Hi, so I just finished writing the 5000 word essay, and I have my presentation evening in a week. I was just wondering, how much content should I have on each slide? Should it be brief (using just key words/phrases) or should it be full of content? I know I can't read off my slides, but I was just wondering which might be the best avenue to go down? If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you

Hi DeludedFall,

When I did my EPQ presentation, one small criticism I received was for having too much content on some of my slides. I would therefore suggest having a few bullet points on each, so that your audience has enough time to read through them while you speak about what's on each slide. Also, remember to keep specialist terminology from your EPQ topic to a minimum, as your audience may not understand it

I'm just putting together my powerpoint for the presentation, and after talking through it with my supervisor, she recommended fewer words and more images (depending on the topic you might have more/less than others)

If you need the information while talking, write out a script/ have cue cards and practice.

Thanks for the advice, I've stuck to just a few words
