    Hi I'm trying to do an EPQ on something to do with psychology and was hoping someone had an idea of a topic?

    All of it that's the problem I don't know what to look at specifically because I am so fascinated. Having another option would be really helpful

    Just Google psychology, look at news and journals for inspiration. Personally my EPQ is not psychology based but I know people doing about attraction, anorexia, Stockholm syndrome and the likes. Maybe try talking to your psychology teacher for ideas too!

    Hi! I did an EPQ last year, wasn't psychology related whatsoever but I did get an A* in it at the end.

    I'd suggest searching for articles surrounding psychology (BBC News tends to be the least biased, acting as a platform for your own opinion), list for each what you agree and disagree about them. For a good section of the EPQ, you're going to have to debate your question so having a strong opinion on what you're writing about is vital

    I did mine on the nature/nurture debate of addiction and got an A in it. Are you taking psychology for an A-Level? If so, then whatever topic you choose can't be on you specification, so make sure to heck that when you find a topic you like.
