okay good stuff, thanks for clearing that up for me
You take 2 papers out of P, P & S and then choose two option ones. So you can do alll three PPS papers and pick one other one, but you don't have to. I am not doing politics so i can't help you on that front... for psychology I would just look at some youtube lectures on the topic. There is no need to do too much reading before starting :P
I'm going to be studying PPS at Cambridge this October. You seem like the guy with all the answers on the PPS thread, so just a couple of q's for you if you don't mind.
I've read contradicting things in terms of what you actually study during the first year. I've heard you have to do a paper in each of the 3 core subjects then you choose an additional paper. Then I've also heard you can do just 2 papers in the core subjects then choose 2 others. What is the actual process?
Also I am currently on my gap year so will be coming to Cambridge a fair bit rusty. So are there any books other than those from the reading list that you think I'd benefit from to prepare me? (preferably concrete and simple ones to get a base knowledge of politics and psychology as I didn't take these for A-level)
Thanks in advance
