Hi everyone. I will try and keep this as brief as possible, but hopefully someone has the information I need.
I have got all 5 of my uni offers for 2016 entry, all BSC Economics:
-LSE, A*mathsAA, A further maths
-Queen Mary, AAA
I intend to put LSE as firm. However I am having trouble choosing my insurance. I would like to put UCL but am cautious about having two very high graded offers. I would then need to chose between Surrey or Queen Mary. However, I lack real passion for either of these universities compared to my top two. I am very (perhaps too much) influenced by league tables and as a result am determined to go to a top-5 university.
What I would like to know is if I put UCL and LSE down, but did not get an A* in maths, what are my options? Is it likely that Surrey or Queen Mary would be in clearing? Is it possible to reapply to LSE the following year to a different course that doesn't need the A*? If so, what would happen with personal statement, reference etc.
Also, can I choose my firm choice now and insurance at a later date? From what I can find I cannot... I would not be rushing into the decision if it wasn't for the fact I would like to start applying for accomodation, and LSE requires it to be a firm choice first.
I will appreciate any advice regarding this issue.
...and how to stay positive
