Hey... to any PPEists out there, I have some questions.
For AS level at the moment I do History, Government & Politics, Geography, English Lit and French (as well as Gen. Studies)
I have decided for university I want to do either History, History and Politics or PPE.
But... for PPE, I've heard a variety of opinions about whether you need Maths, up to A2, to stand a good chance of even getting an interview. Some have said you just need an aptitude.
What's the truth?
I did get an A* in my GCSE Maths and I also did an Add. Maths qualification in the same year but only got a C in the end :P I also got 12A*s and 1A in my GCSEs though.
I have a genuine interest in the three subjects and if anything, economics is the only part of Maths I've had a real interest for! This isn't just about prestige.
Yet, I know after the first year you can either carry on with the 3 or do 2. I suspect I will specialise in Pol. and Phil.
To sum up: do I need maths (to A2 or AS)?
Shall i mention Add. Maths on my UCAS?
Will I be wasting my time applying?
Is the course really that mathsy? (From looking at the 1st year course it seems very info/theory based)
Is there anything else you would recommend or add?
