If you are writing about personal experience, it is probably not a good idea!

You don't need to do an EPQ to get into medicine, trust me. It'd be much better to focus on getting AAA.

If you can balance your A levels with an EPQ don’t be discouraged! I did it during my A levels and I was fine

In terms of your topic, no particular topic will give you a particular advantage for medicine. But, if it’s a topic you’re interested in and comes up during interviews, it’s a nice talking point.

What would you want to talk about regarding recreational drugs? There’s lots of different angles you could take it.

i'm mostly interested in the effects recreational drugs have on people, and as a result, the effects play a big part on how people view the use of recreational drugs

but i not sure how to put this into a statement-do you have any other angles in mind?

Okay so by effect what do you mean? There are many different angles you can take/ incorporate into your report.

Are you talking from biological (physiological perspective), sociological perspective (war on drugs, stigma surrounding drug users, stereotypes of drug users) or psychological (mental health concerns surrounding drugs, consequences of using drugs)

All those elements could be explored based on your research question and what interests you. If you can add in the cost to the NHS (financially, resources, time from staff, changing demand of care)then I would as I think that can easily be brought up in interviews too

Hope this helps a bit
