Should I do an EPQ or not??Watch
Research skills gained from the EPQ will help you at Uni. You can refer to the Extended Project in your UCAS personal statement and interviews to demonstrate some of the qualities that universities are looking for. Some Universities lower their entry requirements for the EPQ and if you have to go through clearing it might be the thing that differentiates you from a candidate with the same A-level grades. If the course uses UCAS tariff points then the EPQ contributes to this.
