    Hi,

    I am applying to do History at Uni and I have predicted grades of AAB (History, Sociology and English). My first choice was Newcastle Uni and their grades were AAA-AAB and they've offered me AAA. I've also been offered AAB from Uni of Liverpool which was my 2nd choice and had the same grade requirements as Newcastle.
    I've also applied to Uni of Hull, Uni of Lincoln and Northumbria which all had lower grade requirements. Haven't got any offers back from them yet.

    What would you do in my circumstances? Trying to get as many opinions as possible before I make a decision!

    Thanks

    If you have your heart set on Newcastle then use that as an incentive to work really hard so you can get your place! The more tough decision is deciding which to use as your insurance. It's a little risky having an offer of AAB as your insurance as it doesn't leave much room for error. Would you not be happy at any of the universities that have offered you lower offers? Could you see yourself going there if you happened to miss your firm offer?

    You have months to make your decision. Try to visit any unis you haven't yet been to in the meantime.
