    Would anyone be able to send me an A/A* example of an epq? I just want to look over the structure and what sorts of things to include in the activity log and literature review. I am basing my epq on my nuffield project and just want to make sure I am doing the right thing. If anyone has some general tips for the epq that would be great as well.

    Hey there!

    The best EPQs, in every sense, focus on detail. In your log - why did you choose to the Nuffield project over other options you discussed - what made it more practical or more relevant. You also need to consider the nature of the task. For example, I started out with a massive question about US Politics that not even a PHD thesis could answer in the boundaries of the assessment. I then used this and tracked how I developed my question as a result.

    Structure of the essay will vary wildly for each EPQ and so examples won't help you much, however, some key points. Break up your work, use headings and have clear paragraphs which flow.

    Hope this helps.
