    I have conditional offers of AAB for history at Birmingham, Southampton and Sussex but I'm stuck in choosing which to firm and insure. They are all close together on the league table, so opinions, not just based on that would help.

    Have you visited all of the universities? Which university offers the course that you think is the most interesting?

    Do you have any offers with lower grades? The point of insurance is that if you miss your grades and still have a place at a university that you're realatively happy to go to. If all these unis have given you the same requirements than there's little point putting one in as insurance

    There is no single league table. Which one has the most modules you like?

    Don't go based on the league tables, employers really don't care if you went to Birmingham in 2017 when it was at number 7 in the league for this blah blah blah...

    Go with the university whose course you like the most, at the end of the day, you're going to be studying it for the next 3-4 years so you need to know that you're going to enjoy it! Also, if you've taken a look around the campuses, make sure you take into account whether you like the campus or not!

    Hope all goes well for you!
