Why all students today should take the EPQ
UK universities consider applicants' overall profiles, not just their A Level grades 

One of the few official ways for students to improve their application profiles
• Only official way for universities to lower their A Level admissions requirement
International students even more need to demonstrate their abilities beyond test scores, and that they can conduct independent research
What is the EPQ?
EPQ is a research qualification awarding UCAS points worth half an A Level. Students complete a research paper or create an original work, such as a design, artwork, computer or robotics programme, etc. All UK universities look favourably upon an EPQ and many lower their A Level requirements for students with an EPQ.
Our UK-based Oxbridge EPQ teaching team has a proven track record helping students achieve high EPQ grades
Our EPQ Coordinator has guided over 95% of her students to achieving A* or A 
All our students are mentored one-on-one by Oxbridge tutors, with specific expertise in the project subject
