    Hello,

    I'm just about to start my EPQ and I've decided on a possible research question which is as follows:

    "English Law Has Failed to Strike the Right Balance Between Freedom of Speech and the Protection of Liberty. Discuss".

    Our exam board is Edexcel and the word count for our dissertation is 5,000. Is this hypothesis too broad a research question? If so, what other suggestions could you make regarding how to narrow down my research topic question?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nope I think its a good title. I might drop the discuss and consider putting Has at the start to turn it into a question, but if you want it as a statement thats up to you. Make sure it interests you.

    At least it isnt the death penalty. You are going to need to do some decent in depth research. Could be very good if you execute it properly..

    Hello,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    So, do you think this research question is one that I can answer fully, fit into the 5,000 word limit and manage to get a high B/low A grade?

    Thanks,
