Extended Project Qualification AQA (7993)
The Extended Project will develop and extend from one or more of your study areas and/ or from an area of personal interest or activity outside your main programme of study. It will be based on a topic chosen by you and agreed as appropriate by your mentor.
You will be taught the necessary skills in order to complete an extended project, working closely with a specialist mentor. You will then work autonomously and
independently to complete your project. After planning, researching and carrying out your project you will deliver a presentation to a non-specialist audience, a real opportunity to turn the tables on your teachers.
Having completed an EPQ, you will have applied a range of organisational skills and strategies to meet your objectives and obtained, critically selected and used information from a range of sources.
You will have shown that you can analyse data, applying it relevantly, and displayed a range of skills valued by universities and employers, including problem-solving, critical decision-making, communication skills, creatively and flexibly, to achieve planned outcomes. Importantly, you will learn to evaluate outcomes both in relation to your project and in terms of reflecting on your own learning and performance.
This project, and the planning, log and evaluation of it, will form the evidence on which you will be graded and gain the qualification, which is worth half an A-level.
