Extended Project Qualification at JMF6-Abingdon
Developing the whole person is central to the ethos of JMF6-Abingdon. The skills that are developed by working towards the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) are a vital part of this provision. This is a qualification that provides our students with the following values:
•Transferrable Skills valuable for all applications
•Leads to reduced offers
•Increases chances of offer acceptance flexibility
•Pride at being an expert
The EPQ is available to all students starting JMF6. Students will identify a subject of interest to them, be supported in framing an investigating question, receive guidance on research and presentation techniques and then submit an end product. As well as carrying UCAS points equivalent to half an A-Level, the skills developed are highly rated by admissions tutors (particularly for Russell Group and Oxbridge) and employers.
