I know most teachers suggest two 'high', two 'medium' and one low risk or something similar of the sort, how high risk are you aiming for?

Personally, I am going for three AAA universities, one AAA-AAB and one AAB for Law.

Edit: Kind of had a change. It will now be two A*AA and three AAA.

Two AAA, one AAA-AAB and two AAB for Theoretical Physics (or equivalent).

For me, I don't think I'm taking very risky options. I'm confident I can realistically achieve at least AAA this year.

2xAAA
2xAAB
1XABB

Pretty average I think, 2 high, 2 med, 1 low. I got aaa at AS though and would be upset with ABB so that's really if **** hits the fan


Sorry but what the hell was offensive in this to warrant neg ratings? :/

4 high, 1 medium. Don't have the money to waste three years at a 'lesser' uni, If I don't get in i'll have to join the world of work :/

Why the hell was i nagged, for not having the money to pay 9 grand a year on a degree which lacks quality?

Last year I didn't really bother with anything low, lowest was AAA (though it did say AAB when I applied). Luckily I got two offers and managed to get into my firm, though it was incredibly close, I only got a low A in Physics :erm: and I was lucky to get the Bristol offer, considering how competitive it is (for 2010 it was 17 applicants per place :shock:)

4x AAA
1x AAB

However, I would consider two of my AAA options to be "high risk" (Oxford and Durham) and the other two to be "medium risk" (Newcastle and Sheffield).

So unless I get at least AAA (and some offers...), I'm pretty screwed :rolleyes:

Last year I went for:

3 AAA - Oxford (didn't realistically think I'd get in), Durham, and York.
2 AAB- St Andrews (which I thought might be AAA, AAB was a pleasant surprise), and Edinburgh (who for some reason didn't offer BBB like they did for everyone else/every other course/like they did in the past. )

I applied for 3 mid-high risk and 2 medium risk unis last year. Though strangely the only uni to reject me was a medium risk uni. Even better I got the grades that would have only got me into two of my choices and even better one of them was my fave.
