i'm started the Extended Project Award and because it has such a huge spectrum to what you can do, i am soo stuck on what to do!!
i'm doing spanish, history and bio for a level.
i'm torn between writing an essay on something i can really get stuck into, and one that will have relevance to the degree i wanna do (bio or hist.. (will decide after as results!)
so i'm interested in hearing the most interesting essay you've ever written, i'd be gateful of all ideas.
i'm liking the idea of somethign historical, as history essays have always bene my strong point, and i really can't see myself writing a 5000 word essay about somethign scientific unless its really interesting like 'plants that can feel emotions' (trust me, its spooky.)

I found the Extended project to be a terrible terrible thing.
Anyway, I still say my favourite projects were the ones I did when I was in primary school (sounds stupid but there you're not restricted by all the assessment objectives). I did one project about knitting where I looked at the history of wool and knitting and I put some samples in it too. I also did an interesting study on ancient egypt. These are probably no good for you but possibly look into something historic with a twist rather than the everyday topics

If you want to do history or biology at university, then do the history of biological advances or something.

This probably wouldn't mean a lot, but the most interesting essays and projects I've written recently were an SSRP about Takashi Miike, and a different essay about film censorship and the historical and social aspects over three differing systems (BBFC/MPAA/Eirin)

Probably in my second year essay, "Capital Punishment: Should it be legit in the UK?". It really made me think about it.
