    At the 6th Form I'm applying to you can choose between completing an AS level or doing the EPQ. If I was to choose to do an AS it would be in Art. Which option would be more valuable in terms of university applications?

    I would say EPQ is more valuable, as there are many skills you can gain from it, which you can subsequently put on your Personal Statement. Not many get the chance to do an EPQ so doing it would really make you stand out. However, it certainly requires a lot of time, but that might not be so bad if you're doing it in Year 12 (I've just got the presentation left for mine and it took up a lot of my valuable Year 13 time). The EPQ should all be finished before February next year too, and you have control over what grade you get for it, whereas with an AS-level, you don't have as much control.
