    So! I have offers for computer science from
    Nottingham, Newcastle, Keele, Aberystwyth and Nottingham Trent

    I'm unsure what to put first.
    I was stuck between Nottingham and Newcastle (Both offered me ABB, both have equal pros and cons) but was leaning towards nottingham. However, I recently got terrible maths mock results (a U in core 3 :cry2:) and I'm taking the Aberystwyth scholarship exam.

    If you pass the scholarship exam, you get an unconditional, but the only way you can accept it is if you put them first (you also get money off accommodation fees if you put them first).

    If I pass it, do I put Aber first and not have to worry about maths (which I'm pushing myself for a C or a B in) or do I keep them as insurance (which the offer is BBC).

    Apart from maths I'm taking english (which is on track for an A or a B) and computing (Which is on track for a B).

    TL;DR: I'm stuck between putting a better uni first which I may not get into, or a potential unconditional first

    Help me decide!!
