I was looking through the 'who got in' section for PPE oxford, and i was looking at the A levels of people who got in, and it seems that everyone who did politics got rejected. this worries me as i intend on doing PPE at oxford and i am doing politiccs a level. should i be worried?

There are many factors that are weighted in the application process so I doubt just because one has an A level in politics that they would be rejected. I think it would be due to their admission test, interview, grades and personal statement. I dont think you should be worried just because you have a politics A level. Could I have the link to the who got in section?

I doubt it was because they took A-level Politics; as above there will be a range of criteria being considered. It may also be there are other external correlations giving rise to that e.g. it may be students who don't take A-level Maths are more likely to take A-level Politics? If that were the case, since 95% of successful applicants to PPE at Oxford have A-level Maths, not having it is probably a surefire way to get rejected pretty quickly...

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
