    Yesterday I was rejected from Warwick for Economics after previously being rejected from LSE. My predicted grades as A*AA in Economics, Maths and Physics (though I'm confident I can get A*A*A) plus I'm doing an EPQ which I expect an A in. I got AAAAA (the fifth being General Studies) at AS.

    I have offers from Birmingham (unconditional if firm), Manchester and Loughborough (both AAB). My current intention is to firm Manchester, then attempt to go for something through Adjustment if I get A*AA or better in my exams.

    As I want to do some thinking about where would be best prior to actually getting my results, I'd appreciate some advice on where could be realistic based on which unis might have places, which unis may have decent accommodation still available and which would be realistic for my grades.

    It is unlikely Economics will be in Adjustment for Warwick, and definitely not for LSE.

    Also you can rule out Oxbridge and probably St Andrews/Durham/UCL.

    Manchester is a prefectly excellent university.

    I should clarify I wasn't looking specifically for Warwick / LSE having places - I knew for sure LSE wouldn't be available and I assumed as much about Warwick. I know Manchester is good but I'd like to look for others as well - after all if you don't find something you like in adjustment you still keep your firm.
