Missing EPQ Deadline help Watch

    So my EPQ deadline has been set for the Friday of this week (19th February) but I absolutely cannot finish it by then - it's too soon with all the homework I have backed up waiting to be done, and the revision I have to put in for mock exams I am having throughout the month as well (I actually have a Biology mock on Thursday!)

    I was wondering what may/will happen if I miss the EPQ deadline? Is it like an exam where I'll be failed and forced to pay the fees? Or will I just be failed and it'll be left like that. I recently made my university choices after visiting them and no longer need the EPQ for my chosen university, so I'd much rather not concentrate on it and work on my actual subject work instead.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Talk to your teacher. It's not too late for the centre to withdraw you and get a full refund.

    Any offers you have been made are contingent on your completing the qualifications you said you were doing in your application, for the obvious reason that claiming to do a qualification you have no intention of completing is regarded as fraud. If you drop out of your EPQ, regardless of whether it is a condition of your offers or not, then the universities have the right to withdraw their offers as you have changed the terms of the contract unilaterally. You will have to inform them and see what their attitude will be. Consider that carefully, and maybe make some phone calls, before dropping out. They may not care, in which case go ahead and drop out, but they may care and rescind your offers. It's as well to know beforehand.

    Thanks for the big help there, I'll see what I can do and phone around a little - I think my teacher may extend my deadline if I talk sweet enough

    Apart from that, I'll keep going with it bit by bit for now and see if I can get it extended, dropping it would be a last resort!
