Guide to Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) at Oxford
Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) is one of the most popular, and best-known, courses that you can read at Oxford. It has been offered since 1921, and it’s rooted in the view that it’s helpful to approach problems in society from the perspectives of several complementary disciplines and frameworks.
Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA)
What is the TSA? The Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) is a form of assessment used to measure aptitude in critical thinking and problem solving. The TSA can be a requirement for gaining entry to top universities (including Oxford, Cambridge and UCL), as well as a handful of independent schools, who produce their own modified version of the exam (sometimes called a Critical Thinking test) for 16+.

Webinar: A Guide to Oxbridge
Keystone's Head of Consultancy, Harriet Brook, was joined by Jenny McGowan, our Director in Asia, to discuss the Oxbridge application process. Their discussion covers the differences between Oxford and Cambridge, course choice, the importance of super-curricular learning, admissions tests, interviews and how to prepare effectively.
We can provide Philosophy tuition tailored to specific exams, from the IB Philosophy and Theory of Knowledge subjects, to A Level Philosophy, to the Oxford Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) and Philosophy test, to the Cambridge Philosophy Admissions Assessment. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Philosophy papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Philosophy to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
IB Philosophy, and IB Theory of Knowledge, are challenging parts of the IBDP programme, covering topics like Epistemology, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science. Our Philosophy tutors will help your child to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, develop their logic and critical thinking skills, and communicate their knowledge successfully in an exam context.
A Level Philosophy is a well-respected subject suitable for many future career paths, and students have to master a wide range of complex topics, authors, and concepts to succeed. Our Philosophy tutors are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them to communicate their knowledge at a high level under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
These three entrance assessments are designed to help whittle down the number of students moving on to interview stage for a variety of courses related to Philosophy at Oxford and Cambridge, and as such are rigorous and competitive examinations. Our Philosophy tutors can help your child maximise their performance in this assessment, building on their knowledge and helping them to demonstrate the depth of their understanding successfully, as they compete for places to read Philosophy at the prestigious university of their choice.
