When I receive my results I'm hoping to be able to do the Extended Project qualification. However, I'm still behind on stuff and I'm panicking on whether or not I should start this year or start in Year 13. My idea is to do "Social Change in America from 1800s to Present Day". I was thinking of doing a few events for each millennium and comparing them and evaluating their effects on today and social change. Is this idea too vague and too much work? I was going to do the big essay.

1800s-2016 is a very long timeline and an incredibly large amount of work. You wouldn't be able to do it in-depth as well as manage your a levels.
I'm going into Year 13, so I know the workload of AS. Its a huge jump from GCSE, and I don't think 'GCSEs were a breeze' either.
I had to retake year 12 cause I couldn't take my AS exams last year, so I've been through the cycle twice already.
I'm taking essay-based subjects; history, geography, english lit. This meant I would often have three essays to write every week. Three essays. I didn't take the EPQ but will take it in year 13. So imagining doing another essay ontop of my humanities ones is crazy!
Pick a shorter time period, personally writing about a 20 year or 50 year change sounds more doable imo. And it would also mean, you could write in greater detail.
