    Hi,
    I've applied to Business and Management at:
    Durham (ABB)
    Lancaster (AAB)
    York (AAB)
    UEA (ABB)
    Liverpool (ABB)
    and received all 5 offers.
    For my firm, I'm struggling to decide between Lancaster and Durham.
    Durham's typical offer on their website is AAB, but they offered me ABB, is that too good to not put as my firm?
    Also, it doesn't make logical sense to put York or Lancaster as my insurance, so my insurance would have to be UEA or Liverpool, and I don't know which to put.

    Can anyone give any input into which I should put as a firm and which as the insurance?

    Thanks for any help !

    when making you firm/insurance decision, you should consider the entry requirements, course content (modules), accommodation and possibly rankings. if the university you want to go to the most happens to have abb requirements, you ought to firm it because it means you're more likely to meet the offer.

    Yaa, thanks, but do you have like any information about if Durham is better than Lancaster overall and for business.
    It is higher in the league tables, so I'll probably pick it, but I don't know whether to pick UEA or Liverpool as an insurance.
    Thanks for your reply
