Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

At EGS Sixth Form, we offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) to all Year 12 students. The Extended Project helps students develop and apply skills creatively, resulting in a dissertation on a topic of their choice. It is aimed at supporting students with the transition to Higher Education. In addition to their A Levels it is a way to earn extra UCAS points and stand out from the crowd.

It provides opportunities for the development of critical, reflective, problem-solving and independent learning skills through the planning, research and evaluation of a self-selected project.

It is graded A* to E and is a worth slightly more than an AS for UCAS points purposes.
