    I'm studying in IB, I have a predicted 35 with 666 (or AAA) in my highers.
    I'm applying for marketing and so far I applied to:
    -Lancaster
    -Bath
    -Edinburgh
    -Manchester
    I'm struggling with choosing my 5th uni and basically I have 2 options:
    1.choose a safety school like Strathclyde or
    2.choose Leeds/Durnham/Surrey/smth else.

    Any advice on what I should do or thoughts about any of the mentioned unis? or maybe recommend another uni?

    your fifth choice should ideally be a safety choice at least 2 grades lower than your predicted grades in case of rejections and you not meeting your grades. I would look at kent Liverpool Essex and keele to see if you like one of those

    Put an ABB uni like Leicester or Loughborough down, but probably not Loughborough because it's horrible

    no it doesn't hahaha it's just people with straight As tend to always do it early. I'd say choose a good uni for your 5th choice as you can always go through clearing if you don't receive any offers or don't make your entry requirement for some reason

    Depends. Would you be happy going to Strathclyde? If the answer is no, don't put it down. AAA should be good enough definitely for Leeds/Surrey, especially if you have a good personal statement.

    wait, it's not A*A*A*, it's AAA, or is it considered good too? AND what is clearing? never heard of it

    Are there any other good marketing unis that you might know? I am just very undecided about which uni it should be if it's not a safety one.

    if you don't get your grades n get rejected you can apply to unis that require the lower grades that you got - it's opposite of adjustment where you can reapply if you got higher than what you were predicted

    Aston, Loughborough, Greenwich - there are lots of Unis to apply to.
    Ideas here : http://www.whatuni.com/

    MAKE SURE you have an obvious Insurance choice - ie. a Uni asking for way lower grades than the one you are likely to Firm, and one that you would still be happy to go to.
