A Level Options (2017) for PPE

    • Thread Starter

    I'm looking at doing PPE at uni, and was wondering if you think these A Level choices would be any good?
    I was umming an ahhing about whether to do 3 or 4 A Levels, but if I were to do 3 I'm not sure which one I'd drop. Although music is probably less respected for PPE, I'm working towards my grade 8 trumpet and contribute a lot to the school's music department. (As well as the fact I enjoy it)
    I'm currently predicted 11A*s (8 A*s and 3 8/9s), so I'm currently fairly academically confident. If I find 4 A Levels to be too much, I could always drop one presumably.
    I'd like to hear your thoughts on this - thanks

    Yeah I've read that history A Level is meant to be good for PPE, but I haven't done it GCSE so it's not an option
