    Hi all

    Just wondering what is the likelihood of being granted a switch from Economics and Management to PPE once at Oxford, I have an E&M interview coming up and yes, I am inherently interested in Economics, before you say I have applied for the wrong course.

    The reason I ask is because I have read PPE is a lot more essay based and also the Politics aspect is extremely appealing to me. Who knows I might not (odds are I won't) get a place, just something I'd consider if I did get in.

    Thanks, any feedback would be appreciated.



    tl;dr E&M interview, if accepted could I change to PPE

    It's possible to switch between subjects post-acceptance, although you may be required to undertake additional tests/ interviews. However, there's no uniform policy - some colleges are happy to let people switch in the first term, some make students apply afresh in the next cycle and come up again the next year.

    I don't do E&M or PPE, but I'm not necessarily convinced that PPE is more essay-based (assuming you don't drop Economics). I've been told that Management is very much essay based, and you can take up to 5 Management papers for Finals. In fact, judging by the examination papers online, quite a few of the Economics papers are essay based too (eg International Economics). However, if Politics is what genuinely appeals to you, a switch may be a good idea.

    Hi I'm thinking of perhaps applying for E&M next year at Oxford. I was wondering what your stats (GCSE and AS grades) were?
