Not sure where to post this but I was looking for some guidance/glancing over my options for applying and the wisest way to definitely get at least 1 offer. I have A* in English lit, A in German & B in Classics, with 9A* GCSEs and 2 As. My PS includes extenuating circumstances with references for my actual statement having little substance in terms of volunteering etc.
I'm looking at;
Queen Mary for English lit
Bristol for English & Classics
Kings for English & Classics
Durham for English
Edinburgh for English
and then open to suggestions for something else.
I know the last two are unlikely but already having my grades I'm wondering if it is still worth applying even not meeting the usual offer (though Bristol offers contextual offers below my grades?)
Just looking for some advice pre admission
