Hi, I'd just like to check if I have a realistic chance of getting into Oxford to do PPE.
I'm planning to apply for Christ church college.
GCSEs- 4A*s and 6As (A*s in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Music)
I'm studying English Lit, History and Religious Studies at A-Level, and we don't do AS for those subjects anymore but I'm predicted A*AA (A* in History) as my actual results. I'm also doing an EPQ about surveillance on the internet.
I do a lot of extra curricular stuff to do with politics, I do a lot of extra reading and I keep up to date with current affairs. I've never studied economics but a lot of my extra reading is to do with economics and I will be doing a lot more extra reading around economics over the Summer. I'm just worried because most of the advice I've read on the PPE at Oxford threads says that I should have studied maths to at least AS. I'm good at maths, I would say, and I do enjoy it, but I just didn't want to take it for A-Level as it didn't compliment my other subjects very well and it looked like the choice was going to be between History and Maths. At my school we don't do AS levels in most subjects so if I'd taken four subjects then I would have to study maths for the whole two years.
Should I study some A-level maths over the Summer just to get my bearings? Should I read around economics more instead? Should I do both????? Help!
