What would be the likelihood of me getting into a top uni (Oxbridge, LSE, UCL or Warwick) for PPE studying Maths Physics and Economics?
I am planning to take a gap year and apply with my achieved grades would this affect my chances? Would 3 A*s guarantee me a place at one of these 4 unis?

You have the grades, but you need to show a real interest in all of the subjects involved in PPE on your personal statement so do essay competitions and online courses to show that you are interested in them. There is no such thing as a ‘guaranteed’ place but make sure you do apply to another less competitive uni, if not 2 and maybe not both UCL and LSE as they are kind of similar. Also to stand a chance at Oxford you need to score highly in the TSA.

thank you so much for the reply. What type of online courses do you mean. Im currently entering an easy competition. Want to do a few more. Would an epq be beneficial?
