    Does anyone here know what uni's accept the Extended Project (EPQ) as a qualification ?

    Unis that operate a UCAS points system will see them as points; however, in general it's not something that most would accept in place of an A level, more on top of your A Levels to give you something to put on your PS and to show that you're passionate and motivated to read and research your subject outside the constraints of your course.

    As far as I'm aware, no universities count the EPQ as an AS-equivalent. As far as I'm aware, the EPQ fulfils UCL's "fourth pass at AS Level" requirement. Birmingham gives out alternative offers for people taking the EPQ, e.g. AAA or AAB with an A in your EPQ (as an extra). In all of these cases, the EPQ only counts if it's taken in addition to 3 A levels.
