On UCAS, I put 'English Literature' in the subject field under Extended Project, but on UCAS Track only 'English Literature' appears - it's listed my EPQ as 'Qualification 1' rather than 'Extended Project'.

Since I already take English Lit A Level, it now looks like I'm taking 2 English Lit courses but on different exam boards :confused:

Will unis actually know that 'qualification 1' is the epq?

EPQ should be its own qualificatin 'level 3 extended project', I believe, NOT an A-level. So re-enter it as that, with the title and enter your english lit a-level separately? Maybe it'd help to post a screenshot?

They've already submitted their application.

To the OP, if you actually have submitted it as an A Level, you'll probably need to contact the universities directly because there's no way of changing them once you've submitted your UCAS application.

I entered the qualification as 'Extended Project level 3' on UCAS Apply, with the subject field as 'English Literature', but on UCAS Track it just seems to be called Qualification 1, and the fact that it's an EPQ isn't mentioned at all :s

Here's what I see on UCAS Track:


  • Qualification 1
    • Date taken Aug 2015
    • Centre -----
    • Examining body AQA
    • Subject English Literature
    • Grade


  • Qualification 3
    • Date taken Aug 2015
    • Centre ------
    • Examining body OCR
    • Subject English Literature
    • Grade
    • Module details Title: Unit F663: Drama and Poetry pre-1800 Title: Unit F664: Texts in Time

So the EPQ ('qualification 1') and the A2 Eng Lit ('qualification 3') look like they could both be A Levels in Eng Lit...
I guess I should have put 'EPQ: English Literature' or something in the subject field, but my tutor only said to put English Literature

I don't think I submitted it as an A Level

On UCAS Apply I put this:

Extended Project (level 3)

English Literature 08/2015 AQA



but on UCAS Track it appears as this:


  • Qualification 1
    • Date taken Aug 2015
    • Centre -----
    • Examining body AQA
    • Subject English Literature
    • Grade

Don't worry, I entered it on UCAS the same as you did (under Extended Project) and it appears on Track in the same way as it does on yours. I'm sure universities get more information

Hmm, dw that's how it looks on track. I wonder how unis see it, but no you haven't done anything wrong. It's strange that it doesn't mention EPQ.

That's good to know, thanks

It's annoying how it all looked perfect on Apply and then suddenly it's changed on Track :mad:

I really hope they know it's my EPQ. Why not just show Track as exactly how the universities will see it...

Okay thank you, so do you think there's any need to contact UCAS or the universities?
