I have been struggling to keep up with my A2s because of EPQ! I know this because ever since i picked up EPQ in november, my grades have started to drop. In the last chemistry mock i went from an A to a C. I'm not entirely blaming it on EPQ, but the number of hours I'm spending on research is insane i could be using that time to revise!!!
Was anyone else in the same situation? should i drop it? The thing is I'm trying to rack up over 500 UCAS points to improve my chance of getting into barts for medicine, who count UCAS points and UKCAT in a 50/50 weighting. So, without, EPQ i can only manage 480 points in total. This means I'd have to get around 790 for my ukcat!
I'm struggling to come to a decision
EDIT: If anyone is confused, im taking a gap year and applying for medicine.
should i drop EPQ? watch

I would drop it, although EPq is good to have, a levels are more important! If you fail your Alevels but get a good EPq it doesn't really help! Check into the courses you wanna do to see if they even count EPq! Cos 2 of mine didn't x
