EPQ for oxford?Watch
Potential titles I’d use instead: ‘is copying nature the best way for us to develop new technology?’- I’d research evolution, ways species have evolved, ways people have copied nature
- something about invasive species, or potentially mimicry and camouflage in the animal kingdom
Would any of these ideas be better? Thanks for any advice
I know oxford doesn’t make the epq part of offers, although it’s compulsory at my school so I figured it would be a good way to show ‘super curricular ‘ interest. I’m thinking of applying for Biology, but I’m not sure whether my current title works as well for this. ‘How did ancient civilisation use the natural world as inspiration for medicine?’ The title will probably change, but the topic is about natural remedies and medicines, and potentially testing the effectiveness of them. I chose this because I was contemplating medicine but I’ve decided I’m not interested in that any more. Does that title still show enough interest in biology for it to be considered as ‘super curricular’? I’d be willing to change it to something more obviously biology based if I think it would help. Thanks for any advice
A good idea to relate your EPQ more to biology though would be to go through the Biology spec and see what topics there that you could research further into relating to your topic. Your idea about evolution is very good.

Specific examples are always more convincing than generic statements about "being passionate about biology" etc. Your current title lends itself to that, but perhaps your alternatives are slightly more on point?
