    I think it's easiest to pick a topic which is related to your A Levels and/or the degree you want to study afterwards, as not only will that be something you (hopefully) find interesting and enjoy, but it also gives you something extra to talk about in your personal statement which further demonstrates your commitment to your degree.

    I'm currently studying a degree in Geoscience, and I did my EPQ on a related geology/palaeontology topic - the different theories for the extinction of the dinosaurs. I researched the evidence supporting and opposing each theory, and then compared each one to the Asteroid Impact theory, which is the most widely accepted extinction theory
