AQA Baccalaureate and Extended Project Qualification at St Alban's Catholic High School
Extended Studies incorporates the elements of General Studies, Critical Thinking, the
Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and the AQA Baccalaureate. This is an overarching
qualification that recognises the academic achievements of students, including their
enrichment activities which occur outside the classroom.
The EPQ is a component of the AQA Bacc but can also be taken as a standalone
AS Level qualification. Students can choose an area of their own research that comes from
their personal interest, a leisure activity, a subject specific project, a career based project
or community based project. The EPQ allows students to develop into independent
learners, applying research, problem solving and analytical skills to something that they
are passionate about; expertise that universities love.
