Hi - I'm currently submitting my UCAS now, but I have no idea what kind of unis I should apply to. I'm currently at A*AAA predictions; with that, how many unis of A*AA, AAA and AAB am I recommended to apply to? Thanks in advance!

I'd say 4 Uni's that are A*AA or AAA, then maybe 1 uni AAB for your insurance. Find a really good insurance choice that has low entry requirements.

You'll regret putting down too many low requirement universities, as you'll only need 1 for insurance.

Plus most uni's that require e.g AAB or ABB are in clearing anyway

Thankyouu!!! I'm just extra worried that I won't get any offers...since many 2020 applicants are deferring entry. The course I'm applying to is also quite competitive, especially when I don't have fm.

oxford,cambridge,imperial are the only ones that are super competitive to get offers from (they care about further maths + personal statements).

For every other uni, just getting decent predicted grades on your UCAS (which are close to the entry requirements) is all they care about, and for 2021 I doubt a person with your grades will find trouble getting offers from top universities

What course is it?

Don't apply to any unis that say they want FM if you don't have it

Hii sorry for the late reply - I'm applying for economics, which prefers fm (for some reason I chose to not take it on my first year, which I regret). I've been told that LSE, UCL and Warwick generally just prefers an econs application with fm sooooo

I think LSE expect people to choose FM for Economics if their school offers it and don’t accept many people who don’t have it.

I would check with their Admissions before potentially wasting a space on the UCAS form
