I have no idea yet! I was thinking about my title being "is it possible to become a billionaire by trading at home?" or something to do with game or decision theory because I was also quite interested in doing a CREST award.

Have you thought about doing a CREST award and then converting it to an EPQ afterwards?

ahh great idea! hav a look at something called forex (or atleast thats how I spell it?)
I've thought about crest but haven't done it yet, But theres no point of converting it to epq because on your personal statement, you can't just say you have an epq and crest award, you'd be expected to say what projects you've done to gain the award so if you did the same project for both awards then really either the crest or the epq was a waste of time for you

EPQ hahaha. I started it just for my personal statement. Once I did the interview (and got an offer) I can't motivate myself to do the EPQ. I would rather do the dishes than open my EPQ file (and also come onto TSR like right now so that I can procrastinate):p:p

Haha, if you've got an offer then there really is no reason why you should further your work, especially on something like the EPQ

Do you mean Forex as in the foreign exchange?

I never thought about a 2-for-1 CREST/EPQ that way, but since the EPQ is project management and the CREST is actual research there would still be merit in doing 2 for 1?

yeah i guess but you wouldn't have spent any effort on gaining the epq or crest then which kinda shows you're lazy (which isn't a true reflection of yourself) what uni's and course(s) are you opting for?

I see where you're coming from, personally if I do something academic I'm going to do both and only put the CREST award on my PS if it's better than my EPQ, if not I'll stick to just an EPQ.

I'm thinking maths w/and economics, I don't really know what I want to do in the future but stuff in Defence and investment looks interesting, and you?

Good idea actually, leave the epq as extra ucas points xD

I've always thought highly of the business route, but I think i'd like to do medicine - disregarding that its a very rewarding job
