    I am trying to choose between Exeter and Manchester as my first choice for PPE. After visiting both Exeter seems more chilled, clam and quaint and has the slight edge on appeal. I'm not one for going out so that isn't too much of an issue. Both offers are identical (AAB) and very achievable. I was wondering if there was anything final thoughts that might convince me either way... Also if I firm Exeter is there any sense in using Manchester as insurance as they except two AS' in replace of one A-Level, so I'd effectively need 'AB' or just stick Lancaster as my insurance as it's super easy to get into... If all goes very well and I get my predicted grades i'll be taking a gap year anyway.

    Agreed. And only insure a university that you would be happy to attend.

    I think that's a good idea too. They are both good universities but I prefer Exeter.
