current choices for 2021 entry (current y12 student) are econ and management @ Bristol, business analytics or economics @ Exeter, International business @Warwick, Business with decision analytics @Edinburgh and Management science @UCL.

Anyone got an insight in what those degrees are like eg courseload, how much maths is involved, which ones are ranked best, location etc (and yes i've done my research on their websites, league tables etc)

There isnt a best. What matters most is what you prefer not anyone else and rankings and reputation are pretty meaningless. The first thing you need to decide is which course you intend going for. Putting 5 different courses doesnt look too good. Another issue you need to decide is whether you want a big or small city. UCL and Bristol are big city universities whereas Warwick and Exeter are campus universities. Will you feel comfortable in London. It is sometimes described as a marmite place. You either love the excitement or you hate the hectic pace.

If you are looking into Economics most leading universities will require A level Maths usually grade A and Warwick is known to have a Maths heavy Economics course.

As far as location the really very much is down to personal choice. How far or near to home you want to be only you can decide and your universities are scattered all over the UK.

Warwick is a campus university several miles outside Coventry and most of its first year accommodation is on campus. Exeter is also a campus university but the campus is within walking distance of the city. It is an extremely green campus and that is something for you to think about. Most first years live on campus. It is in a small city. Bristol university is very much of a city university in a fairly large city and very few students live on campus. Many of its halls are over 2 miles away. UCL is in the heart of London in Bloomsbury. Again much of its first year accommodation is a walk or underground ride away. It is totally different to your other choices. Edinburgh I know very little about other than it is the capital of Scotland and is quite a large city something similar to Bristol.
