    The entire point is that you're meant to do the planning yourself - your school isn't supposed to tell you what to do. You're marked on your independence so being told what to do by your school would completely defeat the object?

    You need to form a title such that you can analyse, evaluate, explain and include different opinions etc rather than simply narrate something (description) I remember being told to approach it impartially!

    Have you got a title at the moment? What I did was a little thought shower of various different topic areas that I was really interested in or things that I wanted to research further into. Anything that comes to mind, just write it down! They can be so random...once you've done that, consider what exactly it is within those areas you're interested in. So for example part of my thought shower just said economics, but that's so broad! I then realised I liked development economics. Another part of my mind map had "poverty, comparing wealthy countries with those in poverty" written down. And there was 1 link and something I could look into.

    Write absolutely everything that comes to mind because with the EPQ it's all about the journey
