I want to study PPE in the future, and I'm pretty enthusiastic about Philosophy regardless. I don't know much about Classics but chose it because I was told it was highly respected and interesting. I've read Ancient Political Philosophy and Hesiod but that's about as much independent learning I've done that relates to Classics. I'm not sure how well I'd do in Classics and if I would be able to learn everything, but I'm sure about what I would have to do for Philosophy. Maybe my nerves for Classics are because I haven't started the A-Level yet and I'm overconfident for Philosophy, but I've already read the AS Philosophy content in my spare time before I even knew it was on the spec. So now it's down to which is better for PPE.

Go for whichever one interests you more.

Personally I'd go for Classics, see how I like it for a week or so, and if I don't like it/too hard/bad format,etc. then I'd switch to Philosophy as a safer option.

That sounds like a great idea! Thank you
