    I am reapplying to university this year with the following grades:

    GCSEs: A mixed bag. Mostly A's and B's (extenuating circumstances)
    AS: AAAAA
    A2: 3 A* in English Lit, Philosophy, and Psychology.

    I am applying to Cambridge, UCL, St Andrews, and Durham, and have no clue where to apply for my fifth choice. Does anyone have any suggestions?
    I like traditional universities (architecturally etc), so Warwick is out.
    Perhaps somewhere that is slightly less competitive than the others, as a 'backup' option, would be suitable?

    (Also, am I aiming too high with the other unis? I know my A2 grades are decent, but overall, my application isn't too strong :o: )

    Thank you!
