I just received an A in EPQ today. I was hoping to get an A* because I spent a long time and put hard work into it. I won't complain as an A is more than enough but is there a big difference in getting an A or A*? I understand that there is a difference in the UCAS points that you can achieve with a +4 difference of 28-24, but does universities care all that much by the margin?

On specification terms, I wouldn't know the differences between an A and A* because it seems like quite a small margin between the two.
Most Universities I have seen who look at EPQs, will reduce your offer by 1 grade if you get at least an A so in that regard you should be fine.
