May seem like a really stupid question, but in the EPQ, you are meant to reference and create a bibliography and I kind of thought they were both the same thing ?

The referencing goes in the text (footnotes for preference, although some disciplines use Harvard referencing) the bibliography is an alphabetised list of all the sources you've read that goes at the back and are divided into source type.

So the stuff that you are referencing is listed alphabetically on your bibliography?

Yes, but also stuff you've read and not included. Shows the breadth of your reading.

Organised into books, journal articles and so on.

Alphabetised within these categories by the name of the author.

Norton1 is correct, the difference is essentially that in a bibliography you can have general reading which aren't citations in the project, just stuff you read.

Don't feel stupid, it is confusing, and I find it's sometimes explained really badly in school which just confuses things. If you get stuck there's a good book called cite then right which is really good for Harvard referencing and simple to understand.
