EPQ EssayWatch this thread
hello! fellow epq taker here (finished and got it graded already hahah) and i think perhaps you could change our question to 'how' instead of should so you have more to talk about. perhaps 'how has the influence of social media affected the court's decision of high profile investigations?' or maybe 'should the influence of the media be considered during the court's decisions of high profile investigations?' hope this helps and best of luck!!
thanks for the reply (on a different account here), what grade did u get? how do you think I could then find research and information to write about such as examples, could you help me with the structure with it please as I'm struggling a bit too much with EPQ right now
I achieved an A*! (45 marks) I think how I would structure it if I were you would be to list some key factors (maybe 3 or 4) other than the media that also affect high profile investigations. Then, you could create full-fleshed sections about a few modern-day examples as case studies and explain how they affect a case and what you think about their significance towards a court's final decision. ultimately, for your media section you can fully explain the George Floyd case and how effective the media is during high profile investigations and evaluate its effectiveness compared to other factors. in your conclusion you could analyse whether the media should/shouldn't be taken into consideration during investigations and how other factors could contribute more. also, including primary data is extremely beneficial - even if its as simple as recording a table from a survey you conducted. you could potentially send a survey out to people about their opinions of if they think the media shoukd/shouldnt be banned or about how the media has effected their opinion on the George Floyd case. hope this helps!! xx
