I am STRESSED. We are about to go back to school and I have not been able to have time to start my dissertation, and that is not a lie, I have had one surprise holiday after the other and bad family issues I have had to prioritise along with weeks of work experience. I'm determined not to drop it as my A level combination makes a lot of teachers tell me I have no chance of getting into oxbridge (art photography english) and so before starting an a level in a language i am fluent in, I want to get this epq off my chest. I think my exam board is AQA. my teachers are completely useless; does anyone know from experience, when exactly i should have this done by/any tips for me to do well? I am capable of writing 3000 words a day, but I need to know when it is normally due, as I have given up on listening to my school. somebody helppppp!

Your supervisor should help you a lot with an EPQ, it’s definitely not something which you can do alone as far as I know because they need to fill out sections of your log form.
If you have a topic in mind I’d start researching it to see if there are enough sources to use etc

I have lots of PowerPoints giving advice on structure etc, if you want I can email them to you. I did my EPQ last year and got an A* if it’s relevant at all, and I basically did it during summer so it definitely is doable

If you haven’t formally started the EPQ, then you’re way ahead, don’t worry- you need your supervisor to approve your title and topic before you start writing)
