should i do an epq or not?Watch
If i do epq, does my chances of getting into a university (i really want to get into LSE) increase??
The way I see it, you have an opportunity to work on a weak area now and work on it early than later.
I am assuming you like problem solving and numbers since you seem to have chosen such a highly quantitative combination of subjects.
You just need to realise if you can balance those workloads with an EPQ - In my opinion - a solid schedule and as long as you stick to it, then undertaking an EPQ is entirely possible. Do you have project ideas for your EPQ? Is there something you are particularly passionate about? If you're not passionate and just doing it for the sake of it then this will lead to a bad plan and bad outcome.
It may contribute to getting into a better university - maybe not the EPQ itself but being able to demonstrate your ability to manage and undertake large workloads simultaneously. If the EPQ is related to the degree you wish to undertake at LSE then yes, it can contribute with a demonstration of your passion in that course.
Best of luck
