    Before I found out my GCSE grades I really wanted to work in the field of mental health/phycologist however i did not achieve the grades required which made me really disappointed. I was able to get back into A - Levels but I just couldn't do the subjects I wanted to follow that career. I was then introduced to the EPQ and I was told that I could do this to give me a chance to apply for that positions. I was wondering if anyone could possibly help me as I would love to prove myself and my teachers that I am capable.

    Ps. Because of the subjects I have chosen I am going down the career of social worker! Should I do my EPQ on that instead or stick to medicine! Thank you!!!

    To be honest universities don't care too much about what the topic of your EPQ is, it is more of a way to show them that you are capable of working independently and are a well-motivated student. My advice would be to pick a topic that you are enthusiastic about and pursue that, otherwise you will not enjoy taking part in the EPQ.
If you won £30,000, which of these would you spend it on?
