Wilson's recognised for outstanding scholarship
ALONGSIDE the first class A Level results from the class of 2018, we are thrilled to share the equally excellent results from our EPQ students. The EPQ, or Extended Project Qualification, is a rigorous academic qualification that students take alongside the subjects that they are studying in school. They are expected to produce a 5,000 word essay which evaluates a topic in an academic field of interest. Alongside this, they must keep an extensive log reflecting on the processes of their work, and give a presentation to an audience of their peers. We think this is a hugely valuable qualification as it not only allows them to explore their chosen degree subject in greater depth, but also teaches them some of the academic skills, such as referencing and engaging with critics, that they require in their studies at university.
This year we had 40 students who undertook the qualification and we are delighted that they were recognised for their hard work with 15 of the students receiving an A grade, and 25 students receiving an A*. A particular mention must go to the five students who received full marks for their work: Oliver, Alexander, Sajed, Anthony and Arkaprabha. We had a wide range of topics covered with such diverse titles as: "Do behavioural insights and the provision of machine-readable data to consumers rectify failure in the British domestic energy market to a large degree, or are methods of intervention not based on behavioural insights superior?"; "Was the Battle of Lepanto caused more by the Role of Individuals, or by Geographic and Socioeconomic Determinism?" and "Are pharmaceutical treatments or psychotherapies more effective in the treatment of depression?".
The current Year 13 EPQ students will be giving their presentations over the next few weeks, and the Year 12s will have the opportunity to opt to complete an EPQ later this term. We look forward to their continued success!
