A lot of universities ignore them completely - a very few make an offer that includes something like "an A in EPQ" - there actual value is in a) a student learning to actually research and run a project themselves and b) something to talk about at interview. To be clear DS1 didn't do one and it made not one jot of difference to his Medical application at all.

Some schools still seem to be telling students they are equal to one A level - they aren't - and are only reall acceptable in addition to 3 A levels.

The university in which she is interested have already advised that they don't really look at EPQ unless it essentially comes down to a tie break type situation between two otherwise equally matched candidates. They insist on 3 full A levels.

It would be a way of allowing some time on the subject if she can't get the A level at all but I think we would likely change schools before going down that route.
