I’ve heard that if you get an A or above in your EPQ unis lower their grade requirement for you. Is this true? Also does this apply to all unis or is it just a select few. Eg Imperial, Loughborough, Manchester

They won’t lower the requirement but it will aid your application. Maybe pick you over someone else, consider you if your grades are a little lower etc.

Some unis may, but it is not done universally. Each uni decides its own policy.

Okay so top unis expect better grades and a higher grade for EPQ and probably won’t lower the grade requirements?

It depends on the uni tbh, but usually they won’t lower them. They might be more lenient though

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
