TOP SIXTH FORM COLLEGE IN THE COUNTRY FOR EPQ ACHIEVEMENT

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a free-standing qualification, which is highly valued by universities and is worth 70 UCAS points: equivalent to half an A Level.

It provides you with the opportunity to work on an individual research paper, with one-to-one support from a member of College staff. As it allows you to explore an aspect of a subject you are studying, choose a topic in which you have a personal interest or do a project about an issue that concerns you.

Why take the Extended Project Qualification?

The EPQ can be particularly helpful to students wishing to pursue a career in medicine, dentistry or veterinary science. It will set you apart from other candidates who may be applying for a place at a competitive university such as Oxford or Cambridge, or onto competitive courses, as it shows you are a student who is self-motivated, imaginative and committed to studying.
