For my firm choice I have chosen UCL which wants me to get AAAe however I'm unsure on what I should put as my Insurance- Kings or Queen Mary
Queen Mary want ABB whilst Kings want AAA and is my more favoured option
What should I do?

Insure QM.

No point having a firm and insurance at the same grades. Defeats the whole point lol.

I'd put down Kings for sure! Amazing uni, and one of my really good friends' sister is there doing some history related course and she said it's absolutely amazing ! PLUS Kings is ranked much higher than Queen Marys on complete university guide

I was thinking that too but Kings seem to be more lenient than UCL and seem to accept you even if you just miss the needed grades

Yeah they are sometimes a bit lenient, I do pharmacy there and a few people on my course got in with one grade lower than asked (they got ABB and kings asks for AAB for pharmacy).

Well, same with UCL, they let in plenty of students who marginally missed their offer. The whole point of an insurance choice is that it's lower than your firm, so you don't have to stress so much during A2. :confused:

I would go for Queen Mary's, like Ed says, it defeats the whole purpose choosing King's as a back up choice if they're asking you get the same grades as your first choice. Look at it this way, they are both part of the University of London. I feel Queen Mary's has more character. East London is a really hip place to be. They have a really cool student village. If you choose King's as your back up choice and you haven't got the grades, you might have to go through clearing. Clearing can be fun but it also can be pressurised. Maybe you could take the risk and put King's down as your backup and if you don't get in, you could go through clearing and try to get in to Queen Mary's.

Personally I would argue put Kings down, at the end of the day the insurance is designed to be a uni you want to go to if you don't get into your firm.
