    Basically my college is incompetent and have told us we are going to be doing the EPQ since last year, long story short they have decided to pull it because they don't want to spend the money. I have worked for a long time on this and I've put it down on my UCAS form, I had a lot about it in my personal statement and I have alternative grade offers from uni's if i get an A in the EPQ. So i was just wondering if anyone knew if you could independently apply to complete the EPQ?

    No, because it is wholly coursework it is not open to private candidates.

    No it requires someone to monitor and oversee your project, wouldn't work out I'm afraid. They say on the spec it's not for private candidates
