What is the memory of the brain?
What is consciousness?

On a side note, not sure how big a difference EPQ makes to uni offers, grades and personal statement are a better place to divert you attention to.

good idea, i can't really do memory as it is covered in As psychology for AQA A Unit 1 and we can't pick a topic related to our studies but the question on consciousness sounds interesting! Thanks , and ik it may not make a big difference but as a medicine hopeful with no voluntary experience as of yet , any opportunity where i can show off independent learning skills will be beneficial and it will give me something to talk about on my personal statement and hopefully at my interview.

I did an EPQ that was medical related and ended up getting a B. The EPQ is ridiculous to do when it comes to scientific theory. It just doesn't work. If possible avoid doing the EPQ it's useless for you anyway. But if you're gonna do something related to medicine go for ethics. For example the ethics of abortion, patient confidentiality, the amount of access doctors have to medicines and their patients(Harold shipman), clinical drug trials, alternative medicine(placebos etc).

I think it's a good topic but the title is too vague, needs to be specific for an EPQ(hence it's a bit useless to do a science EPQ). Also there isn't actually that much you can talk about you'll find that you might be running out of things to say, so it wouldn't be good for an EPQ. You have to remember that majority of the marks come from the production log and all the admin side of things rather than your actual essay. Maybe something on holistic medicine?

I agree that offers, grades and personal statement should have the majority of your attention, but if you have the time EPQ can be really useful. It gets you used to referencing and writing dissertation style essays, which will be useful when you start university. Also, if you just miss out on the grades you needed to get into your first choice university, they will consider taut you have EPQ and that could spruce you the place (lots of universities have said this when I asked them about EPQ). :-)
