Im in year 12 so have just started my a levels. I am currently taking maths, bio, chem and physics. My aim is to do dentistry at university. I have heard a couple of my mates from different schools are doing the EPQ because they say it looks good for unis.
Is this true? Should i take it? Also how much extra work is it?
Is the EPQ worth taking?? Watch

It shows commitment to your aspirations, and you can talk about it in interviews/ personal statements, however you're doing 4 demanding subjects so commitment to the EPQ may be a bit hard for you. If you think you can juggle the workload, then go for it.

I do 3 subjects and regret taking the EPQ. I try and tell people it's not very good but I suppose you don't have to listen.
I found the EPQ more demanding than my subjects and it, from my experience, demands more than what your bog standard AS+A2 subject demands. If you think of it this way: You'd rather work on 4 subjects really hard and get 4 A*'s than struggle with all 4 and an EPQ, just my opinion
