About to send off my ucas application and tailored my personal statement to PPE, found the UCL EISPS course and really like the sound of it as i want a more international grounding. my ps can easily be adapted as phil poand econ can be taken as modules in isps. just wanted to know if the reputation of isps at ucl compared to ppe, my ultimate career goal is for the UN development programme, (slightly unrealistic i know) i don’t particularly want to be a politician but i’m interested in global development and policy so politics plays apart. i take spanish maths and psychology a level predicted A*A*A
also it’s mid november and still haven’t sent my application off does that look bad?
also i know i haven’t even sent off my application but any advice on what the TSA at ucl is like / interview? do i need prior knowledge of ppe? or history etc?

You know PPE at UCL is one of the most competitive PPE courses out there, even more so than Oxford in some years, I'm pretty sure the UCL PPE is more maths heavy too so if you feel like you can ace some hard maths questions go for PPE otherwise the other.
