So I have finally (after finding our my grades for recent coursework) come to accept the predicament that achieving my grades for my first choice uni is highly unlikely. However, I still really like my second choice and I'd be more than happy if I got into their course instead.
As I am a bit of a worrier, I wanted to know whether your insurance uni is less likely to be lenient with a student who closely misses their offer (e.g. by one grade) as opposed to how they would be if they were your firm uni?
So in my situation, Exeter is asking AAB (excluding General Studies) for Law w/ European Studies whereas Aberdeen is asking for ABB (including General Studies) for Law w/ Spanish studies.
I am a bit more confident with achieving Aberdeen's offer as it takes my General Studies grade in consideration if I don't make it in my other A-level subjects. So I don't know whether I should just firm Aberdeen and not have an insurance choice? Or firm Exeter (knowing that I probably won't get the grades) so that I can insure Aberdeen? I hope that makes sense!
University more likely to be lenient on results day if you put them as your firm?
