    My EPQ is going to be focused on science. More specifically, physics. Even more specifically, gravity.

    Due to the nature of physics, I am unable to go into the problems in too much depth, as the level of mathematics is beyond me.

    Moreover, my teacher has told me that simple research won't be enough; I need to analyse. I need to form my own conclusions.

    I can't seem to think of many titles for this. My first was going to be "Which model is the most likely candidate for quantum gravity?", going into quantum loop theory and string theory. This was too difficult for me (namely because someone who'd studied it for over a decade told me they'd have problems doing it in depth).

    So that was scrapped.

    My other idea was: "How has gravitational theory developed and how will it continue to develop?" This was apparently a bit too broad and descriptive (the first part) and therefore wouldn't contain enough analysis. It was scrapped.

    My idea now is most likely: "How will the discovery of gravitational waves open up new areas in science and lead to more discoveries?" or something similar.
    I think this is too descriptive. When I'd get into it, I'd be regurgitating information. I wouldn't be forming my own conclusions.

    Could someone give me some advise? I'm very stuck and confused about what to do.

    I think an answer may be to relate physics to philosophy and move away from gravity? Or perhaps to focus on another area of science and relate that to philosophy?

    What are you opinions?
