    I've always been torn between going to warwick or nottingham uni for a history degree.
    Warwick has offered me AAA entry but nottingham has offered me an unconditional offer. I dont know what i should do because i loved both but warwick has the better 'status' and academic rankings compared to nottingham. But taking the unconditional is so much less pressure

    Any advice?

    How likely do you think achieving the AAA offer is?

    Is the unconditional baed on you firming Nottingham?

    This. You have half your A2 grade in the bank inthe form of AS marks. What grades/UMS did you achieve?

    And in general, which of the two courses do you prefer???

    Can you not just firm Warwick and put Notts as insurance?

    Think about where you can actually see yourself for 3+ years, look carefully at modules etc and make the best decision for you, regardless of whether it is conditional or unconditional. If you put Notts as insurance, what grade is required in case you missed the grades for Warwick? Think about all of that. Of course the studies are most important but both unis are brilliant, look at whole environment, affordability of area (especially after 1st year in halls), night life possibly (Warwick looks dull but Coventry is nearby and leamington spa)
