Listed below, therefore, are eleven suggestions that will provide ample inspiration for an inspired and brilliant essay at any level for any pupil.
- Is the problem of cheating in schools better or worse now than 20 years ago?
- What rights should schools have to punish pupils?
- Can torture ever be ‘right’?
- Should we use animals for medical research?

- Is it ever right to kill another person?
- Does homework help children learn or not?
- Are bankers paid too much?
- Are taxes fair?

Cheating is a big problem in schools, but it is difficult to tell whether the problem is getting worse, staying the same or getting better.
Sometimes students need to be punished but is corporal punishment too much? Does verbal chastisement go far enough?
Sometimes torture is used as a means to get vital information for the benefit of others. Is that admissible?
Medical research has given us so much in the last 100 years, and a lot of that is down to using animals for medical research. Does that make it right?
Children misbehave, especially in schools. But are they doing worse things than 100 years ago or not? Are they in fact staying the same?
Tampons are taxed as a luxury item whereas men’s razors are not because they are ‘necessary’. Is that fair? Should we be putting tax on men’s razors, too, or taking the tax off of tampons?
If someone is attempting to kill you, is it alright to kill them in self-defence? When else is killing someone else admissible?
A lot of people - especially children - complain about homework. Is it harmful or not?
Bankers earn a lot of money, and some think they earn it unfairly. How much is ‘too’ much?
Some people pay more, some fewer, taxes. Does the current system benefit some and not others?
Is it only possible for a certain person to get into power? Does the voting system properly represent our choices? What does it mean to be ‘fair’?
