The time is running fast and I still don't have my 5 university choices! I am starting to stress out a bit.

Could anyone suggest out of my options as well as any other ones which would be the best and most reputable for electronic engineering universities?

So far I have:

Nottingham (AAA-ABB)
Birmingham (AAB)
Liverpool (ABB)
Possibly Loughborough? (ABB)

And I need one more with entry requirements of BBB or less but I'm not sure which one is any good :/ So any suggestions would be a gift from god . (Would Leicester be any good for electronic engineering)?

I have also been looking at Sheffield so if that or any other university would be a much better option than the ones I have mentioned then please say so.

Why is it urgent? You have until the middle of January to apply.

Anyway they're all good universities as a whole, although some may have slightly better electrical & electronics departments than others, only open days and speaking to students at said universities can say.

Most sixth-forms have internal deadlines, so it gives them a chance to check through applications.

Do you want the best overall or the best for a certain grade range? I know that Southampton's ECS is pretty much the best in the country for electronics, and Imperial is pretty close to their standard (both A*AA typical offers)

Quite a lot of universities offer that, Southampton and Manchester certainly do, it's just that they might not offer it in the course details. You'd get onto a course and then request it while you're there. Definitely worth checking.

No they don't....Most universities just give you the option of leaving the course for a year to undertake an industry placement, the placement isn't integrated, so you will end up spending 5 years getting the MEng instead of 4.

At Aston you get an industry placement but you don't stop studying, you will be taking EE courses through distance learning even when working and you still write exams, so in the end you have an MEng degree and 1 year industry experience after 4 years.

Sorry, I misunderstood what you said, I get it now. That actually sounds quite good, albeit quite challenging to pull off if you're working and studying at the same time.
