know it's only a guide but I think you should only go about 10% over!
