    Hello

    I personally structured my EPQ essay like this:

    1. Introduction (bear in mind that the introduction is often easier to write at the end of the project)

    Start by introducing your question, for example: “The question I am researching is '[title question here]'", then explain the aim of your project, i.e. what you plan to find out. Also mention what sources of information you will use, and how your essay is going to be structured.

    2. Main essay

    Here you should discuss all of the main points and arguments which will help to answer your question. This should be the bulk of your essay; remember to use paragraphs and reference any quotes, images, maps etc that you use so that the examiner can refer to them in the bibliography.

    3. Conclusion

    In the conclusion you should briefly discuss the most significant points/arguments again and come to a conclusion which answers your original title question.

    I hope that helps
