I have offers from both Bath and York for Economics and I'm undecided as to which one I should firm. In the league tables Bath is significantly higher than York, however I'm from the north west and unsure about how I would afford train journeys. I really liked York and think the campus is beautiful and it also is asking for AAA (bearing in mind Bath is A*AA which I'm totally not confident on even though I'm predicted those grades). Of course I have the option of firming Bath and putting York as insurance but I'm worried about not getting a place in accommodation in York if I don't end up achieving A*AA.

I think you need to weight the pros and cons of each university to your specific circumstance. Bath ranks higher nationally but York is placed higher on international rankings so I think you can't depend on rankings.

From what I've heard from you, it seems like studying at York would be more convenient for you. It's a wonderful city to live in as well.

The original poster asked this question three years ago. By now they have clearly made a decision. I'm closing the thread. Any further discussion on choosing Bath versus York can be done in a new thread.
