    I cant decide which uni to apply for as my fifth choice.
    Essex, Durham and Leicester all ask for the same grades ABB (I'm predicted AAA) but there's so many different factors I'm struggling to get my head round

    I'm would be applying for:

    Essex: BSc Financial Management
    Durham: BA Business Finance
    Leicester: BA Banking and Finance

    Things to consider though
    1. Distance (I live in London, miles from Durham)
    2. Overall reputation (guessing durham would win on this front)
    3. Significance of doing a BSc over a BA (Essex)
    4. Course rankings/ reputation (probably Leicester)
    5. Which would be the best socially?

    Any advice is appreciated especially from anyone that goes to these unis
    Thanks
