    As we all know, this is the time of the year when the Year 13s have to make their decisions regarding their firm and insurance choices. I have offers from Queen Mary University of London, University of Surrey, University of Southampton and University of Kent. I've visited all of them and have considered different aspects (i.e. distance from home, societies and clubs, course structure, etc.) I think I want QMUL and Kent as my choices, but I'm not sure which ones to put as firm and insurance. They both want AAB and Surrey & Southampton both want AAA. My predicted grades are A*AA; thus I think that choosing AAB as my firm is a bit stupid. Can anyone please help/give your opinions?

    PS: Can anyone also inform me of the Economics department from QMUL and Kent (preferably from an undergraduate's perspective).

    Also, how many hours of contact time does each university have per week?

    IMO Southampton firm and either QM or Kent as insurance...
    But you may have reasons why you dont want to choose Southampton?

    The only reason why I don't like Southampton is it's a bit far away from home for me.
