    I am doing A-Levels intending on getting an advanced apprentiship following this. I have been getting stressed by the work load without the EPQ so I have dropped it. I have read that you don't need an EPQ to got to university. Is this true? Even though I'm not going to university post 18 I might go later on life such as when I'm 50 for example.

    Thanks for any responses.

    You do not need an EPQ to go to university, most students don't have it. An EPQ can be a good thing to do if you have the time but it's absolutely not essential and it's nowhere near as important as your A Levels.

    Thank You so much! I'm still unsure about whether or not I want to go to University after sixth form but I do know that I can't cope with EPQ and it's causing me issues. Thanks so much! I

    Thank You! xx I was getting really stressed out as I felt I couldn't cope with my subject and EPQ but now since I've dropped EPQ I have four hours on Wednesday to do work for other subjects!
