Any lol. Those universities are good and kind of on the same level I'd say. For business management are you doing a sandwich course? Because I'd say that the extra year of experience is what most employers look for, alongside the degree.

Yes, for Sussex and York I applied for the course which includes the placement year. I'm considering taking Sussex as my firm because they are only offering ABC if I put it as the firm choice, and are alternatively offering ABB if I put them as my insurance choice

Don't be swayed by offer conditions, especially ones like these that try to manipulate you. If they make this sort of offer it's because they accept those grades from firm, insurance and clearing students in August but they want to manipulate you into picking them as firm so that they get more students and more money. Think carefully about whether you want to go to a university that puts it's own interests ahead of allowing you to make an informed and good decision.

Noone can make this decision for you. The course that makes you happy and helps you do your best work could be the worst choice possible for someone else (and vice versa).
