"This fills a previous gap in published support for this qualification.  It helps teachers to solve the problem of supporting students to achieve high grades and development of key skills, whilst encouraging them to be independent as the qualification requires.  With universities now offering lower offers for those predicted a high grade in EPQ, schools are likely to really value this this publication."
