    I was gonna put University of Birmingham as my firm choice and Coventry as my insurance, however Coventry have just made me an unconditional offer. Economics at Coventry is ranked as 5th best in the country by the guardian, but in other league tables it falls a bit. Birmingham is quite well rounded on the league tables, and has that whole red brick, russell group image behind it I'm seeing.From anyone who has some good perspectives...do I make Bham my firm choice needing ABB, or do I make Coventry my firm and get an unconditional.I'm predicted A*BC (A* being in Economics)

    League tables are largely pointless. To give you an idea of how ridiculously different they can be, Edinburgh is ranked pretty poorly on national league tables, but highly on international league tables. Every company weights scores differently to produce a 'rank'.

    Have you visited Coventry/Birmingham? Don't just firm a university because it's unconditional. If you change your mind on results day, it's going to be one huge pain the ass.
