    Hey, what would people say are the key elements to touch upon for EPQ presentation? I was thinking of including why I chose that topic, briefly touching upon research then obviously getting into the heart of it. What's the trick to doing well for AQA?
    Mine is tomorrow and I was told to discuss the following;

    Why I chose to do an EPQ
    How I decided on my topic area and title
    The research process
    Define the key word in my title and any concepts that need to be explained
    Discuss essay and conclusion
    Evaluation; successes/what you enjoyed/what would you do differently

    Mine is approximately 15 minutes with a short video

    From talking to people around my college, it varies from supervisor to supervisor as to what they want the presentation to include - there isn't really a set structure to the presentation that you have to stick to. Therefore, I would ask your supervisor what they would want you to include in your presentation, and maybe give you feedback after you have done a first draft of your slides or rehersal of your presentation.

    However saying that, I think that most supervisors would want you to say why you have chosen the topic you have and explain your findings and conclusions.

    I am doing the AQA EPQ. I have uploaded my presentation slides here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5-a...lfNWY5UjJOSWc/ and video of my presentation here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=osFHkj7Dyi4 if they are helpful.

    Good luck.

    Right, so I'd just screenshot and paste my results into the dissertation, and then talk about them? Would I have to make the images "figure 1", and then say, as figure 1 shows or such?

    Thanks for the help.

    You need to have confidence in me. I'll try to get to about 3000 words by the end of tonight if I can. I'm sure I can ramble on about some nonsense for a while.
