    I've had all my offers back for History and Politics and am in two minds about my firm and insurance. I already have an A in Government and Politics A level and am still studying History (predicted A) and English Lit/Lang (predicted B). The universities that I have offers from are Keele (ABC), Liverpool (ABB), Kent (AAB), UEA (AAB) and Birmingham (AAA).
    Currently I am leaning strongly towards firming Birmingham and having Liverpool as my back-up. The alternative is having UEA as my firm and Liverpool as back-up.
    I know I will kick myself if I put down UEA and then I get AAA, because Birmingham is my favourite, but I'm not sure how UEA and Liverpool compare both as universities in their own right and for my course specifically, and there is a risk in putting Birmingham as my firm if Liverpool is inferior to UEA.
    Can anyone help me out?

    Why not put Birmingham down as your firm and UEA as your insurance?
