EPQ worth it?Watch
Is an EPQ worth taking, when do we start writing an EPQ if we choose to? how is it graded and who grades it?
Maybe if its competitive and you feel you have the time to do one so you can stand out a little more with your application.
Maybe if you want to learn some more skills to do with writing larger compositions.
Not if you arent in control and confident with your A level grades.
Not if you dont have the time.
You can write it during Y12 or beginning of Y13. It is marked by your assigned EPQ supervisor. Some people are assigned topics others get to choose from a 5000 word essay or an artefact.
Given the choice I would rather have one extra grade on the main A levels.
