Excellent Thread London Prophet Good Job Mate,
Had a question to ask you, reading the thread as you said 'PPE attracts the brightest pupils' and i'll explain the dilemma i'm facing with this;
- Basically i have just finished my A-levels and am predicted AAAaa (with the last AS 'a' in General Studies)
However i am doing a gap year with KPMG this year and an extra A-Level or so and will be applying with, AAAAA(A) (with the last 'A' in General Studies) - all of which i have completed at a Grammar School,
But the High School i went to was a bog standard state comprehensive and as a result my GCSE results suffered, i have 4A*'s, 3A's and 3B's (with my high school having a 49% pass rate for pupils gaining 5 GCSE's between A*-C)
I was wondering if you thought i had a reasonable chance of actually getting into PPE with this???
I know i can do well in my Interview (with preparation of course) and PS (as i do 2/3 subjects for A2 and so have a genuine interest in them to begin with), its only my GCSE scores which are making me worrying me badly,
Would Oxford place much emphasis on the fact that my high school was not to good which contributed to my performance???
Also from the people who study PPE with you or that you know of, do most have like all A's and A*'s etc??
Thanks for your help mate it will get me out of a big dilemma that i have at the moment
