EPQ for A-Level
What is an EPQ?
The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a stand-alone qualification worth up to 28 UCAS points (the equivalent of half an A-Level). Students choose their own area of interest to study and research independently and produce either a 5000-word report or a working ‘artefact’ followed by a 1000-word report.
Why produce an EPQ?
Successful completion of the EPQ will prove that you possess the ability to go beyond the curriculum, and that you have the necessary research skills, time management and independent learning required for successful higher education.
