    PLEASE could someone give me some advice on the firm and insurance choice to make.
    I have been accepted by Kings (Maths with Management & Finance), Birmingham (Maths with Business), Aston (Maths with Business) and Queen Mary (Maths with Business).
    The required grades for Kings is AAB, Birmingham ABB, Queen Mary and Aston BBB.
    The problem is, I don't think I will be able to get AAB, the best I could get is ABB. So I don't really know what choices to make.
    I really love Kings and Birmingham because they are both have great campuses as well being in a major city.
    If I do put Kings as my firm and Birmingham as insurance, and if I get ABB then it will mean I will have to go to Birmingham. But I do not have guaranteed accomodation if Birmingham is my insurance, and I am from London.
    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOO
    What shall I do?
    PLUS THERE IS A HIGH POSSIBILITY OF ME GETTING BBB. WILL IT MEAN I AM SCREWED?

    I would really appreciate someone helping me out on this one because I aint got a clue on what to do.
    Thanks

    Well that's what having an insurance choice is for really. You could choose the one you would ideally go for if you could get the grades (one you could get the grades for if you work very hard, not one that is just too too difficult- Birmingham perhaps) and then put one with an offer that you are very confident of meeting (the BBB offer I guess) as your insurance. Only if you really can see yourself going there, that is. OR you could put the AAB offer and have a good crack at it? We really can't tell you what to do.

    Though if you meet neither offer it's not even like you're "totally screwed"; there's always clearing for instance.
