Extended Project AS Level at Wallington High School for Girls

Course description

The EPQ allows each student to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project. Students must choose a topic, plan, research and develop their idea and decide on their finished product.

Course content

We encourage creativity and curiosity. A project topic may be directly related to a student's main study programme, but should look beyond the specification. A finished product may take the form of a:

  • research based written report
  • production* (eg charity event, fashion show or sports event etc)
  • an artefact* (eg piece of art, a computer game or realised design).
  • *A written report must accompany these options.

Students must also record their project process in their Production Log. The process of recording and completing a project is as important as the finished product. Both the Production Log and Product will be assessed.

Entry requirements

Year 13 students must be highly motivated to pursue independent work.

Assessment

Students must also record their project process in their Production Log. The process of recording and completing a project is as important as the finished product. Both the Production Log and Product will be assessed.

Further information

Highly valued by universities, the EPQ is the best way for students to ‘stand out from the crowd’ on their UCAS application. Some universities even offer discounted offers for highly graded projects.
