Home-educated Students – The Project Qualification

GroundMark Learning are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Tutors & Exams to be able to offer the Edexcel Project Qualification to Home-educated Students.
The Project Qualification is highly valued by universities as it demonstrates independent learning and research. This is a key strength of Home-educated Students.
It is offered as a Level 2 Higher Project Qualification (HPQ) and Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Level 2 Higher Project Qualification (HPQ)
• Worth half a GCSE
• 2000 word research dissertation on a topic of the students choice so they can pick something that they like and are interested in.
• Ideal for Year9/ Year 10 students to avoid clashing with major GCSE year.
• Many Home-educated students attend college/school after their GCSEs so a useful way to show interest in a particular subject area.
• Many high performing schools do the Project so someone looking to join a sixth form could benefit from completing the HPQ.

Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
• Worth half an A Level
• 5000 word research dissertation on a topic of the students choice.
• Highly valued by universities
• Worth up to 28 UCAS points
• Universities will usually offer a grade reduction on the basis of a good EPQ (eg instead of AAA they will ask for AAB)

All-inclusive Package

We are able offer an all-inclusive package for both the HPQ and the EPQ, which includes:

• Supervision and guidance
• Access to GroundMark Learning’s learning platform for access to additional guidance and support
