The Extended Project Qualification at St John Payne Catholic School

Course description

The Extended Project is a Level 3 qualification that was introduced to the school in 2009. The Extended Project Qualification is equivalent to half an “A” Level. It is graded, and carries the same UCAS points, as an AS Levels except that an A* grade is available.

At St John Payne we offer AQA’s Extended Project Qualification to AS students as they embark on their A2 courses.

  • The Extended Project offers students a unique opportunity to develop essential skills for higher education and the workplace, in a subject area of their own choice.
  • The Extended Project gives students more control over their study than ever before. You have a free choice of project topic, so you can choose to explore a further aspect of a subject you're studying, or another subject, or choose a topic in which you have a personal interest.
  • This Level of choice and flexibility means students are engaged and motivated, and gain valuable research and project management skills along the way.
