I'm trying to write my ~1500 word essay for my EPQ artefact. The topic I've chosen is to compose a piece of film music to accompany a clip (the leap of faith scene from Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse). I always struggle with essays and I'm just not sure how to structure it / what sort of points to say. Thanks in advance!

Hi!
I did an artefact EPQ too and here was the structure I used for my essay.
- Intro
- background (why you decided on that topic)
- modifications (did you have to change or refine your original idea?)
- intentions (what did you want to get out of it)
- Research
- secondary research (what research did you do - reliability)
- primary research (did you conduct any of your own research)
- target audience
- Skills development
- skills you developed
- achievements
- Project evaluation
- the process of making it
- modifications you had to make to it
- challenges and successes
- strengths and weaknesses of your artefact
- future advice (what you would do differently/learned
- The process
- how you made it
Hope this helps!
Let me know if you have any other questions.

A lot of this I wouldn't have even thought of. Having a list really helps me figure things out so thank you so much!

Hi!
Primary research is research that you conduct yourself - for example if you created a survey and sent it out to people and then collated their responses, that would be primary research.
Secondary research is research that others have done that you may refer to - for example if you read an article about a certain topic and referred to it then this would be secondary research.
I would suggest talking in detail about a few sources that you may have consulted and any primary research you have done (if you do any). When doing this, talk about the reliability of the information; was it written by a biased source, when was it written, how reliable is it.
Discuss what you took away from the research and how it aided your project.
Hope this helps!

No worries!
No, it doesn’t matter. If you haven’t done it then that’s fine, so long as you’ve done secondary research instead.
