    I have three offers, LJMU who want ABB, MMU - BBB and an unconditional from Bolton.

    The thing is, MMU sound really oversubscribed and i fear that if I get ACC (like i did at AS) they will not accept me.

    LJMU, the course I want to do has been in clearing and admissions told me they would accept ACC last year but obviously they don't know how results are going to turn out like this year.

    Bolton is obviously unconditional but I don't really want to go there however due to family circumstances, I have to go to UNI THIS YEAR!

    So do i put my Firm as MMU then Insurance as LJMU and risk potentially not going?
    Or do i play it safe and put MMU down as Firm but Bolton as insurance?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Put them in the order you most prefer. Don't try to doublethink what might or might not happen on results day.

    Then work hard to meet the offers.

    It's not decision time at all, not for another couple of months, and by then you may feel you have a better idea what grades you are going to get.
