    Trust me it really won't help your application to do two of them, it just means you'll have less time to revise for your actual exams. One is fine.

    I agree with JRKinder, Two is a bit useless as only a small minority of universities base their offers on UCAS points.

    You can do as many as you want I think, but seeing as how you have actual exams to prepare for, I think it's a waste of time.

    Stands for 'Extended Project Qualification', no it isn't an A level but (points-wise) is 'equivalent' to half an A level. I put that in quotation marks because generally when something is referred to as an equivalent in real terms it isn't. They would much rather you have an additional A level than two EPQs, for example.

    Basically you take a topic of your choice (but usually you will want to make it relevant to your future degree) and research about the topic to produce a report that can be from 2000-5000ish words. If it's just the report then you'll want it to be on the upper bound in length, but if say you also produce a physical model for an arts&design related project then you can get away with writing less.

    Fair enough, it would help in my case as I want to apply to Barts and they look directly at UCAS points for selection for interview but yes I undrstand it'll mean more work

    I don't think you can do two at the same time, in much the same way as it's not possible to take two of the same A-level (e.g. you can't enter to do two History A-levels) at one time.
