    Basically I have an AAA offer from both Exeter and Durham for Classics. Would it be unadvisable to firm Durham and put Exeter as my insurance when they both require AAA? So for example say I missed the grades and got AAB instead - and Durham rejected me - is there any chance Exeter would accept me with AAB bearing in mind they would be my insurance choice?? The course I've applied for at Exeter actually accepts people with ABB in the past so I am just wondering if anyone knows this is possible or has any thoughts? Is it too risky and I could end up with neither?


    Thanks

    Yeah. It won't make any difference. They'll just be desperate to get as many people on their course as possible.
