Hi,
I'm doing 4 A levels, triple science +maths and want to study medicine.

My school has given up an option to chose from either the EPQ or D of E silver award. Which one should I do?

EPQ. 100%. Much more impressive on a uni application, especially if you do a medicine-related topic. Only do DofE if you already do the sport and skill, and can do volunteering that is relevant to medicine.

EPQ - DoE is a waste of time because everyone does it and ir says nothing special about you.

Btw, its pointless doing 4 A levels. No UK Uni requires more than 3 and you don't get any extra credit for doing more.
You are actually risking all your grades by doing this - especially with an EPQ on top - remember AAA will always look better than ABBB.

Neither. It’s extremely difficult to balance an epq on top of doing 4 A-levels. As stated above, you don’t need 4 A-levels to get into medicine.

So should I rather do 3 A levels + an EQP?
