Hey guys in AS I achieved AAB and I am currently applying for uni of Nottingham (AAB), university of kent(AAB), university of Sheffield (AAB), university of Loughborough (AAB-ABB), and UEA (abb) to do psychology.
uea is my backup but I'm thinking should I aim lower like BBB?I'm really scared I will flop this year... I'm the sort of person to get c/b in mocks sometimes a. i just wanted to know what u guys think my backup grade requirement should be??

Yeah always have a choice where the requirement is low but you don't mind going there.

Dont ever aim low, you have pretty good AS grades there shouldnt be a reason you wouldnt do well this year, stop stressing and just work hard and for just a backup it probably would be BBC or BBB. But good luck

If you got AAB at AS you can probably be fairly confident of offers from all the unis you mentioned. Perhaps swap one of the ones requiring AAB (e.g. Kent, Loughborough, etc.) but you don't love as much as the others and replace it with one requiring BBB? That way, you have the option of either a high insurance choice (UEA) or a low one (Essex). You can wait until closer to exams before you need to finally decide on your firm/ insurance choices - by which point you will have more of an idea if you are going to get good or bad grades

Personally, my insurance choice was exactly the same grades as my firm, because I was feeling confident that I would meet the grades. If you are feeling less confident, then somewhere asking for perhaps one or two grades lower at AS would be a good bet (e.g. ABB/ BBB)

Both are pretty good unis I believe, so keep whichever one you prefer? Have you had a chance to visit them all yet? If not, have a look in more detail at the course details etc. on their websites - for example one might offer a year abroad or something?
