How I'll learn
You need good organisation skills, an interest in a specific topic and a good standard of written English if you are intending to produce an essay-based project.
How I'll be assessed
The EPQ will set you apart from other people as it demonstrates your willingness to carry out a piece of extended work and demonstrate that you have developed crucial skills for the workplace or further study.
You can move on to university where the skills you have developed on the extended project will help you to succeed on a wide range of courses. Depending on your chosen topic you will have developed skills experience and knowledge useful in the work place.
