As far as I know Cambridge don't offer it - they do separate degrees in Social and Political Sciences, and Economics. Correct me if i'm wrong.

You are right, for "PPE", Oxford has it and Cam doesn't.

I didn't know that, I thought they both did. Ignore my little list.

For a typical uni that is good and offers PPE:

Realistically: A's, and B's at GCSE

A's and B's at A-Level.

For Oxford, Realistically:

I would say A*'s/A's/odd B at GCSE, and All A's at A-Level, maybe one B at AS, perhaps. (If it isn't important to course)

They are the only ones I know of, there could be more but with different titles.

For all of them I can guess you'd need at least AAB although maybe not with Hull. It's very competitive.

You need AAB for Ox, War, and York. Perhaps you'd get Durham with ABB. Exeter, Manchester, Essex with BBB.

Meh. The vast majority of those who get in will be able to do AAA in their sleep. That said, AAB is the standard offer, and I would think it likely that they wouldn't see AAB as a problem if someone did really well at interview.

York is surely better than Warwick for PPE? I hear people rave about York's reputation for PPE. Often cited as beating Oxford in some areas.

York's PEP course is more established than Warwick's (hardly suprising considering Warwick's PPE course doesn't actually start till next) year, yes. However, Warwick has a very good reputation in all of the three individual branches and overall so I wouldn't be surprised if their new PPE course proves to be very successful.

Wot he said.

If I knew the definitive answer to the PPE at York or Warwick question, I wouldn't be still spending so much time on this forum...

Surely they're about the same, I would favour Warwick though.
