    Not 100% sure on what my choices should be, all these different factors on the league tables just seem to confuse me even more, guess I'm looking for the best balance between entry requirements and employment rate, preferably in or as close to London as possible. Would be great to hear other opinions, thanks.

    If your predicted grades are BBB, as you stated in another thread, then your options are fairly limited. Personally I would go for a couple of unis with entry requirements of ABB and the other 3 with BBB or worse. Set your sights too high and you may get no offers and end up in clearing.

    If you haven't already done so I would suggest you start visiting unis, as the feel of the uni is just as important as everything else. You'll be spending the next 3 years of your life there. You do not want to pick a uni where you don't feel comfortable.

    There are plenty in or around London with ABB - Royal Holloway, Reading, Queen Mary. Those with BBB or lower include - Middlesex, London Met, Greenwich. If you're feeling lucky maybe apply for Surrey which is a good up and coming uni.

    Swansea is a good shout, it's ABB-BBB for their straight BSc CS programme and they've been doing very well lately in the metrics used by league tables. Ofc not biased or anything :P The integrated masters is more like AAB-ABB tho.

    Maybe try and improve your actual A Level grades and then maybe apply for adjustment if that's what you want to do. With ABB you could get into some alright unis but with BBC you won't.
