This report presents findings from an analysis of the variability over time in the relationships between grade outcomes of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and other variables (including GCSE grades) that could potentially influence students’ performance on EPQ.

It involved analysis of data extracted from the National Pupil Database (NPD) from 2009 to 2016.

Findings indicate that there might have been modest grade inflation in EPQ grade outcomes, particularly since 2014.
