    Hi,

    I'm thinking about basing my EPQ on the role of women in physics in the 21st century and how their example can be used to encourage more girls to go into STEM careers. It is a topic that I'm very passionate about and there is lots of relevant information available on the subject however I'm not sure whether it is a suitable title for an EPQ as it isn't the same as doing research and developing knowledge in a specific subject.

    Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to get started with a title that isn't suitable.

    Many thanks in advance

    I would suggest trying to phrase your title in such a way that you can argue for and against it - something like "To what extent" or "How far can" are good phrases to use. Then, you can structure your essay by describing and explaining the arguments for both sides, then compare them and come to a conclusion at the end. Doing this gains more marks than simply being descriptive!

    I'm sorry I can't give more specific advice

    Thanks very much for your advice. I've just had a look at the AQA guidance and they encourage this too.
