I'm having trouble deciding on a research question for my Extended Project Qualification. I want to do veterinary medicine at university and I'm currently studying biology, chemistry and geography at A level. I was thinking of doing my EPQ about how animal behaviour has developed over the past few years or about how and to what extend human interaction has affected animal physiology but I don't know if I should change my topic to more of a veterinary medicine focus instead.
If anyone has done their EPQ recently or is studying Veterinary Medicine would you mind helping me out a little?
Also, what universities do you recommend I go to? I was thinking Cambridge or Nottingham if I can get the grades

I'd recommend you to go to whichever uni you can get in to. They all have different methods of evaluating candidates so target the ones to will work well for you. Any of them will qualify you to work as a vet
Cambridge and Nottingham are very different. Cambridge gets a lot of flak on here but my daughter has just started her 2nd year there and is very happy with her choice.
Have a good read on some of the threads here as there is plenty of discussion already.

Hey I do the same a levels as you, I’d be wary of applying to Cambridge as they are the only uni that say they don’t like geo as a 3rd a level as they would prefer maths/physics and their admissions tests contains at least one of them so it may put u at a disadvantage but it is definitely still possible to apply and get it.

Try and do as many open days as you can and talk to students that are actually at the vet school. What suits one person might not suit another I found visiting cities and campuses the best way to get a feel for them although I couldn’t always go inside any buildings due to covid.

I’ve just finished my EPQ and I’d say do it on what interests you! What you are considering is relevant as it’s different and not a common topic while still animal related and you could always put more of a veterinary twist on it by interviewing/surveying vets too and looking at how it effects vets.
