Epq help

I don’t even know what this question is tbh,
To get into the Uni of Bath for architecture (my dream uni) I need to get A*AA…BUT if I get at least an A on my EPQ it gets lowered to A*AB.
I’m predicted an A*A*B which would be fine if I’d gotten good marks in my EPQ…however yesterday I’d had a 5 hour breakdown over getting a 36/50 (likely not an A)
This is the mark after just the internal examination and there’s still an external examination which could change the grade…could I use bribery or blackmail or literally anything for my grade to go up a couple of marks or do I just have to accept that life is hard…

External moderation will only move it up or down one or two marks, and in most cases it stays the same.

Blackmail/slander won't get you anywhere.

If you think that there's been an error in how the marking grid was applied, then you can ask your school for a copy of the marking grid and evaluate it against your own project. If you think you've got a good case then you can send an appeal to your EPQ lead.

Lydia, breathe

could I use bribery or blackmail? - No
Is it clear to you why your EPQ achieved 36 marks?

Secondly, what is your B subject currently? There is time for you to do the best that you can on that.

Third, while architecture is competitive, it's not crazily so. Near miss offers (where you are close to the offer requirements on results day and the institution let you in anyway) are a thing.

The time for breakdowns is not now - now let's getcha head in the game
