    I'm currently filling in my qualifications on the education section of my application and I've hit a stand-still.
    I have no idea how to enter AS/A Levels as there are so many different options.

    I also need to include the 'Subject' of my EPQ (I presume the topic I did it on) which was horror video games and how they are effective. This sounds very... under-developed, and I need to make it sound a little more serious. I've lost the final title I used in my essay.
    Could somebody please give me suggestions for the subject box for my EPQ?

    Thank you! I would be getting help from my current uni (I'm on foundation) but my tutor is a bit of an arse and hasn't helped with any of my application AT ALL.

    Sorry, have a read of what? And no not yet as I don't go back until Monday. It's the first thing I'll be asking him about and if he hasn't done it by the end of the week I'll have him to blame for no UCAS application :/

    I would have had to sign up for Internal Progression to do that and as I hate my current university (it's even made me question whether I should do animation or not!) I didn't want to stay there any longer than I have to for my foundation

    Had a read of the blog post but it doesn't answer my questions about 1. What I should put for my shortened EPQ title so it seems serious and 2. What option to select for my qualifications.

    start typing as or a level in the qualifications box and it should come up. I dont think your title needs changing particularly, they'll be more concerned with the grade i recon anyway.

    That's the issue - I type in AS Level and the list of options it COULD be is huge, including Advanced Subsidiary, Advanced GCSE, AS, AS Level etc.
