    Ok this has been on my mind for a while now.

    i am applying for chemistry F100 at
    St.Andrews
    Warwick
    UCL
    Bristol


    Now these are all high requirements so i need the 5th to be a good solid insurance.

    For background reference i am doing (A2)
    Maths (A)
    Chemistry (A)
    and Physics (B) but is on borderline

    as you can see the physics really plays a pivotal role but i should get it to a B and possibly an A with alot of work.

    I just am very confused on an insurance option around the BBB/BBC range just to lower possibility of 5 rejections.

    I would like to send off tonight so quick responses will be invaluable and greatly appreciated :yep:

    you're unlikely need an insurance for chemistry - there's often clearing places for it even at very good universities because its so unpopular :yep:
    so would you say i could get into warwick with a BBC (the worst it would be). That doesnt sound right to me

    I think what he's saying is just put whatever you like for the last choice no matter what grades it needs, because you're capable of getting them and good universities enter clearing for Chemistry because it's so unpopular.

    If you're looking for BBB then birmingham would be good, loughborough and bath have good departments too but I'm not sure what they're typical offers are...
    Is it also the case that i can send my UCAS application with 4 options and then a 5th after some research? I just want to get it in and if i can instantly then i will.

    York is a good choice. I got a BBB offer for Chemistry, very good university both academically and generally. All round good'n.
