    I have recently received University offers and now am unsure if I should chance my arm and put Loughborough University offer first as ABB for Geography BSC or do I put down my 300 UCAS point offer for the same Course at Hull and be almost guaranteed a place? Help please!!!

    Why not firm Loughborough and have Hull as your insurance? Then if you miss the grades for Loughborough you'll get Hull.

    Have you had all your offers back now?

    I have recently had the 4th of 5 and it was an unconditional offer from Sheffield Hallam, I don't know wether I should take it?

    Loughborough is a more highly regarded uni than Sheffield Hallam but which course did you like best?

    Is the unconditional only valid if you 'firm' it?

    Seriously, choose where you'll be happy and the best course/location for you.

    Cannot stress enough the importance of visiting the place you might end up going: the atmosphere of an area is something only tangible when you actually see it and can make a big difference! I was going to apply to Bristol for Geography, but it just didn't feel right when I went there so I didn't bother! In comparison, Oxford and Sheffield both had a really nice feel to them (from my perspective anyway) so they were my firm and insurance! Work out where you really wanna go, and sort out your firm/insurance details after
