I am applying for Computer Science and have already sent my UCAS application, however I left one space spare. My predicted grades are A*AB in Computer Science, Maths and Chemistry respectively.

I applied to:
Nottingham (offer - ABB)
Southampton (offer - A*AA)
St Andrews
Leeds

Any suggestions for a 5th choice?

Are you thinking of using your 5th choice for something a bit riskier now that you've got 2 good offers?

Edinburgh?
Imperial?
Manchester?

Sussex, Liverpool, Cardiff?

Ideally this is what your five university course choices should look like on Ucas:
1 'risky' choice - just above your predicted grades - one grade and not in a vital subject.
2 or 3 - at your predicted grades
1 or 2 - below your predicted grade

Manchester wants triple A*, same for Edinburgh. Imperial is A*A*A and from what I've seen is extremely competitive.

I'd like to go for a riskier choice but at the same time I'm hesitant. I had emailed Bristol (requires A*AA though the A* is in maths) and their admissions department said it would be a rejection.
