    I am doing an EPQ this summer and need a title done by tomorrow.
    I want to do it on evolution with reference to biology, philosophy and physics but I am thinking of bringing atheism into it.
    I'm going to make a mind map so if anyone has any ideas that would help I would appreciate it!

    I'm still undecided but I like the idea of the atheism and how different arguments could come into it so the physics part would relate to the big bang, not evolution. But I could still do about evolution in respect to biology and philosophy. (Link in with Darwin & natural selection but also the design argument, Paley etc.).
    I do AS level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics so the atheism is something different but the arguments relate to my subjects if that makes sense.
    This is harder than I expected

    You really need to narrow down what you want to write about because whilst 5000 words might sound like a lot it can be quite hard to fit into. I wrote about 8500 words and you can be marked down for making your title too broad (not sure how to describe this really) with a large word count, I justified my word count in my review because I would have needed to remove a section from my essay to make it 5000 words but it could have changed my conclusion depending on the section.

    If you are going to do an EPQ on evolution, JUST do it on evolution, do not bring in stuff like the Big Bang which isn't relevant to evolution.

    Sounds a lot like philosophy more than the others. I would say watch a decent "Does God Exist?" Debate They're about 2 hours but it's enough to get an idea of all the arguments for an against.

    Thanks for the advice, I think I'll focus on evolution as I do like to go into a lot of detail so I think I would struggle squeezing in all the topics that would have to be included in the other option!

    Thank you, hopefully this will help me make my mind up. I already have a lot of content on arguments for and against but it needs to be relevant to biology (the EPQ as a whole). I have a session with my tutor soon so I should have it figured out.
