    Hello,
    I am going to apply to uni to study maths (g100) with predicted grades AAB but can't decide out of these 6 unis to choose from, so was hoping someone may be able to help me decide which ones are the best for maths in their opinion, the unis are UEA (I'm definitely applying to this one), Surrey, Sussex, Leicester, Coventry and Essex. I know Essex isn't that good but need an option with lower grades just in case.
    Thanks very much

    UEA, Surrey, and Sussex are the best of a bad bunch there. I'd especially advise against Leicester as they're firing half of the department due to cuts.

    With AAB there are numerous options
    Lancaster offers this if you are taking Further Maths
    Exeter will offer this if you are entitled to their contextual offer ie if your schools A level results were in the bottom 40% in the last year. You will need to check this out.
    Cardiff and Sheffield offer this. You could also look at Keele, Reading and Swansea.
    I suppose it all depends where you want to study. It is also worth looking into course content as some specialise in Statistics rather than Mechanics.
