    Hi guys,

    I am currently completing the Education section of my UCAS form, and I'm a bit confused with adding my EPQ. I've found the qualification option to enter the details of my EPQ, but I'm not sure what to put in the 'Subject' box. The title of my EPQ was "The Extinction of the Dinosaurs: An Asteroid or a Different Cause?". Should I just type in 'Geology' which is the general subject area my EPQ falls under, or should I enter a condensed version of my title like 'Geology: Comparison of Dinosaur Extinction Theories'?

    Thank you

    I'm doing mine on Borderline Personality Disorder and the stigma. I put mine as "Psychology: Borderline Personality Disorder", so the general subject and also what I am specifically doing it on, and was told this was fine.

    Ahh okay, I think I'll put in 'Geology: Comparison of Dinosaur Extinction Theories' then as it gives the subject area plus a brief description of what my EPQ was about. Thanks

    I had to change it to 'Geology: Dinosaur Extinction Theories' as annoyingly I was one character over the limit, I think it should be fine though
