Hello! I'm from India and I'm very keen to do an Economics based EPQ. However, I don't know how to go about this? How do I register myself for EPQ? I'm currently doing CAIE based A-levels (in yr 12 right now). Please let me know how I can do this and if I can do it in year 13. Is EPQ even allowed for international students?

I think I'm not allowed to do it as an international student, is there any credible substitute i could do instead? Is there any way I can request do an EPQ or something?

Hi there! This reply may not be of any use but maybe check out this link: https://www.oxfordaqaexams.org.uk/subjects/projects/ipq
- The International IPQ is an international version of the UK’s Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Yup, as an international student currently undertaking an EPQ, I can confirm that the EPQ is definitely allowed for international students. Not sure how to self-register though, as I did it through my school.

Thank you so much for your reply. Which board are you studying? AQA or CAIE?


Update: Turns out Cambridge (CAIE) has started offering their own version of EPQ as IPQ! Do you think unis will consider IPQ as a whole qualification?

Wait, what do you mean by that? Sorry haha, I'm kinda confused.
We do different exam boards for different things at my school, so I do Edexcel Math, FM, Econ and AQA Chem & EPQ.

I'm doing the Edexcel EPQ and its through your school as they moderate it and internally assess. You could see if you can enter as a private candidate. IPQ is the same thing, it just means 'international project qualification' i think

You need to ask your school, but if its anything like UK exam boards, then you will need a supervisor and without one you cant do one.
Cambridge Internationals equivalent is the IPQ.

In most cases you are better off just concentrating on your main grades. Occasionally it might be worth doing if they offer a grade reduction, its a highly competitive elite uni or a highly competitive course with interviews.
