I am new to tsr and thought i would ask the question I have been wanting to ask for a while as I approach the end of my high school career.
I am a high school student in Australia and I am thinking about applying to ppe at oxford. As corny/ridiculous as this may sound, I honestly feel as though ppe (particularly philosophy and economics) are perfectly suited to me and I was born to study them. I have been reading pretty much consistently about economics through my teenage years (and by extension some politics and government) and in the last 2 years become very interested in philosophy. Particularly the interdisciplinary study of economic philosophy and economic psychology.
For arguments sake, let's say I can get above the minimum requirement published on the oxford website (98.5 ATAR). And that my extra curricula's, albeit solid with consistent leadership, are nothing that jump off the page (excluding obviously extremely wide reading).
With all this taken into account, do I have a good chance of making it into oxford ppe. I understand that the obvious response is just "you can only get in if you apply," or "no matter what it is always hard to get accepted into oxford," but I feel as though I need a realistic view of my chances of continuing education at oxford in the United Kingdom.
Thanks anyone for reading this post and thanks in advance for any response.
(Edit: I forgot to add that I am, without sounding too arrogant, extremely good at maths. I do the hardest level of maths available and have been accelerated in maths all through high school. I understand this may be attractive to oxford for ppe but I may be wrong.)
