    The course at Warwick looks great, definitely put it as an insurance.

    Edit: Actually UCL might be a better alternative, considering they're asking for ABB and you're firm choice is asking for AAB.

    Both are awesome - choose depending on whether you prefer an urban or rural lifestye. They're vastly different.

    UCL all day long, if you can afford the living costs.

    I would put UCL (Politics with East European Studies) given that the entrance requirements of ABB are lower... it'd be silly to have a firm and insurance which required the same grades for entry.

    And I wouldn't worry about focusing too much on one area with something like East European Studies... it's probably not as focuses as you might think. You have to learn all the basics of politics, like any normal politics student. East European means you'll have to learn all about EU. Then you'll probably have to learn about the history of these countries... so Cold War, bi-polar world, security studies, Soviet relations, Communism. As developing countries, you'll probably have to learn about the World Bank, IMF, etc. You'll have to learn about the UN as well. But you'll also learn about national issues too. But to understand everything, you'll have to put things in context, and therefore, you'll need to look at the wider world.
