I want to study English and I love the University of Exeter. However, I am torn between two courses. The standard, BA English course (AAA) or the BA English with Study in North America (A*AA).

Would it make sense to apply to both of them? I imagine the 'Study in North America' course would be very competitive, even though I am predicted A*A*A, so putting the other Exeter course could act as a safety net (allowing me to go to Exeter anyway).

However, my teacher says that applying to both is a bad idea as I am unlikely to get into one and not the other, as they will simply reject me or accept me into the university as a whole. What should I do?

Why not contact the university and ask - personally I can't see anything wrong with applying for both. You could ask if you can transfer between them.
