    Can anyone help? I'm finishing off my EPQ and just have the last few bits to do - I'm not entirely sure what sort of stuff to put in them! We've had taught lessons but they've been pretty unhelpful. Any ideas about what to include in the abstract, introduction, conclusion and evaluation? I know the basic ideas of what to put in each but I just wondered if anyone who's already done it can give me some tips.

    Also, do I need to do any sort of concluding statement/paragraph at the end of my discussion, or just leave it at the end of my final point? For the bibliography, do I include all of the sources I've looked at or just the ones I've referenced?
    Thank you!

    for your introduction, explain your question, i did mine on optogenetics so i defined that branch of science and explained the development of biological techniques, so its almost an explanation of why you've chosen your question and what you think its important that people need to know about what you're going to do before they dive into your writing. You don't need an abstract unless you've done primary research, and that consists of your method and what the research was conducted for.
    As for the conclusion, it might help to split it down into things you've found out, problems you've encountered and if there's anything left about your question that you couldn't find an answer for, or if you were left with any other questions once you'd finished writing and researching, its tying everything together and all the little loose ends in your head

    leave a concluding statement for the conclusion, leave your final point as it is, and the bibliography is only a list of sources referenced, other sources you've looked at should all go in your source analysis.

    Hope this has been of help

    Do you have to have an argument theme throughout the essay? I've structured mine in a completely different way, because we weren't given any help with how to write it. And ive left my research till the very end.

    I believe so - you’re supposed to have a question and answer that question throughout your project
