    You could possibly, talk about the current global economic crisis.
    Or maybe something like 'Should UK join the Euro currency & the effects it'd have globally& politically.

    hi i am trying to decide what to do for this but am having difficulties having any good ideas...

    would preferably be something to do with either politics or economics or best of all a combination of the two!
    Something about the recession and how the UK labour government handled it, what they could have done better and what they should have done?

    There's nothing wrong with doing something a bit predictable, as long as you do it well.

    Is this an acceptable title? "How feasible is brain transplantation and could it take us to immortality?"

    No actually there would be hardly any reference to Frankenstein at all. There's actual medical research, experiments and theories about brain transplantation in real life, which have nothing to do with Frankenstein.

    Dr Robert White transplanted the heads of two monkeys onto different monkeys and they survived for a few days, albeit with paralysis from the neck downwards due to the severed spinal cords. There have been numerous other experiments like this by other doctors and scientists.

    I'm doing mine on Diagnosis. :proud: Nobody nick it. :hmmm:
    I can't find many books on it though - although I have found many websites and news articles.
    How many books are we expected to use to use for research? Will you get marked down for using too few, even if you've used other sources?

    Thanks.

    Sorry I thought you meant relating to english-- yyeahh im sure theres loads of research and would be really interesting to explore... And no doubt the ethics of it would be good as well

    or

    History: Effect of the 1998 and 1921 treaties on the IRA
    ( Don't do history a level but Irish History intrigues me )

    You have to get assessors (should be teachers) from your school. While dong the extended project you have to make a log book, and they have to comment on it and sign it. You also have to perform a verbal presentation to them which they will assess, so you will need to go through your sixth form college.

    Hello
    I'm about to start my A levels (English lit, History, Class civ & Politics) and I'm looking to do an EPQ (AQA, I think) but am a little stuck on the topic
    I'm really interested in History (as you can probably tell by my choices), especially 1960's & civil rights (Martin Luther King & the black civil rights movement in America being my absolute favourite). However, I've just done this for GCSE and I'm fairly sure that it comes into my A level course too... would it be a bad idea to do an EPQ on this?
    Any topic ideas would be very helpful :p:
    Thank you

    I think as long as you dont entirely base your EPQ on what you have learnt in class, then it should be ok. For example I studied frankenstein for GCSE and A level and and using it for my EPQ but its under Gothic Fiction which means it branches out abit. So you could use Martin Luther King, but then you could compare him to other campaigners in different times who stood up for black civil rights such as Gandi (I think) and how in some ways the government stood against them?. only if you wanted to though.
