    Predicted ABC in History, Economics and Maths (respectively) and thinking of applying to ABB-BBB universities.
    Ones I'm thinking of are:
    Surrey- ABB
    Leceister- ABB

    I think I should change it to 3 unis with BBB and 2 for ABB. My top choice is Surrey though. Any advice?

    Well people advise to choose one aspirational target, 2-3 safe choices (e.g. target grades and maybe one with a grade above/below) then one insurance so lower than your predictions.

    I've chosen: (predicted ABB)
    Loughborough: ABB
    Sheffield: ABB/AAB
    Birmingham: AAA
    Newcastle: ABB/AAB
    Northumbria: 128 UCAS points (equiv. ABB) but this has more room for manoeuvrability with grades such as ABB or AAC etc.

    Hi, I visited surrey and got an offer last ayer, but they are getting VERY popular, they said they had around 1000 applicants for 120 odd places, and only invited people to applicant days if they had a realistic chance of getting in, and i talked to most people and said they had ABB, no less.
