    Hey so I'm deciding between Birmingham or Loughborough as to which to put as my firm and I'm finding it really hard to decide!!

    Birmingham
    Pros
    - Big city
    - Good nightlife
    - Respected Uni
    - Campus uni so nice community feel

    Cons
    - Risky that I might not get in because I need AAB and my predicted is ABB and I think I will get ABB so i'm kinda relying on them taking me with ABB
    - Not to sound rude but kinda worried the people that go there might be a bit stuck up (only purely on what I've heard) but surely there will be a mixture of students at both those unis:confused:

    Loughborough
    Pros
    - Not as much of a risk to get in- safer option
    - Campus Uni so nice community feel
    - Good student's union
    - More guys than girls..

    Cons
    - Small town not much there
    - I live in Nottingham so its not that far from home and preferably I'd like to go further away and experience a different place

    Could anyone help me with what to do please!!
    I'll either put Birmingham as a firm then Loughborough as an Insurance
    Or Loughborough as a firm and Sheffield Hallam as an insurance (although I don't really want to go there :rolleyes:)


    Thank you!

    This is what a firm and insurance is for.
