Copyright © 2010 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. How is EPQ different? A Student’s View ‘No matter how good your teachers are and how much they want you to have your own ideas, anything you do for A-levels comes from them’. ‘The Extended Project allowed me to research my own project and to own my own ideas because it made me explore the steps that were leading me to my conclusions.’ http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk

Copyright © 2010 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. A Supervisor’s View ‘The EPQ offers students a real opportunity to not only develop the skills that they will need when they move on from college to either work or university, such as communicating their ideas to others and independent research, but also gives them a chance to pursue a topic outside their taught courses that they are really passionate about. I would have loved to have had the chance to do something similar when I was doing my A-levels.’ http://www.winstanley.ac.uk

Copyright © 2010 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. What is EPQ Worth to Higher Education? We value the skills of research and independent learning that the Extended Project is designed to develop. We welcome applications from students offering the Extended Project alongside A levels. As the Extended Project is optional it is not a requirement for application. If you offer an Extended Project, it will be taken into account. Your offer may be varied as a result, in recognition of the level of study skills you will have developed. University of Newcastle
Copyright © 2010 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. What is EPQ Worth to Employers? One large employer states that through activities such as the Extended Project, students will develop their capabilities in terms of problem solving, critical analysis, team working and communications, as well as high standards of Maths and English – all of which are highly prized by employers.
