    So I got all 5 of my offers a while back for Computer Science/Year in Industry (G401). I'm currently studying the BTEC National Diploma for IT Practitioners and have been predicted DDD. Below are my offers:

    1) Loughborough University, Leicestershire - DDD (Conditional)
    2) Aston University, Birmingham - DDD (Conditional)
    3) City University, London - DDM (Conditional)
    4) Queen Mary, London - DDD (Distinction in every Unit) (Conditional)
    5) Leicester University, Leicester - DDD (Unsuccessful)

    Currently I'm quite unsure of what universities I should put as my firm and as my insurance. In the next coming months I will be visiting the universities that have given me offers on their department open days.

    I would really appreciate it, if you TSR users could give me some input on my situation as I get bias responses from my family and friends. I also plan to move out of London

    I swear I've seen this post before, but whatever.

    Loughborough firm, City insurance if I was in your position.

    Let's be honest though, asking a forum which of your options to firm/insure is pretty crazy no?

    Did you put your individual units when you applied? I applied to QMUL but I got 8 distinctions and 1 pass last year and entered the units on my UCAS. I am able to get it to a distinction this year but unsure if they know that.

    Yeah mate, you gotta put in all individual units which the correct grades. I dunno about your situation, but they rejected my mate who had like 7 D's and 2 M's from last year and he was predicted DDD overall.

    What he said. Loughborough is the most reputable university, and at least you'll be in London (for the 'know people, be where the jobs are' advantage) should you fail to get DDD.
