Extended Project Level 3 at Writhlington School

Course description

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) provides an opportunity for students to extend their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus, stand out and prepare for university or their future career. It can also be used to earn extra UCAS points.

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a single piece of work of a student’s choosing that demonstrates evidence of planning, preparation, research and autonomous working. Students can undertake a project on a topic of their own choosing, which may or may not be linked to their A-level subjects. Worth 50% of an A Level, compared to old AS Levels which are only 40% of an A Level.

Course content

The EPQ is an independent research project and students identify their own questions or artefacts.

Teaching is provided through the extra-curricular period on Wednesday afternoons together with identified support lessons.

Our EPQ is linked to Southampton University and students will take part in two visits to where they will have access to the University Library and online resources and individual support from university research staff.
