    Hello, my fellow students,

    I am going to start my Scottish Highers next year, and accompanying that, I would also like to start my Wider reading in PPE to apply for Oxford 2018 entry. Are there any good introductory texts for this subject that are both academic and informational in my intended subject?

    Hello, my fellow students,

    I am going to start my Scottish Highers next year, and accompanying that, I would also like to start my Wider reading in PPE to apply for Oxford 2018 entry. Are there any good introductory texts for this subject that are both easier to read and impressive in the eyes of an Oxford professor?
    For politics I'd definitely recommend a couple of introduction to political philosophy type books. Can't remember the exact names, but they're by Adam Swift and Jonathan Wolf. Really good for getting you thinking beyond A level, but without being too advanced.

    Don't read stuff cause you think it will impress tutors, because they are impressed when you have developed an interest in an area yourself. But at interviews I did ask for book recommendations, and they mentioned both those books.

    You should look through colleges' page also bc they have different reading list. But that one is the mandatory one I suppose.
