    ABBB at AS means you'll probably looking at some of the top unis for yourself. When I applied I used this kind of thought process:
    What course do I want to study? => Maths
    Which universities offer Maths? => Many
    Which universities are reputable for Maths? => Cambridge, Oxford, London ones, Warwick, Nottingham, Durham, Bath, Bristol, etc.
    Are there any of the above I wouldn't want to go to? => Not Bristol, Bath, Cambridge or London.
    Are my predicted grades going to be suitable for all of the above? => Probably not Oxford, but it's worth a pop.
    All of these universities have similar entry requirements, who offer good courses with slightly lower grades? => See process of elimination used for higher grade ones.
    How many high offers and how many low offers do I want? => 3 of each

    Then go off and visit open days. As mine I eventually chose to go for Oxford, Durham and Warwick as firm possibilities and Exeter, Manchester and Southampton as reserves.
