    Hi
    I am doing chemistry biology and history a levels
    I was wondering whether to do an EPQ or maths AS, as I want to study either law or medicine at university, and was wondering which one would be more beneficial for uni applications?
    Thanks

    Definitely, it is basically half an a level in which you can do a project on whatever the hell you like!

    Universities love this as some of the skills overlap in what you do at uni

    I just submitted my EPQ and honestly it feels so good that I'm done now. I only finished it because I really liked my EPQ topic (Is Eyewitness Testimony reliable?) but I had many friends who dropped it because they either didnt like their topic or they couldnt cope with it.

    I also know that some unis would offer a reduced law offer if you get a certain grade in EPQ. For instance, I have 2 conditional offer for Queen Mary (A*AA or AAAA including A in EPQ). This is probably because my EPQ was relevant to law. (Yes, i applied to read law in this cycle)

    As long you're confident that you can manage it (your other A levels are way important) and have an interesting EPQ topic that relates to law that you really like, then I would say go for it
