Extended Project Level 3 Blocks C & D at Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre

Course description

The Extended Project is suitable for students who are independent

and self-motivated learners as this course requires them to direct

and manage their own project and deadlines. It is essential that the

students have a passion for the topic that they decide to base their

project around.

This course can take the form of a variety of different final pieces;

students may produce an artefact, dissertation, investigation or

performance. For further information on these different formats,

please contact Mr. Ridgway or access the Extended Project on

the Pearson website at:


The course helps develop independent research, extended writing

and project management skills and teaches transferable skills

for education or the workplace. Students gain exactly half the A

Level value for UCAS points on the new tariff scale, making the

qualification more valuable than a new AS Level. The Extended

Project is a very popular qualification with universities.

Entry requirements

A grade 4 or higher at GCSE English and three other options being taken alongside the Extended Project

Future opportunities
