What is a Strong Topic?


Selecting a strong topic is important to impress your examiner. If your topic is as interesting(or boring!) as that of others, the chances are you will not be able to play good shot. Your examiner will reward you poorly.

Hence, in order to make your project a success, you will have to ensure that the topic of your project is strong.


Just to begin with, it is prudent to select more than one topic. But, keep in mind that your topics should be interrelated so that you do not need to work on diametrically different subjects simultaneously. Start working on three to four subjects that pique your interest and then start collecting online and offline information related to these topics.


Finalise a topic on which there are plenty of published materials(include the offline sources as well). This is the way of selecting a topic that is both interesting and practical.
