    Don't start at the start, do all the other parts (so then you won't have an overly long introduction and go over word count). Write out a plan and do little sections that you can tackle, then you know how much you've done v now much is left, Harvard reference as you go, not at the end my friend did it and it was awful for her, I ended up doing some of it. Make sure you have a good "discussion" as this gets high marks! Find the AO for your exam board and make sure you are meeting the criteria
    Thanks for that, ill be sure to take that in mind.
    Do you have any advice for the presentation? (This is the presentation in which you explain how you did stuff-im unsure about this as all i really have to do is a load of Internet research and then write it all up).

    Hi, I was wondering if it would be possible for someone just to read through my EPQ, and to tell me their thoughts on it?

    I got an A* in mine. It was a maths-based one, and I produced an artefact (website).

    Has anyone got any questions or anything they would like to ask me?

    I think that's up to your school/college.

    I did it in year 13 in a sixth form college.

    Yes! What extra stuff did you submit, and what was your logbook like?

    I actually had the computer version of the logbook so I typed things up and I put in a LOT more than the gaps on the written one let you.

    Because I did an artefact instead of an essay, there was only 1000 words minimum I had to write for my thing you have to write. So there was no upper bound on how much I could say! I went through the spec and saw what my exam board wanted to see candidates do, and I did that for every section! Like when I analysed my sources, I went through a long list of checks with them all (trustworthy, bias, useful, etc).

    I got a lot of feedback while I was making my website, and made sure that I noted it down, commented on it, and acted on it (if I felt it was necessary!)

    The things im most worried about is the paperwork and the presentation at the end. Seeing as though you've already answered some stuff about the paperwork, do you have any advice as to how to approach the presentation and what is should be prepared for?
    Thanks
    On a purely curious note (im studying both Maths and Further Maths), is your website actually on the Internet for us to see?
