What makes an outstanding EPQ presentation?

The presentation is the moment when you can show off your knowledge of your topic to a non-specialist audience. The structure of your presentation should be: 10 minutes’ presentation followed by 5-10 minutes’ questions and answers.

Other than the report writing (or artefact), the presentation is the highlight of your EPQ journey. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to spend lots of time preparing for your presentation and to think carefully about its format and delivery.

If you choose to use PowerPoint (the most common option), then ensure that the slides are clear and concise (e.g. pictures and diagrams with little text). Any photos (or anything that you didn’t create) that you place on the slides will need to be referenced. The PowerPoint is just an aide for your presentation – most of the focus is on you!

You will need to decide on whether there should be any large scale audience participation (be aware this takes up lots of valuable time) or whether you will give the audience a handout. It is best to discuss this as this depends on your chosen topic of study and is therefore not suitable for all projects.

I would recommend using cue cards. These are small cards with a selection of points for guidance on what you should say. This allows you to engage with the audience. Do not read a speech!

In the Q&A session, think carefully about what you are going to say. You will be asked a range of questions about the chosen topic of study as well as your EPQ journey.
