    Hello , so my teacher suggested that I should do EPQ instead of AS level (mostly because the AS i wanted got cancelled), as it is 'highly rated by universities' .

    I am wondering whether doing this is truly a good idea, and just how much freedom we have with it.
    Is it limited to writing an essay or may it be something ofmore creative value? For example, I really love creating writing and am currently planning/working in several 'novels' - would I be able to write a short novella for my EPQ?

    The other A levels that I am planning to do are economics, english lit and computing.

    Any help would be appreciated ^^

    Have a look at https://getrevising.co.uk/files/page...ity%20Pack.pdf and http://www.oraprep.com/complete-guide-epq/

    What you're talking about is an EPQ based around an "artifact" - so instead of a research project you create something to a brief. You'll still need to produce a 1,000 word report on how the project went and a presentation summing up what happened.

    DO you have any thoughts on what you'd like to apply for at university?
