Is there a high chance of getting 5 rejections for my uni choice?

I have a predicted grade of A*A*AA (A* in chem n bio)
My uni choices:
UCL, KCL, Imperial, Edinburgh, Manchester (All for chem/medicinal chem)
I'd be surprised if you didn't get a single offer. Although you'll be in a good position to use UCAS Extra if the worst comes to the worst.

3/4 spots will open up again if the scenario is conditional offers you don’t meet them then we know 5 rejections are coming your way but it’s all subjects to the grades, space and availability of the course and you meeting the requirements.

3 London choices is very risky given the demand for places there although Chemistry isnt massively in demand. Personally I would remove Kings for a less risky choice but it is down to you how risky you want to make it and how you would take having rejections

As above, applying to all three of UCL / KCL / Imperial is risky, simply because they get swamped with applications - not because they are 'better' (they aren't) but just because of the supposed 'glamour' of being in London.

I'd swap out one of those choice for another out-of-London choice like Bristol, Bath etc.

I'm not sure whether to swap UCL/imperial for Bristol though cause I prefer a Medicinal Chemistry course which is only offered by imperial (I applied for chemistry for UCL) But I just checked and Imperial's sch fees rose to 41k for international students which is incredibly expensive :frown:

Bath offers both Pharmacology and Chemistry for Drug Discovery.
