    My predicted grades are ABB, I am applying to an ABB university for my firm and am thinking of applying to an BBB university for my insurance. I know I'm not leaving myself much room if I mess up but I don't want to get one grade off my predicted and not be accepted to my firm and then have to go to a lower down uni. If I do mess up I can just apply through clearing even though my place is not guaranteed.
    I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but I think I could do it. Is this smart to do or a bad idea?
    Thanks

    A perfectly reasonable strategy in general. Which unis/course are you talking about?

    Can't see any particular issues with that.
