    My dream is to do PPE at Oxford. However, I know that maths is an essential subject for the most part (at least to year 12), and I'm also extremely passionate about music, so definitely will be choosing that. I'm aware this only leaves two other options.Therefore, I would really appreciate help in choosing the other two options, or if that wouldn't provide enough experience, would I be able to take one out of school without too big a workload.Thank you so much!!(this is my current preference of other subjects, not based on PPE: chemistry, politics, English language, history, economics, French)

    As someone who has applied for music, I really wouldn't recommend taking the subject if PPE at Oxford is your goal.
    I would reccommend you take A2 in Maths, History and English Language/ Politics.
    The good thing about Music is that it's extra-curricular, you can continue your studies out of school. But if you're really passionate about your musical studies like i was you may find you have an epiphany and apply for that instead.
    I was originally going to apply for Medicine -- got the grades, studied for UKCAT, work experience galore before I realised it wasn't for me. My education system is a tad more flexible than yours however so my science-based subjects weren't a disaster to my applications.
    Best of luck in your decision

    Thanks for the advice!! It's true that my real passion is music, and when I said PPE was my dream, becoming a musician is what I really want. However, I know how risky the industry is and I don't know how willing I am to go all out music? any advice for that would be much appreciated too
