The Extended Project Qualification A Level at Bourne Grammar School

Course description

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a qualification taken over the course of Year 12. It is equivalent to half of a full A2. It is an independent piece of work carried out under the light supervision of a member of staff. You can select a project that complements your other courses, or that extends your knowledge of one subject - maybe a subject that you want to study in more depth in the future. For example, you could write about the influence of the USA on world politics, the right and wrongs of assisited suicide, or make your own clothes or musical instrument.

The aim of the EPQ is to provide you with the freedom to develop skills and to explore an idea that interests you. Taking the EPQ is great for building confidence and broadening horizons and you are free to be creative, practical or academic. Any student entering Year 12 can apply to study the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Applications need to be handed in at the time of enrolment on GCSE Results Day. Should we have too many applications then over-subscription criteria will be applied.
