    What is the difference between a Level 3 EPQ and a Level 2 HPQ?
    The HPQ is considered equivalent to half a GCSE, the EPQ is equivalent to an AS level. The basic idea is the same.

    I am in year 11 at the moment and I have less than a year to complete it. If I am willing to put in the effort, should I do the EPQ or HPQ?

    EPQ on a relevant topic to what you want to apply to uni. It literally took me a weekend to write, easy A* and you can talk about it in uni interviews
