Hi, I am taking as levels and I'm supposed to choose subjects by now, but I am confused. Currently I'm studying maths, Physics, biology, chemistry, english, ict, arts, mandarin and history.
Which one should I take? Which one can I take with only selfstudy? Which one is useful? I am planning to major in PPE in university.

...you're doing 9 AS levels?

If I were to choose 3 A levels for PPE I'd probably go with maths, history, and economics, but it really depends where your strengths lie; they don't have any formal requirements.

So, you are planning to study and to get a profession in the direction of medicine? if so, I advice you to choose Biology and Chemistry in any case, they are the most suitable subjects for that.

Well PPE stands for Philosophy, Politics and Economics...

So, I would recommend you do:

Mathematics
History
English Literature

Oh, is that so? I was wrong, very wrong then. In this case your recommended subjects were the better choice.

If you want to do PPE, consider doing PPE subjects. Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Choose 2 from them, and then perhaps do 2 facilitating subjects, so History, Maths or English.

for PPE I would advise choosing A Levels surrounding those 3 fields...

P - I would suggest taking Religious Studies (people think it is a "soft" subject, but many of the top Russell Group unis have it in their list of recommended subjects (such as LSE) due to the skills you learn from it, skills that are transferable to most if not all degrees and your future life in general)

P - Government and Politics would probably help here, however this is obviously not necessary. Maybe look at taking History as this can link well

E - Economics would clearly be a good choice, maybe Maths, or Physics if you find it particularly interesting

he uni I want to go asks for 4a*, and to get a scholarship I have a feeling I might need more than that. Do you think adding biology and physics make a difference ?

I don't think anywhere, not even Oxbridge, asks for 4 A*...

What are your GCSE predicted grades? Which subjects do you enjoy the most?
