Does anyone know if EPQ was actually marked this year?Watch
I don't know but I was shocked to open my results and see that I got an E for the EPQ. I worked really hard for it and I chose a topic which I'm passionate about, so to receive that grade feels like I wasted so much time and effort for something I could have easily done a week before the deadline and still get the E.
Luckily I got a C so still a pass but most unis want at least a B for it to lower your offer so it’s really frustrating. If you got an E and worked hard, then they could have maybe be estimated grades. I guess corona means teachers can’t have random peoples EPQs in case it spreads the virus?
Yeah, that's what I thought too, teacher's couldn't possibly tell witch EPQ was worth what grade or at least not in my school because my EPQ teacher was a PE teacher, so he probably had no clue. Either way, I'm glad my uni doesn't consider EPQs when applying.
EPQ was marked internally by your supervisor, and then the EPQ Team internally moderated the projects. We used the same robust process we usually use, with the exceptions that pupils could not be penalised for not having completed presentations. After this process, the Centre Assessed Grades and ranking were submitted to the examination board, where they underwent the same process as the AS and A Levels.
So in short your grade could have been downgraded to an E.
