    I have received all offers from my universities and each of the offers can be seen in my signature. The problem is it is looking all the more likely that providing I work hard I will get BBB. At the moment getting ABB is highly unlikely.

    Now, would it be worth putting one of the ABB universities as my firm choice, even though I will probably end up with BBB? What are the chances? Is it worth it? Or not?

    Thank you!

    Well you may as well, there is little point having two BBB offers as firm and insurance.

    In an ideal world and you could go to any of your five offers, where would you go?

    Judging by your sig, you should firm either Surrey or Royal Holloway, and insure any of the others

    Firm an ABB and put a BBB as insurance; that way unless you really mess up you can be sure of being at one of your choices.

    Universities aren't that flexible with offers; especially as there is so much competition with the fees going up next year and a fair number of re-applicants from last year too.
