Hi, Im struggling on what choice to put fifth. Is it better to put a university fifth with similar entry requirements to my other choices or a univerisity that has much lower requirements?
Thanks

Hiya, I'd suggest 2-3 grades lower than your predicted in order to ensure that you've got an insurance.
At school, if someone's predicted A*A*A/A*A*A*, then our UCAS referee tells them to have an insurance that has AAA
If someone's predicted A*AA, then they should apply for an insurance of AAB
Something along those lines

You dont have to put your choices in order of preference - UCAS puts them in alpha-order.

See the bit in this TSR article about making sensible grade choices - How to Avoid 5 Rejections : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...ity-rejections

Hi northerngal,

It's completely up to you! Different advisors will tell you different things but I would say it is always good to have a 'secure' choice especially if the rest of your university applications are on/above your target grade where have you applied so far?

Good luck!

Hi northerngal,

Best of luck!

When making your final choice I would consider looking into student experience and how current students are finding the courses. I would also look into things such as the cost of living.

Take care,
Millie
