Extended Project Qualification at Chislehurst School for Girls
The Extended Project is an AS Level where the student decides on a project of their own choice. They must produce a written report, and production log (like a diary) and must produce, and present, a presentation.
The report must be either: * 5000 words long, OR * 1,000 words + make a product/produce a CD/carry out an event.
You will be taught research methods, but the rest is up to you. You will not be taught a subject, as your project is individual to you. You will have a mentor assigned to you to help you through the project.
5 x A-C in English and Maths, commitment to working independently. commitment to attending enhancement days, and other events, specifically set up to cover EP. You are likely to be a high-achiever if you are to complete this project to the level required.
Your work will be marked internally, then externally moderated. You will be assessed on your ability to identify, design, plan and complete the project (20%); use resources, obtain and select information from sources and analyse data (20%); develop and realise your project, solve problems, and take decisions critically (40%); finally review and evaluate your outcomes (20%).
Universities believe the Extended Project shows a student‟s ability to work independently and, thus, they believe it is an extremely useful AS Level to have. So much so, that there is an A* grade available which is worth 70 UCAS points. Therefore, it is likely that completing the Extended Project will help enable you to get into university and/or help you secure a career of your choice.
