Epq, should i drop itWatch
- academic writing skills
- exploring your interests
- (sometimes) getting a lower offer, and/or consideration if you miss your offer
it doesn't provide much material help for any particular degree since degrees are taught for a reason and whatever you research as an A level student won't be up to that standard, so if you want to stick it out it ought to be for its own sake and because you enjoy it
Ok I'll be frank with you, it's not worth your time. It's alot of really stressful effort and time that could be spent on your actual studies or your general well being. An EPQ is no little feat and requires alot of effort for what I would say was minimal gains. I really stressed myself out over my EPQ and was the same as you changing my question and I struggled to find a focus. It consumed so much of my time. I was really happy to get a top mark on it in the end though! However this gained Mme nothing in my application. I applied for geography and my EPQ was on a geography based subject of sustainable packaging. Not a single one of my unis lowered grades for me and to be honest I doubt it will give me any special consideration. I was really proud of myself but looking back it wasn't really worth the time and stress. That's just my experience though.
