What makes an A* EPQ?

Getting an A* on your EPQ begins with picking a creative, individual and exciting question that is both specific and sufficiently broad to provide a detailed response. Above all, the most successful EPQs are those that genuinely interest the participant. 

In order to create such a question, think ahead. Create mindmaps and document plenty of research. From here, you need to refine your ideas. Successful EPQs demonstrate progression and development from the initial collection of vague ideas to the polished final product. 

Additionally, you must remember that the process of creating the project is as important, if not more important than the final product. Therefore, ensure that your log book is always up to date and completed as thouroughly as possible. This will entail continuous evaluation 

Furthermore, use a variety of research methods, as carefully considered primary and secondary research will always impress. My EPQ involved comparing approaches to the translations of Mallarmé's poetry, therefore I used letters and E-Mail correspondances with translators as an appendix to my project. 

Finally, don't overlook the presentation. For many candidates, the presentation constitutes both the final hurdle and the most daunting element. Therefore, be organised, practise presenting, create cue cards and an eyecatching powerpoint. These aspects are not necessary components, but are certainly helpful to a confident delivery. To prepare really thoroughly, you could consider questions you might be asked in the Q&A which follows the presentation and practise answering spontaneously.
