You don't need to check with admin tutors hon - you just need to research the uni; their department and their modules. Modules change every year so it's not worth asking the tutor. Just make sure you do your research.(Original post by anon_ymous1)
I hadn't thought of that. I guess I just need to talk to an admissions tutor to sort out what is needed. I'm still unsure about if Econ counts as an essay-writing subject, and about whether Maths+FM+Physics is *way* too specialised.
There is one part of me that is saying that I don't *need* Physics for anything I'm planning, so it's not worth taking it just because I'd be sad to drop it. On the other hand, people have said to me that some people who don't know what to do gravitate towards philosophy and econ, so it is better to do something like Physics if you can. Also, there is more learning material available for philosophy at around the A-level standard than there is for Physics, as far as I can tell. Then again, the Philosophy course sounds really interesting and I would improve my essay-writing... I just seem to be going round in circles. But since PPE is an option it will help when I get the advice of an admissions tutor.
Yeah, I've that people who don't know what they want to do study PPE, and etc. But if you enjoy a subject then I don't see why you shouldn't study it further. Philosophy is a lot different from A-level at uni. I do believe the Philosophy and Religious Studies A-level syllabus is changing for this September so they migh tbe new material on there.
Physics is not needed for a Philosophy or a PPE degree. If you plan to do Politics, Philosophy or Economics at uni then pick either three. I don't see why you should pick Physics over a related/needed A-level subject. Also, normally in 1st year you can pick modules outside your degree. So if you really wanted to, you could pick a physics module at uni anyway (as long as you did maths/further maths and/or physics at A-level).
