    I'd suggest doing PPE at Oxford, simply because it's Oxford. The implications that alone has on career prospects is amazing. Also, I'm sure the courses are similar enough that it wouldn't make much difference. Unless you want to be in the city, go Oxford.
    Thing is LSE doesn't seem to have any worse prospects, the course is more interesting (much more applied phil and econ with a greater degree of mathematical modelling and no politics), and London is really alluring. I think it's best for me, but rejecting Oxford is not a decision that can be made with light heartedly.

    Yeah Once you know the rules it's just applying them, and you know exactly what the exam questions are asking for!

    In Bio you can give a factually correct answer to the question, but then get marked wrong because they want a 'different right answer'. You literally get exam papers with identical questions but different answers!

    And Chemistry is just plain hard haha

    If that's the case, then choose the course you want.

    This is a terrible tip, but literally all I can say is do a crap load of past paper questions! Then you'll know the 7 or so types of question that always come up

    That is probably the best thing tbh, but not really viable when you're pressed for time. What exam board are you on, out of curiosity?
