    Dissertation or artifact?

    How many references did you use?

    Did you receive feedback about what lost you 6 marks?

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Dissertation.

    I used 32 resources overall.

    I didn't get any feedback, but I felt that I rushed my production log towards the end, so this is most likely where I lost marks.

    Give yourself plenty of time!

    How does an EPQ actually get marked? Like what do you get marks for in your dissertation? I've always been confused.

    For my exam board, AQA, you're graded on your ability (or inability) to meet the following assessment objectives:-

    A01 - Manage

    A02 - Use Resources

    A02 - Develop and Realise

    A04 - Review

    Your supervisor marks your EPQ, but yours may get selected by the exam board to be moderated.
