Extended Project Qualification

Course Title: AQA EPQ (Level 3)

Grading: A*-G

Course Overview: (What will students learn?)

EPQ students will learn to:

  • Identify, design, plan and complete an individual project, applying a range of organisational skills and strategies to meet agreed objectives
  • Select and use a range of skills, solve problems, take decisions critically, creatively and flexibly, to achieve planned outcomes
  • Obtain, critically select and use information from a range of sources; analyse data, apply it relevantly and demonstrate understanding of any appropriate linkages, connections and complexities of the topic
  • Evaluate outcomes both in relation to agreed objectives and own learning and performance. Select and use a range of communication skills and media to present evidenced outcomes and conclusions in appropriate format

External Assessment:

Students will complete one piece of written coursework which is 100% of the EPQ qualification. The EPQ can be written about a topic of the student’s choice, agreed upon with their supervisor. The coursework is around 5000 words, and is made up of extensive research and analysis about a chosen topic. The process allows students to make a detailed and constructed evaluation based on what they have found. The EPQ process allows students to prepare for further education, and encourages wider research for other A-Level subjects.
