    Is it useful to study? Would the experience help me at university or should I just concentrate on a levels?

    It is well respected and is a good intro to uni and can show your unis that you're committed about your subject but its up to you. if you're going to do it, then you have to do it well for it to mean anything.

    The EPQ honestly saved me. Some universities lower the grade requirements if you get an A. For example, my university usually offers AAB but because I got an A in the epq I was accepted with ABB

    Thanks!😊 I was thinking it might be useful due to that and you get tariff points from it. Is it similar to essays at uni?

    Yeah! You can write 5,000 words on what ever you want. Also if you mention it in your personal statement and mention what skills you gained from doing it you're more likely to impress the admissions team. Universities looove the epq as it shows you're able to research, analyse, and produce conclusions (which is especially important when it comes to writing your dissertation in final year).
