    You don't need to decide this until you have all your offers/decisions - ie.May 2016 at the earliest.

    If you are currently applying, you do not need to list your 5 choices in any sort of 'preference order'.

    Advice here on How to Avoid 5 Rejections : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...g_5_Rejections
    And (eventually) How to make your Firm/Insurance choices ; http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...urance-choices

    I would have discounted Chester from that lot (you normally go to Chester to be a primary school teacher or a nurse) until I saw that the employability stats for Chester for accountancy seem to be head and shoulders ahead of everywhere else. Frankly nobody does an accountancy degree for the love of knowledge. My view would be make enquiries why Chester is playing in the big league and if you like the answer; go there. It is a lovely and safe city

    I have voted but at the end of the day what we think is the best university likely won't be for you. Visit the universities, get a feel for them. Don't rely simply on others' opinions and league tables! It's whether the university 'feels' right!!
