Reading PPE at Oxford has been a dream of mine. My GCSEs results are 1A*, 3As and 6Bs. Relative to the performance at my school, these results are quite bad. I am however predicted 2A* (poltics and history), 1A (economics) and a B (maths) for A level. Alongside this, I have read multiple books surrounding the degree from the Wealth of Nations to the basics of philosophy. Furthermore, I'll be volunteering for my local MP, working alongside a government whip in his office at Westminster and going to Nepal to build a school for those in need. Should I take the risk of waiting a year and applying (seeing that my teachers won't let me apply to Oxford now), or should I not bother and go to another uni?
