    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 for the four year period

    Unfortunate about Leicester because it's a really nice uni but if i were you i would put loughborough as my firm and city as my insurance

    the only problem i would have about loughborough is that its really small but thats just me

    If you plan to move out of London surely it's just a case of Aston vs Loughborough. I would go with Loughborough but the choice is down to you- the departmental open days should clear any doubts you have.

    Firm Loughborough, insure City university. Hopefully you'll get a chance to visit Loughborough I'm sure they invite all successful applicants to an open day? If you choose to attend, I shall be seeing you next September!

    You should definitely insure City.

    Yeah I know, it was my 1st choice as well, but oh well ...That's the thing, most of my friends said the same thing that Loughborough is really small. But yeah I was also thinking about putting City as my insurance. Thank you for your input

    I know, I'm really looking forward to the departmental open days so it can really help me with my decision. Thank you for your input

    D is a Distinction which is equivalent to an A. My predicted grade is DDD which is equivalent to AAA in A-Level terms.
