Hello! I’m in the process of applying to university, and I have 3 unis which I really want to apply to but each have the same entry requirements - is this ok or should I try to eliminate one?

Why should all your 5 choices have different requirements?

Three is fine if the grades match your predictions - it's not worth applying somewhere you don't want to go.

The usual advice for your 5 choices is :
1 'risky' choice - just above your predicted grades - ie. one grade and not in a vital subject
2 or 3 - at your predicted grades
1 or 2 - below your predicted grade
This gives you maximum flexibility for a) getting offers and b) having realistic Firm and Insurance choices later on.

So having three Unis with the same grade requirements is in itself fine - just make sure your other choices fit the suggested pattern above.

It depends on whether you are likely to achieve these grades. If so, its fine. If you are grades below it is very risky.
