EPQ Title watch

    Hey guys!

    So, I'm considering doing EPQ, and I wanted to ask if the following hypothesis is appropriate:

    "Evaluate the view that constitutional reform since 1997 is weak, incomplete and requires further change"

    My EPQ exam board is Edexcel, and alongside this EPQ I may be picking up on, I do Government and Politics with Edexcel as well, and I recently submitted an essay with the exact same title as the one above. So, would I get a slap on the wrist by Edexcel for using the exact same title as an exam question they used for their old politics syllabus?

    I want to do this question because I feel that there is so much to discuss with it, especially concerning the judiciary and the executive branches of government.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who responds!

    Hello, I completed an epq last year. I think your whole subject idea is a good one but the actual title is a bit confusing. I was taught that the title should be a question that you can then answer via your essay. For example mine was something like 'How have cats benefited human health in the 21st century?'

    tbhh, i dont think you need the evaluate part - even i got told this, but then checked and it doesnt have to be phrased like an essay question
    so mine was about the iraq war,
    my original question was 'evaluate whether the iraq war was justifiable or not'
    but i took out the evaluate, and left it as 'was us intervention in iraq justified'
    hope this helps, good luck xx

    Try something like 'How accurate is the view that constitutional reform since 1997 was weak and incomplete, resulting in the requirement for further change?'

    I would be careful about using anything that you have had sent to the exam board before though, as even if they don't directly check, your supervisor will be checking that you aren't just doing a topic that you have learned about in another subject, because that it not allowed. It would be kinda annoying to write the whole thing to find out later that you can't use it.
    I would also recommend that you do at least half of your source-finding before you set your heart completely on a question- it makes writing the literature review pretty difficult (Believe me, I changed my question over halfway thorough my research, and after writing the introduction, a mistake which cost me about 2 hours correcting what i had written)
