    Ah ok because I was going to say if you're 100% sure about getting AAA just insure Birmingham but you're not

    Personally I think Nottingham>Bristol>Birmingham

    However, there's no rush for you to pick your firm and insurance immediately, you do have until the end of March so maybe wait until after any mock results and see where you're at?
    I thought it was widely accepted that Bristol is better than Nottingham for economics

    Congratulations, yeah I have heard of the A*A*A offer its incredibly high I think they are hinting for you to firm them anyhow how long did you wait for your offer?
    A little less than 2 months.
    I would rather go to bath than Exeter due to the location and placement year so their higher offer dissuaded me further

    Both are really good!
    Your stats?

    GCSE's- 6A*'S, 2A'S, 3B'S
    AS LEVELS- 3A'S (Econ, History, Maths), 1B (Phyiscs)
    PREDICTIONS- A*AA

    Bristol is econ and management and Nottingham is straight econ, not sure which one to go for.

    Last year Notts definitely did better but I'm not sure as a whole, I don't think there's much difference between Notts Bristol or Bath though, depends on what you want location wise

    On a side note Notts does have an alumni(us?) who won the nobel prize in economics :cool:

    Tbh bath, Bristol and Nottingham are all pretty similar IMO. Employers will treat all 3 quite similarly.
    If you're trying to decide out of these unis, decide based on which one you like more rather than their graduate prospects etc.

    Fair point, however I looked at some international rankings and Bath is ranked fairly low compared to the likes of Bristol which is top 50, do you think this should have any influence on my decision?

    Just Wondering why you are going to accept 2 unis with the same grades? Seems a bit pointless to me if you miss the grades you don't go to uni. What is wrong with Leeds and Liverpool?
    Well honestly there's no other uni in England with a reputation or city I'd want to go to, Reading at ABB was somewhat a consideration but then I thought, I don't want to go to Reading...

    As well as that personally I think I'll get AAA, meaning I'll get into Manchester, but if I do mess up Maths (because C3 and C4 are seeming pretty difficult so far) then Sheffield will take me at AAB without the A needed in Maths for Manchester

    Also I just always wanted to go to Manchester and still do, nothing particularly wrong with Liverpool or Leeds but I can't really put them as my insurance when they have higher grades than my firm

    I also have a friend who got into Manchester last year for Chemistry when he got BBB on an ABB offer so if I miss the grades slightly then I might just be lucky and they'll take me

    Originally I was going to make Manchester my firm (AAB) and make the Leeds Access Scheme offer (ABB with completed summer school) or Newcastle Partners offer (ABB with completed summer school) my insurance until I found out access scheme offers can only be taken as firm choices

    I was also considering applying for the Economics and Maths BSc at Newcastle to have as my insurance choice as I think they give offers of ABB on that course, then I thought...I do not have a strong enough interest in pure/core maths for that course

    University isn't about getting a 'useful' qualification for me, it's about studying something that interests me in a place I like, so I'm not a fan of applying somewhere I wouldn't want to go on a course I wouldn't want to do just to go to uni

    If I ended up not getting in then I could see myself just working for a year and reapplying the year after for the access schemes with my already achived grades

    Yes it should be, if the A* is in maths then definately, however the typical offer is A*AA so the B may be a disadvantage
