EPQ :0 is it considered for KCL?

Hey guyssss

I know that both schools mention that the EPQ isn’t considered at any point during the application process, BUT do you think it would give me an edge over other students if I mentioned it and how it relates to my course in my personal statement?

Thanksss
I mean it's always something good to put into your personal statement as you can also mention the transferrable skills that it helps you develop e.g. independent research, public speaking, time management, organisation, critical analysis/evaluation of data etc. I did and EPQ and I'm currently at KCL. Tbh, even if it didn't give you any advantage whatsoever (and I don't believe this is true btw), I still think that it's quite a valuable experience since having done the EPQ has helped me a lot at uni as I already knew how to write an academic essay, the best way of planning it etc., and how to reference which saved me a lot of time with some of my coursework.

Anyway, good luck :smile:
