So I used to assume that you could apply to as many universities as you liked but since starting my a levels I have found out that you get a maximum of 5. I have a list of 5 universities I am planning on applying to but they all have similar entry requirements for the courses.
Is it worth applying to one course that has low entry requirements just in case I don’t do well? I’m motivated to work and I know I will work hard but I’m not sure if I should just on the off chance I don’t do as well as expected.

I didn't get good grades for university so my choices were a little limited. I had a B in maths and C in chemistry and physics. I took a gap year so knowing my grades i applied to 3 which matched my grades for example their requirements were CCC or BCC and i applied to 2 which had requirements a bit higher in case i got lucky. I would suggest having a back up just in case. You never know what can happen on the day of exams. Hope that helps

I'd recommend choosing one with lower entry requirements but only if you would genuinely be ok going to that university. So if most of your current unis are AAA or AAB, it could be worth finding one that is ABB.
