    I applied to 3 courses within the same uni, because I didn't know that's unadvisable. Now, I'm thinking that it'd be best to withdraw at least one of the extra courses and apply into another university. However, I'm having trouble deciding where.

    I want to study international relations and/or political science/history. Could you give me some advice on a wise choice in these subjects? Currently I've applied to Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh (Edinburgh is the one where I stupidly sent 3 applications). At the moment I've only got a conditional offer from Glasgow. I haven't finished with my finals yet so I don't know all my grades, but the ones I've got till now are pretty good (7, 7, 6, I'm not sure how to transcribe it in UK grades, either A*A*A or AAB).

    So, now I need 1-2 new choices to change with the extra ones. What would you recommend in this field? I'm mostly looking at Scottish unis (because SAAS and I'm an EU student), but I might consider ones elsewhere in the UK also. If I get into Glasgow I'm probably gonna go there anyway, but I still don't like to have any dead-end extra choices in my application. A "safe choice" might also be worth considering since all the unis I've applied to are a bit hard to get into. Then again, IR/Politics isn't the easiest choice anywhere, it seems.

    //Now I'm a bit embarrassed about the subject line, it should be "A UCAS choice", shouldn't it? English isn't my first language but I should know better than this if I want to study in the UK :d oop
