    I'm going to be doing an EPQ in year 13 (I think we have summer too) and I am wondering which topic to base it on.

    I was wondering if it will be more beneficial to choose a different subject to what I study at A level, or to base it on one which I do study?
    The benefits of doing a different subject would be that it would show my academic skills, in comparison to my creative, which are more evident as I study art, media, film studies and religious studies.

    But seen as I want to do either Fine Art or Film and TV production at Uni, I don't know whether to work on one of these so that I can use it for my portfolio.

    I'd definitely consider doing one based around what you would like to study at university. Not only will it allow you to explore your interests, it's something to talk about on your personal statement
