The Extended Project Qualification is available for those interested in extending their research and writing skills in addition to their A Levels. You will produce a dissertation or create an artefact or plan an activity in a subject of your choice, complete a project plan, undertake primary and secondary research and give a presentation of your project at the end. You will have a project supervisor with whom you will liaise during the project and who will assess your final evidence.
