Which university is harder to enter when the entry requirements are the same?Watch
I am aiming for BSc Physics. AFAIK, both ICL and Manchester have BSc physics with the same minimum requirements plus typical offers A*A*A. They both do not require interviews nor admission tests. What makes ICL/Manchester harder to enter? Does ICL/Manchester have a higher standard on your personal statement and the profile in general? Or does ICL/Manchester actually requires higher grades than A*A*A? How about UCL, Warwick, etc.?
If it's a competitive, oversubscribed course, you'll be scored against your cohort and an outstanding app one year might be merely very good the next.
Short answer: Answer apply where you prefer, don't second guess where it's easier to get in. If you're predicted in that area, apply to four choices and wait and see what offers you get. Save your fifth choice as a safety or very ambitious pick.
