    Three of my teachers informed me that i would be predicted AAC/B and the fourth, I’ve been told by my other teachers it would be an A worst B - optimistically AAAB (but i may drop my 4th to fully concentre on three).

    I’ve looked around and I’ve seen most universities apart from Oxbridge and Warwick asking for ABB’s. I guess this is because its half sociology.

    Is it wise to pick four very good universities and 1 good one? I was thinking, to be safe, I should pick three excellent, two very good and one good university?

    Cambridge SPS is great, in theory I could apply but in practice it’s a different story. When I compare myself with people I know and they got rejected, I think its best if i count myself out and pick another option

    Example
    Excellent: Bristol (AAA-ABB), York (ABB) and Bath (ABB) (I see Durham and Warwick pretty interchangeable with these three)

    Very Good: Sheffield (BBB), ????? (???) > ????? (???)

    Good: ????? (???)

    Also when they ask for ABB am I right in saying the typical offer is more likely AAB and BBB is more likely ABB?

    I need advice.

    Try looking at the individual departmental tables rather than they must be better because they are asking for better grades

    individual departmental tables are much better... a few years ago sociology was 6th in...some sort of league table... and was higher up than loughborough uni was in a general league table.

    Loughborough asks for bbc I think...though don't quote me on that!
