    I am soon going to send off my application to ucas and I am just wondering if doing this will be a good idea.

    I am planning to apply for maths at Bristol, Loughborough, cardiff, york and surrey.

    My predicted grades are A* for maths, A for further maths and B for computer science.

    I have already achieved A in maths and A in further maths for my AS. Computer science was internal.

    The courses I am planning to apply for ask for the following grades:

    Bristol: A*AA
    Loughborough: AAA
    Cardiff: AAA-A*AB
    York: AAB
    Surrey: AAB

    Is this a good idea or should I rethink this?

    Yes, if you are happy with the maths courses, I see no problem. The entry requirements lie around your predicted grades.

    I think thats pretty good! You have some solid and safe options, and the A*AA option is still okay considering you have good predictions, but most importantly that you have done as levels to prove your capability in those subjects.

    Overall, it is your choice, you should apply to places you want to go and realistically you can get into, and I do feel that your grades, alongside a good personal statement and reference, would be fine!!

    Good luck for everything!

    Go for what you interested doing most.
