PPE at oxford 2017 entry

    • Thread Starter

    I'm hoping to study PPE at oxford next year and would just like some feed back on my chances of getting in.

    Physics A*
    Maths A
    Chemistry A
    English language A
    English literature B
    Biology B
    Geography B

    -I moved school during this year which somewhat disrupted my education and i will include this on my PS

    Im currently studying; maths, physics and economics

    AS's :

    Maths A (245 UMS)

    Im sitting the whole of econ and physics next year and im pretty i will achieve AAA (entry requirements) at the least.


    I won't lie, your GCSE's are quite significantly below what you'd expect of an Oxford PPE applicant; most will be applying with at least 10 A/A* grades.

    Well done on your A in AS maths, thats a good start. But, also bear in mind that many other applicants will be applying with 4+ A levels and an EPQ.

    Definitely still apply, but you'll need a strong personal statement and an excellent result in the TSA.

    Good luck!
