I have an AAB offer from KCL to study Political economy (i like the sound of this degree) and an ABB offer from UCL to study History Politics and Economics - this degree is a lot more historical and less economics, which I don't like the sound of. I don't know what to put as my firm since UCL is a better uni but i like the KCL degree more. I want to enter finance and would have done an economics degree but for a top uni, I don't think I could get an a* in Maths so wasn't sure to risk it because i knew it would be very competitive. Any insight ?

I do A level Politics, Mathematics and History (this is the order of most favourable a level to least) and I'm predicted A*AA for this order

I think you should go for the one you’re more likely to enjoy and will prepare you well for the career you hope to go into. From what you’ve said it seems like KCL seems more appropriate. Don’t get too hung up on which uni is “better”.

I'm not in your subject area, so I can't advise on course type, but I can speak for KCL's low student satisfaction. their admin is not only bad for applicants, but also for current students too. I had an absolutely awful 8 months from KCL processing my medicine application. If the degree content is significantly different, and more to your taste at King's, go there. but if there are options for you to choose modules at UCL and make it more suited to your interests, then i'd definitely be leaning to UCL.
