    My advice is unbiased and haven't applied to any of those unis. I would take Bristol if I were you as your firm. I don't really know what to put as your insurance choice as it is highly unlikely you will fall to AAA or below with those predicted. Choose whichever unconditional you preferred!

    Bristol is more reputable than Leeds and will give you better employment opportunities.
    This is just advice; you've done really well with your grades and that allows you to go to any of these unis...follow your heart

    They're all about the same. Go with whatever one you can envisage studying at for a few years, or whose course options are the most appealing.

    Thats so awesome how did you get 2 UNCONDITONALS! I don't know which one to choose as they are all awesome and other factors play a part. I would 100% though keep one of the unconditionals in the final 2. Does anyone know when you have to decide your firm and insurance.

    I am really unsure about which to chose, at the moment i'am thinking Nottingham as it was my favorite university that i visited and it has the best course, however Bristol is a more reputable university and it would probably be easier to find a job after uni.

    It's not any easier to get a job from Bristol.

    If you like Nottingham the best then go there. It really is that simple.

    The Times Higher Education world rankings has 9 UK universities in it's top 100...Bristol is one of them so that may be a factor to consider.

    Otherwise really look at the flexibility of the courses and what choices you have to follow your interests.
    I know Nottingham has a great range of options allowing you to specialise in one of six streams or follow a broader selection of modules (plus it's a beautiful campus).

    What was your gut instinct when you visited them or looked the website/brochures?
    Which has the course that you like most, i.e. favourite modeules, structure etc?
    Which has the nicest accommodation or best nightlife or whatever you want in a uni?
    Which were you most excited for when you received the offers?

    At the end of the day they're all good unis, so pick your favourite for you! And don't rush into it - give yourself a few months until nearer the deadline to decide.

    In my opinion, Bristol > Nottingham > Birmingham > Leeds.

    That said, you need to take many more factors into consideration when making your choice.

    I immediately declined Durham in favour of Bristol even though the latter gave me a higher offer. That was because I couldn't envisage living in such a small town!

    University is much more than reputation. Make sure you don't regret it later on!
