    Hi,I'm currently studying the International Baccalaureate and I am hoping to apply for Biological Sciences. I'm struggling to come up with an interesting research question to investigate for my Biology Extended Essay, any suggestions would be much appreciated! I need something relatively unique and strongly biology focused as it will be something I speak about in my personal statement/at interview. (hoping to apply for Oxford, Imperial, Bristol...)If you have any ideas of interesting questions/things uni's would be fairly impressed by haha I would be so grateful!

    The general topic areas I would find interesting include, animal behaviour (although I am restricted to investigations in my school lab and strict policy on use of animals), biofuel production and plant biology. Although I love biology and I would investigate anything happily I just need a question!

    I thought about investigating something to do with algal biofuel production- but I couldn't narrow down a specific question with an independent and dependent variable, method etc.

    Please help hahaThank you!
