i didn’t apply for just ppe eek!
PPE at Oxford Magdalen
Philosophy and Politics at Manchester and QUB
International Relations and Philosophy at St. andrews
PPL (Philosophy Politics and Law) at Warwick
the main reason why i didn’t apply for ppe at every uni was bc my predicted grades are too low and i just don’t like economics that much
predicted AAA in maths further maths and chemistry
i’ve gotten offers from QUB and Manchester !!

Congratulations on the offers. Interesting course choices elsewhere given your A level focus - guessing you fancy a change. Good luck with the others. I hate the waiting.

i know, tbh i originally wanted to go into biochem/chemistry but then i changed to ppe, but it meant i could only apply to unis that didn’t require an essay based subject

Hey congrats on your offers!

I haven't heard back from durham yet, did they send you an email, or was it through UCAS track?

I applied to Collingwood... might be different college to college.

Good luck on the others!
