I'm currently looking at History courses with ABB entry requirements but with it being such a competitive course most unis ask for AAA and AAB which is above my predictions of ABB.
This has lead to me looking at the Ancient History course with its typically lower entry requirements and I wondered how different it was to a normal History degree. Would I be better off getting a History degree from what is considered a lesser uni (such as Leicester) or going to a Russell Group uni and doing Ancient History? Just hypothetical questions at the moment.
Thanks in advance.

Do you want a career specific to history? Do you think you would enjoy a degree in ancient history?
To be honest, there are lots more variables when you come to getting a job than just the university you went to. You've still got time to look more into what a degree in ancient history involves, and to decide if you would enjoy studying it. If you think it's a degree you would enjoy, then apply for it. If you'd rather study the content of a normal history degree, then you'd be better off applying for that. There's not much point in applying for a degree you wouldn't enjoy because you think the graduate prospects are slightly better.
