Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (7993)

Our Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) specification has been updated for teaching from September 2020, with first assessment in May 2021. We've updated the specification to help you manage project qualifications in your school and ensure your students are prepared for their EPQ.

Our EPQ has proved to be popular with students and teachers alike. It provides an opportunity for students to extend their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus, stand out and prepare for university or their future career. It can also be used to earn extra UCAS points.

Email us with your name, email address and school details to tell us you're planning to offer the Extended Project Qualification and we'll allocate you a named Project Adviser and provide you with ongoing support and resources.
