    Personally i would say to consider a slightly bigger spread of grade choices as you havent really given yourself an insurance choice/back up with those.
    Also Loughborough wants at least a B in maths a level and manchester also requires a maths a level, so contact them if you havent already to be sure they accept your qualifications as an equivalent.

    Thank your for your reply. if check the requirements for both loughborogh and manchester for electrical/electronic engineering - they don't need A level maths. Most of unies or good univesrity needs DDD and the others are not my list really

    Do any of your choices offer a foundation year, you could use that as a back up choice?

    Yes they 3-4 of them do foundation degree in engineering or science . But most unlikely i would take that route.

    Having a range would make it more likely that you get an offer but dont go for anywhere you wouldnt be happy with.

    Extra has no guarantees you ll get a place, but it gives you the opportunity to keep applying to universities until june when clearing starts.

    Because universities don't have infinite places so if they ve no places left to offer in extra if there are no suitable choices for you, then you cant guarantee that you ll get a place.
