Hey everyone - this is a really fantastic thread, I'm in awe of the comprehensiveness of it! So many pages...I think it would take me the best part of a week to read through all of it lol
Anyway, I'm Year 11 and choosing my A-levels. I'm predicted all As and A*s and I'm really interested in doing PPE at university - politics, economics and philosophy are all such intriguing subjects (is it okay to have mere curiousity at the moment? I know very little about philosophy and economic theory at this present point in my life
although I plan to change this!) PPE at Oxford would therefore be a dream.
Basically, I'm definitely doing three A-levels that I like and am good at: Maths, English Literature and History.
I'm stuck on my last choice - it's a slog-out between Chemistry, Economics, German or Further Maths. I wouldn't mind doing any of these as my fourth, although I'm slightly leaning towards Chemistry. But I'm worried that not having Economics might disadvantage me when I get to UCAS and the interviews, especially if I want to do PPE. How necessary is it, and is Chemistry in any way a better option for such an application? Which subjects do you think make the most sensible/robust/most interesting/best combination?
In the meanwhile I'm off to practise articulating my opinions lol. From what I've read it seems to be required...!
Thanks in advance for any help
It would be massively appreciated!
