    As the title really.
    An Extended Project Qualification is a qualification equivalent to an AS Level, that involves completing an independent project. With AQA, you can either write a 5000 word essay on a topic of your choice (usually the title is in the form of a question, which you answer in the essay), or write a 1000 word essay and make an artefact, such as a piece of music, sculpture or play. With either format, you also need to give a 10-15 minute presentation, plus complete a Log Book (a document where you write down what you've done so far, what has gone well/badly, what you're going to do next etc).

    I hope that helps! I got an A in my EPQ, so feel free to ask any more questions

    That's great thanks! Do you have to perform the presentation in front of a class or a teacher? I'm quite shy you see :^_^:

    You're welcome!

    Most people do their presentations in front of their class, or a smallish group. I'm really shy too, and I was able to do mine in front of just my supervisor and two of my friends. It was still really nerve wracking for me, but I managed it!
