Hi I’m applying PPE at Oxford.

I was wondering if a poor performance in section 1 could be compensated by a strong section 2 essay. Or is the section 1 really the most important thing I should be focusing on?

I'm also applying for PPE at Oxford this year, and I think that a good score for us will have to entail a balance of decent section 1 and 2 performance, rather than just really strong in one and weak in the other.

To be honest, the section 2 essay seems to be mainly about structure based on what previous applicants have said; it's quite difficult to write a fantastic essay in the 30 min we are given, so I would focus your practice on mainly the first section.

Section one score is far more important.
