EPQ – Extended Project Qualification

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is an independent research project which is worth the equivalent of half an A Level. Alongside your other A Level qualifications, you will have the opportunity to research an academic question that you construct yourself.

From your research, you will then write a mini dissertation to summarise and evaluate your findings. You also have to be able to demonstrate that you have spent 120 hours of work on your EPQ. This will be through an activity log.

Your project can be centred around one of your A Level subjects, or you can investigate a topic outside of your academic studies that can extend your knowledge about an area of interest.
