Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) AS Level

What will I learn?

Our EPQ specification prepares students for University study, developing and providing evidence of the skills Universities are looking for:

  • experience of in-depth study in specialised topics, e.g. medical research, politics or astronomy, closer to actual University courses
  • confidence to work independently and creatively
  • practice in essay writing and independent research

Entry Requirements

Open to second year students who are on target to achieve A and B grades in their other subjects

How will I be assessed?

All EPQ students follow the same basic Project process, and have to supply the following evidence for assessment:

  • Project product, in the form of a research report, production or artefact*
  • Written report
  • Presentation of the completed Project
  • Completed Production Log

* a written report must accompany a production or artefact

Who is this course aimed at?

EPQ allows students to embark on largely self-directed projects. By taking responsibility for the choice and design of an individual project (or an individual role in a group project) they:

  • become more critical, reflective and independent learners
  • develop and apply decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • increase their planning, research, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills
  • learn to apply new technologies confidently
  • demonstrate creativity, initiative and enterprise
