It wouldn’t hurt to! I would spend this time picking apart your question, maybe mind map your idea and decide what questions you want to answer, what aspects of the topic interest you etc. The best way to start an EPQ is with an understanding of what exactly you want to do it on.

Maybe reserve the actual writing/process of your EPQ for when you start sixth form, but definitely get a feel for and brainstorm topics that you’re interested in.

START NOW!!! trust me on this do start it now while you have time on your hands otherwise you'll have so much extra work on top of starting a levels, if you can try and look at past epq papers and maybe do a mook course on your subject and save any references you do use this will save you so much time in the future. x

regarding your epq title they try and get you to show how you've adapted and improved certain aspects of your epq so i think you should start off with that title for now and maybe add more detail to it as you do more and more research and make it more specific to a certain aspect of that topic so maybe "in different countries" or "throughout time", things like that.
also for your subjects, i didn't take English or sociology but for geography i would recommend you find out what exam board you are going to be under and download the exam specifications this really helps with giving you a rough idea what you will be studying and help you make a decision if you want to buy a revision guide and which one to buy. x

you'd need to add who it would be a sustainable career for or when or where they will always ask you to be more specific x

as long as you're not plagiarizing direct content from the specification you should be fine but you can always slightly alter your topic while you're doing research
