EPQ or AS Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have the option of doing as sociology or an EPQ but I'm not sure which one is better to do/will benefit me, I'm currently taking Economics, politics and History

    I think an As will be better. The higher the grade the higher the Ucas points (Are you planing to go to uni?), correct me if I'm wrong but I heard with an EPQ there is only one fixed Ucas point you can get if you pass that is.

    If you find taking an AS more demanding then take an EPQ, (considering your other courses). Personally, I would take the AS sociology it depends on you though.

    An EPQ is worth one and a half ASs.

    Here's the new traffic tables so you can see the points you'll get for each grade so no it's not just a fixed grade for passing it.
    You can do our EPQ on anything you wish as well which is an added bonus
