It is basically a project on anything that you want to research about. You research a particular topic and write an essay about it. Some may want to produce something e.g. a film, a model, etc. It is the equivalent of an AS level. My exam board was AQA, dunno if it's the same for all EPQ (expended projects). You should check out the website.

You don't have to take an exam or anything, but at the end of it you have to present your project to an external audience. It's really open ended as well. Like what Amba said, I'm making a film on quite a depressing topic, and when I've finished I'm going to have to present it together with a talk or an essay. So far its been great fun! However I wouldn't just do it for the qualification, people who were doing it for that so far have pretty much all dropped out now.
