- ESPS is very competitive
- I know of at least 2 people this year who declined Oxbridge offers to do it
- ESPS is not very much like SPS at all; it's more like PPE though it's not that much like that either (SPS - Politics, Psychology and Sociology; PPE - Politics, Philosophy and Economics; ESPS - Politics, History, Philosophy, International Relations and Law, and various [other] later specialisms. And a language, which entails some literature/culture as well.)
- I'd also love to know by what standard PPE per se is harder than ESPS. I don't imagine juggling 6 different disciplines at undergraduate level is particularly easy. Though you might say the Oxbridge workload is just greater in general?
- This particular course has a very high proportion of international students, I don't know if it makes much difference
- Comparatively - UCL will use the TSA and a not-necessarily-horribly-taxing interview (though I was asked a fair few difficult questions, my Cambridge interviews were conspicuously harder). Oxford will use the Oxford TSA (I think for PPE) and quite a few very taxing interviews. Whether this indicates a difference in the difficulty of "getting in" I don't think one can say
- Good luck.
