i applied to 4 courses at the same university and 1 other uni.

Uni A:
-history and philosophy(BBC)
-politics and philosophy(BBC)
-Politics, religion and philosophy(BBC)
-philosophy, religion and ethics(BCC).

so my ucas prediction grades are BCC, so my teachers might give me that again after my mocks for CAG.

should I applied to the BBC courses and risk my place or go safe and pick option 4.

I'd recommend that you don't apply for more than two courses asking for grades above your predictions, plus three the same as your predictions.

Which course do you actually want to do - only you can decide that.

Can you firm one of your BBC choices and insurance on the BCC one? Pick the one you want to do the most and have the BCC as a backup in case grades don't pan out. No point having a firm and insurance that need the same grades or you'll get rejected from both if you don't do well enough.

I need to firm the one I want so I get a grade reduction. Thats why the grades are so low. They were initially like ABB/ABB.

Which do you want to do the most? Only you can really decide that. Philosophy seems a common theme but history, politics and religion are all very different kinds of subjects so down to you as to which you prefer. Is it like a dual honours type thing or is it a philosophical slant on history / politics / religion?

You'll have a better idea of what grades you might realistically be able to achieve too, based on any previous tests. Could always try a few mocks or have a good talk with your tutor perhaps?

i want to do the philosophy, religion and ethics but it may have less job prospects. If I picked history(although boring) I might be able to have more career options open

Then firm it. What's the problem in doing so?

Doesn't that apply to all your choices?

yeah it kinda does, except the history and philosopy one. I can easily find a job with a history degree, but might struggle with a philosophy only one.
