What is the extended project? I've heard of it, don't know what it's about though.
The Extended PRoject is a qualification akin to Key Skills. It is a Level Three Key Skill and is offered under AQA and Edexcel (I don't think any of the other boards do it, but don't quote me).
Edexcel it tends to be more science based, AQA you can do a project on anything!! If you click on my link above, there are examples of the variety of things you can do.
It's a research-based project, supposedly similar to the kind you will do at University (although obviously I haven't been there yet so wouldn't know!). Universities supposedly like this for this reason.
You can either produce a performance, a product or an essay, the theme/topic of which can be anything you are interested in, as long as you don't cover it in your A-Level syllabi.
There are new similar qualifications, the Higher Project and the Foundation Project, that are now being offered, after the success of the Extended Project at A-Level, to younger students too.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! I've just completed mine, and am a mentor for both Extended Project and the Higher Project at my College, which last year was the top state college for the extended project (and A-Level results!) so we're pretty qualified on the subject!!!!
