Currently, I have a firm conditional at Kings College London for computer science for an AAB, and I know I am going to exceed that by at least two grades.
I've visited KCL and it seems pretty cool and not only that but it was the only applicant day I'd ever gone to, and the only university I've ever visited with intent of enrollment.
In all honesty, KCL seems to be right for me, but that could also have been any other uni if I'd been invited to their applicant day.
Because of this I am not sure if I really should be making decisions based around my grades and universities that have higher grade boundaries; in the sense that, should I go to a university who's requirements are A*AA simply because I have that grade (or better), under the guise that since their entry requirements are tougher, they must, of course, be a better uni, or should I stay with what I have (KCL) because I like it? (or better yet, because I don't DISlike it)
If I manage to get into the 'better' uni through adjustment, I will have to go through all the hassle of acquiring last minute accommodation, having my student finance application reassessed, as well as having to actually get the uni to let me in in the first place, and probably some other stuff that I can't think of right now.
If I do all of this only to find out that I would have been better off at KCL, it will eat at me for years.
Is it worth it to go through adjustment, knowing that there could be a chance of this happening? Is it worth it to take the risk?

King's is a well-respected uni. Unless you get into Oxbridge, or there are specific other unis that are know to be THE place to be in your field, I doubt it will make much difference. Go where you think you'll be happy. If you think KCL is right for you, don't second-guess that feeling. Grade requirements aren't everything
