PPE goes way up if a top university - especially if Oxford. history above sociology, maybe above PP.

is there much difference between PP and PPE if both from a top uni? Would the extra economics make a huge difference do you think?

I was just writing a different post which somewhat relates to this question. The problem is that we might look at 5 year outcomes for graduates as a general thing but no individual is that general. To what extent do top economics graduates do well on average because they chose economics and not history, and to what extent is this success related to very strong maths grades and a focus on financial type jobs? I don't know.

They’re all great ones. However sociology is right at the bottom.
