    I'm in year 12 and I asked my school (literally today) if I could do the EPQ this year instead of next and they've agreed. They asked me to think of topic ideas now but I'm unsure of what to pick.
    I don't know many people doing it so I don't know what sort of topics are chosen, but I wanted one that would surely fuel a 5000 word essay.

    My A Level subjects are: Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further maths

    Any ideas appreciated!

    Last year I was in a similar position to you... Wanted to do a EPQ in Chem Eng to boost the strength of my uni application but eventually changed my mind to a Maths EPQ instead as it seems easier.

    Nonetheless, the topics that I have considered are renewable energy, fuel cells and polymers. I don't recommend doing something we haven't been in touched with before as that greatly increases the difficulty. Further investigations of something that we have briefly learnt is preferred.

    That sounds interesting, I haven't heard of those before. Wouldn't that be considered more biological?
