    I've made my 4 choices, they are as follows
    AAA-AAB (I'm applying through A2B so that might be lowered), AAB, ABB, ABB.
    My predicted grades as AAC (C in maths, I blame that C on neglecting how much I revised maths) , should I use my 5th choice for the War Studies degree at Wolverhampton (BBC-CCC) or is that too low? It's the course with lower entry requirements that I like the look of.
    There is another university with AAB-ABB entry requirements which I would consider putting as my 5th choice, but I don't desperately want to go there and I've been told that I should choose an insurance university.
    I don't know if it's just me, but I don't feel comfortable with paying upwards of £30k going to a university which isn't my 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice in terms of how much I like the course and how good the university is. It's for that reason that I don't know whether I should choose an insurance university: if I did do terribly then I would resit (as that would be an option I assume) and if I did badly again then I'd apply to a university with lower entry requirements. I don't want to sound like a snob, heh sorry if I do.

    If you like the degree at wolverhampton then use it as an insurance choice, if not then you don't have to have five choices.

    Would you buy a £30k car if you didn't want to drive it? No, so don't apply to any uni if you wouldn't be happy to study there. Apply with four choices for now and consider adding a fifth later if you change your mind.
