My firm choice is the university of Birmingham and my insurance choice is the university of Leicester, the courses don't have a massive grade difference however I liked both Unis
Is this an okay combination for a firm choice and insurance choice? Watch

what is the grade difference?

Well it depends what you mean by 'not a massive grade difference'. In my opinion, if there is only 1 grade difference then it is quite risky, but with 2 grades difference it becomes a safer insurance choice.
At the end of the day, you have to make a decision based on what you think you can genuinely achieve. For example, if your predictions have been inflated from your AS levels and the offer for Birmingham is a big stretch for you academically, then a bigger difference with your insurance choice would be prudent. However if you got AS grades equivalent to the A2 grades of your Birmingham offer, then its less important that your insurance choice is lower, if you get what I'm saying?
Tbh if they are your favourite 2 universities and favourite 2 courses, then go for it.
