The Extended Project and universities
UCAS points and university offers
The Extended Project qualification carries up to 70 UCAS points, depending on what grade you achieve. This can be used towards a points offer from a university (for example, 350 points).
The Extended Project cannot be used against a grade offer (such as AAA), but some universities may offer an alternative for candidates studying the Extended Project (such as ABB instead of AAB, provided that you get an A in your Extended Project qualification). See the university quotes below for examples of this.
Universities are also recognising the Extended Project qualification as a valuable part of a student’s profile on their UCAS application. You can use your Extended Project to show your interest in an area of study at a university interview.
