I actually changed my mind and added Reading and Nottingham so I do have 5 choices! I’ve got offers from Leeds and Reading and I’m thinking of Leeds as firm and Reading as insurance but I’m not sure yet; you?

Ah Reading is a good one!! I applied there last year (reapplying this year) and a professor of classics sent me a letter which none of the other unis did so I love them ahaha, they usually offer a grade lower aswell if firmed
And same I've got my offer from Leeds, they were really quick which the others are not, annoyingly
Thinking of firming KCL ( not getting hopes up on Oxford and I prefer KCL anyway) and insuring Leeds or Manchester as both have a similar feel, but same I'm unsure currently and we do have a ages to decide anyway lol
