We've been doing something similar for a while under the old system - we were with Edexcel and there was an Individual Assignment option for Unit 4. The main differences are that the old IA had no yr restriction and it was written up in 4 recently reduced to 3 hours under exam conditions.
But we will still let them work independently mostly in the school library. There are always a few topics that staff are unfamiliar with but the kids love picking something a bit different, and there are loads of opportunities for cross-curricular stuff.
Once they've picked a question, we advise them on a range of reading, help them focus their arguments, and give them general structural tips. We try and set them intermediate deadlines - the main one is that they have to give a 5-minute presentation on their argument and the sources they've used.

Long-term Member Members posts. The ability of students to pick their own personal study questions was a very popular aspect of the old AQA A2 coursework unit. However, it is important to realise that the new coursework is substantially different, not only in the year requirement but also in the rubric that the topic chosen for coursework must not overlap with material studied in the other 3 units.
It is therefore vital to have all the topics that your candidates intend to study validated by the board to ensure that they are acceptable under the new Specification. In memory of my boyhood hero Jim Clark Still need to do some reading over the next two weeks to firm up my thinking. We currently run the Edexcel IA mentioned above by Seb so we will be using many elements from the current structure book reviews, presentations, etc.
AQA have never been keen on coursework based on conspiracy theories, for example, in apparent contrast to Edexcel. As I say, get all topics and questions OK'ed by the Board first. Conspiracy theories have always been a popular initial choice! But we've usually managed to shift the focus while keeping the interest. Last year, for example, solving the assassination of JFK became an analysis of the domestic policies of Kennedy and Johnson; and finding the Holy Grail became an examination of the trial of the Templars.
