I am currently going to study Maths, Further maths and Physics at A-Level for my second year at sixth form but i was told that an EPQ would also be worth taking.
I plan to apply to Oxford this year doing a Mathematics degree but i was wondering how useful an EPQ would actually be since i feel like i should just concentrate on doing my A-level subjects as well as the MAT and STEP papers.
Any comments appreciated!
How useful is an EPQ for a maths degree? watch

Dont do it.

Just in case you're unaware, you don't have to do STEP for Oxford.
(It is good to do, though, insofar that it's a lot closer in style and difficulty to university maths than A-level)Last edited by StrangeBanana; 07-09-2016 at 13:02.

See if you can do an extra maths course or something, would probably be more useful than an EPQ
