Of course you can start now Get ahead on thinking up of a topic and a title for your EPQ; this is often achieved through doing some preliminary research. Ask yourself whether you want to research something directly related to your future career path, or whether you want to do your EPQ on something you just find interesting. Start looking for sources (books, websites, documentaries, radio) that you can use for your EPQ and take down all of their details to aid referencing later on. Seek advice from people who have already completed an EPQ. You should also take a look at the Specification/Production Log online to see what the stages of the EPQ will be. I started my EPQ in the six-week holidays last year and got it done by Christmas. Once my EPQ was out of the way, I found I could focus more on my other A2s, so I would highly recommend doing some work on it now! Good Luck

Yeah you definitely can, my school actually says if we haven't finished a 'significant' portion of the research by September we get dropped from the course.

Because the EPQ is your project, you can definitely get started. Pick a subject and read up about it. Then choose a title that really interests you and find research into that. I suggest that you break the title down into aims that will ultimately help answer the question and that can form the back bones of your essay.

My friend did an advice video too:
