My predicted grades are AAA, but as it’s my 5th option (also applying to medicine) I would love to apply somewhere that would reduce the offer! If anyone knows of any courses, especially in Scotland, I would love some suggestions!

Thanks in Advance!

Hi there, had a look round some unis and can't find a Scottish one that says it reduces for the EPQ right now (there may be some), but I looked at some northern universities for you:

York looks promising: https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergr...s%2C%20Physics.

Liverpool does and has lower requirements anyway: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/un...-requirements/

Newcastle doesn't seem to but has slightly lower entrance requirements (AAA-AAB): https://www.ncl.ac.uk/undergraduate/degrees/b940/

In the south, Southampton definitely does (they are to do with running the EPQ- I believe they began it but not sure).

Hope this helps, good luck!

Just to add, I did a little research on the EPQ and found that it is only offered in England and Wales, which explains why Scottish universities don't seem to prioritize it as Scottish students don't have that opportunity

Just to add onto the previous poster! I applied to Newcastle for Biomed and got offered a lower offer if I got a B in EPQ - just note, this is about 2/3 years ago so they may have changed.

Sheffield also offered to drop the offer a bit if I got an A in EPQ but the same 2/3 year period also applies.
