    I want to apply for Medicine next year, and need AAA this year (I am reapplying) so I want to remove external pressures like EPQ. Would universities care if I do very badly in the EPQ like get a C or a D, even though in my Bio Chem and Maths I get an AAA?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this.

    Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

    Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses.



    It depends which university you apply for and whether they value the Extended project or not. Cambridge for example think highly of the Extended Project.

    EPQ shouldn't even be having a negative impact on exams.

    Extended project should be taken as seriously as any other A level subject. It could even save you if you get a good grade in that, but don't do so well in your other subjects. Just make sure your Extended project is relevant to your interests and furture ambitions and you should be fine!
