Extended Project Qualification A Level

About the Course

The ‘EPQ’ assesses the independent study skills required to succeed at university. It carries UCAS points equivalent to 50% of an A-Level (this means it is worth more points than an AS-Level). EPQ is recognised by top universities as a course which challenges students to employ graduate level study skills. Many universities accept EPQ as part of a points based UCAS offer. Students will be advised on whether EPQ should form part of their programme of study at interview, or during their transition to Year 13.
