    If the course requirements for your firm are higher then those of your insurance, then I don't see why not.

    If you're sure you want to go there, then why not. Just make sure it's a sensible insurance.

    As long as you have offers for at least two different courses at the same university, then yes, you can do that. However, I would really strongly advise you not to unless the grade requirements are different, as it's very unlikely that they will be lenient for one course but not the other if you miss your offer slightly.

    If you don't want to go to any of your choices other than this university, then go for it. It makes much more sense to have two shots at getting into a university you really do want to go to than only putting it down once then having somewhere else as your insurance just because it has lower grades. Your insurance university is essentially your second choice. In an ideal world, yes, it will have lower grades than your first choice but this isn't always possible or preferable. It needs to be your 2nd favourite course and university so if its at the same place then so what? There will be different people applying for both courses meaning yes, it could be that you miss both offers but on one course lots of people do so you get in whereas on the other course everyone else meets it so you don't.

    The worst thing you can do is pick somewhere you don't actually want to go to on the basis of grades alone.
