Hey everyone! I have been going back and forth with my research question, but I am still confused if I should stick with it and continue. Currently it is about altruism and if a person can truly perform altruistic actions. I saw that this topic is in our coursebook, so how can I make it out of syllabus or should I change the question altogether? Thank you!

Play it safe and change the question altogether if you're struggling to create one outside of the syllabus with this particular topic.

I did an EPQ (basically the non-IB version of the extended essay for A Level students), and my topic was from the field of psychology. I did my EPQ on psychometrics (more specifically, the accuracy of the IQ test). I did not realise it initially, but after my research, I discovered that it was a topic that was quite strongly linked to psychology.

If it's not in the IBDP's psychology syllabus, maybe you could do something on psychometrics (although you'd have to be interested in that subfield of psychology)?
