    My suggestion
    1.Look at the course modules
    2.Choose the one that you like
    3.Firm it
    4.Score great in your 12th
    5.Accept the offer and pay your deposit
    6.Start University
    7.Work Hard during the 4 years(3 years at uni,1 year at industry placement
    8.Improve your skills and be up to date with the industry
    9.Enjoy life while doing this,go for trips,make friends,fall in love(your choice if you want to).Will lead to less stress(Does not have much effect on your job)
    10.Regardless of where you studied,you would land a decent job

    All of those universities are really good. It comes down to your preference, in my opinion. Look at the courses, living expenses, other living factors, city characteristics etc.

    We really can't choose for you. Where did you prefer the most? What modules interest you the most? Give it some careful thought and then firm it, you must have had some preference when you made your choices?

    I concur, but I am biased too!

    In the end, go for the one you like best, personally. They are all equally reputable.

    I agree with this. Point 8 is going to affect your job prospects more than anything and the rest of what happens based on your decision between these universities is mostly random - so don't fret too much over it!

    If someone was bent on pursuing a small advantage on the milkround for very corporate grad jobs (think Tech job in banking sector) then I might suggest Bath. But from experience I would argue that such a narrow minded pursuit defeats the point of university and is seldom helpful in the long term. In the real world you should be flexible, have an open mind and enjoy yourself!
