I am applying for economics 2022 entry - however, my predicted grades are:

Maths (A), Further Maths (A), Economics (B).

However, I do have good GCSEs (4 9s, 4 8s, 2 7s and 1 6), and a strong personal statement. The issue is that with AAB, my choices for applying are very limited as most unis are AAA-A*AA. Do you know which unis will accept lower predicted grades? And if any with higher requirements still may accept AAB predicted. I do believe I can do better in the actual exams.

Please does anyone have any recommendations for where to apply?
I will probably do Southampton & City University as safe options but would like to apply for some higher unis as well? Considering Queen Mary's or Manchester as well - any tips? Would appreciate any help.

If by very good uni you mean for maybe top 30 in the UK for economics then sure.

Imo there's better unis you can be looking at. Durham have an AAB finance course (not Econ ik). Places like Southampton, Manchester, Sheffield would be better, QMUL has higher entry requirements afaik. If you're interested in more than just economics then economics joint honours courses tend to have significantly lower entry requirements which can be an option too.
