    I have offers from both Leeds and Manchester for medicine. My top choice is Leeds, so I am going to firm that.

    I do not know what to put down as my insurance choice? Manchester would be my second choice, but it has the same requirements as Leeds so is there any point putting it down?

    My thinking is that if I put Manchester as my insurance, if someone goes wrong with Leeds then I still have my foot in the door for Manchester. But I'm just not sure if that's really a thing.

    My other option would be to put Biomedical Science - Sussex as my insurance. But I don't want to go there, so again is seems pointless.

    Hope you can help,

    If you put Manchester as an insurance if you dont get AAA, there is a (very) slim chance they will give you an offer.

    well theres no point in having manchester as an insurance as theyd most likely reject you if you dont get the grades for leeds. I'd put sussex as insurance, so at least if anything goes wrong you have a place at uni. If you dont get the grades and you really dont want to go sussex then you could go through clearing.

    If you really don't want to go to Sussex, then there is no point in having as an insurance. Manchester would be a better choice. However, if something goes wrong for them both then, you might have to take a gap year.

    If you definitely don't want to do Biomedical at Sussex then put Manchester as your insurance. However bear in mind that option has a higher risk of you ending up in Clearing and potentially not getting a place anywhere for this year at least. It completely depends on if you want to take that risk, as if you'd rather go to Sussex for Biomedical than nowhere then you'd be better off insuring there.
