How should I approach my extended project?

- Get started as early as possible- As soon as you have a potential topic, start researching and gathering information!  

-Make sure to attend meetings with your mentor- They have a lot to offer and a consistent level of engagement can help boost your mark. 

-Communicate with your peers- As such an independent project, talking to others also undertaking the project can be very helpful. 

-Don't leave it until the last minute- As such a large project, leaving it until the last minute, when you have other revision to do is likely to cause a large amount of stress and may harm your other subject grades. 

-Make sure to write about it on your personal statement- Universities look highly upon such a self-directed and independant project and it may be an interesting thing to talk about at an interview. 

-Make sure you are fascinated by the topic you pick- The project will take most of the year so make sure to pick a topic that you won't lose interest in. I would recommend picking a topic you already know quite a lot about and would be prepared to research at home. 

-Take note of your references as you go along- If left until the end this can be time consuming and may result in inaccuracies. 

-Enjoy it- The EPQ should be a break from your other A-level subjects and a chance to pursue your own interests!
