Does anyone know anything about the Extended Projects offered in place of ASs? My college is offering four (Global Perspectives, Geographical Investigations, Social Science and a Science one) and I'm considering taking one. All I've been told is that they're worth the same as an AS in terms of UMS, and it's an independent piece of research on pretty much any topic within the project we choose to follow.
Are these new, or have they been around for a while and has anyone else taken one? Are they worth doing?
oh and Russell group unis love the extended project!
DON'T DO IT!! Well obviously it's up to you and i suppose universities like them but i wish i'd just done an independent research project and told universities about that rather than take the actual qualification. I hate the way you have to write all your planning down in such a rigid way and you're obviously doing it to please the examiner. It's too much like an A level in my opinion because you have to stick to assessment objectives so much.
