Surely the point of an EPQ is to find your own sources and do your own research…no??

yeah, I have but seeing resources that other people have used allows you to see the bigger picture. And I'm lazy.

I hope you are not planning to do medicine because no one likes a lazy doctor.

Lazy is an understatement. I got all 9s in my gcses apart from one 8 in English lang. I am a prefect, have done silver dofe, ncs and I am currently doing gold dofe as well as an epq. Doing bio, chem maths and I am a biology ambassador. Bro, I'm not lazy its just to save time.

You're either lazy or you're not...?

Anyway, you can't always rely on other people in life - do your own research as Gabi said above.

It will literally just take 5 minutes - there's a whole world of information if you even Google this.

Save time…by copying someone else’s work instead of doing your own.

If you could read you would have seen that I just asked for the sources they used not for their epq. some stupid guy you are.
If you could read what the person you’ve quoted was referring to, you would have realised that they were mentioning a way to find your own sources and not anything related to do with anyone else’s EPQ. If you want to argue, at least read what has been said and refute that instead of making up a pre-existing notion that you already discard. Could perhaps be a vital EPQ skill as well

So why are you doing an epq if you don't have the time to do it? Are you trying to get an a* without working? Your good gcse grades and being a prefect doesn't qualify you to cheat in an epq lol

Your epq is supposed to be unique. Examiner's want to know what your journey was to find those sources. They won't want to hear that you used sources other people used because you couldn't be bothered.

me asking for the sources someone else used is like asking someone to borrow a textbook. I am just looking to see what other people have used - I have already done my own research and I have my own sources. I want to see what other sources people have used to see if I can talk about other things that I originally didn't think of. You just pick out the information you like from multiple sources to make a good argument.

Pick a different question the answers obvious for someone with a heart. Theres no gradient or exceptions EVERYONE should be treated and cared for no matter what. The essay is just one word long: yes.

Sorry to break it to you but just because you do well in your GCSEs does not guarantee that you'll do well in A-Levels. A-Levels require twice or thrice the effort. I wonder why you chose to do an EPQ if you can't even be bothered to do the easy task of trying to find some sources. It's just googling it. It's part of the adventure. You find sources according to the questions brewing in your head. What more do you need to find out? Which topic don't you understand?

Ethical questions are good to argue because there is no definitive answer making it easy to evaluate and get a good mark. Otherwise, I completely agree with you, everyone should be treated equally.
