For my AS Levels, I got AAC (and I got an A for Portuguese a year earlier)Currently, I'm applying to university for a business management course and my current choices are:1- King's College London2- Queen Mary University of London3-City University of London4-Surrey University5-Brunel UniversityI have resat my english exam (for which I have gotten a C) but I am not sure I will be able to get an A for my resit exam and so I am not confident in getting into any of my universities except for Brunel. I am thinking about changing my choice from Queen Mary to SOAS university and take the Business Management course, would that be advisable?

What sort of English qualification are you doing? CASS (City University), Surrey, Brunel only require a C for GCSE English, whilst the others require at least a B. Also, if your goal is to work in finance or business I'd recommend trying to get into top business schools (e.g. CASS, KCL, Nottingham are some), due to their huge connection, networking and general opportunities they give to their students more so than other universities.
