    I'm a year 12 student currently studying, maths, physics and chemistry. I was originally planning on studying physics at university, but have taken a strong in philosophy (particually the overlap with physics).

    Some universities offer a physics and philosophy degree which looks great. But, if I apply for a straight philosophy degree will I be at a disadvantage considering I don't offer an essay-based subject?

    I'm hoping wider reading and succeeding in these a levels will be fine, right??

    No, you won't be at a disadvantage. Lots of people who do well in philosophy have a maths and science background.
