What Uni subject are you applying for?

And you do realise that RG is just a silly marketing concept don't you - that actually it has no real meaning at all?

RG doesnt make any difference. Non RG group universities like Bath. Lancaster, Loughborough are equally as good. The big issue is that Economics is hugely competitive especially in London as loads of students especially from abroad want to be in London. Look at provincial universities they are every bit as good as those in London but dont suffer the same demand due to location.

Predicted A*A*AA in business maths biology and further maths respectively.

Other 4 choices are Cambridge LSE Bristol Manchester (maybe) and now I need something with lower requirements

Have a look at places like Cardiff, Liverpool, Lancaster, Loughborough, East Anglia to see if they accept lower grades
I would also suggest Bath, Loughbough and Lancaster. And maybe Surrey

Also Sheffield and Exeter. Also RG but likely to be lower requirements than you are headed for.

I don't personally know but I would recommend an open day to see.

If you haven't seen them, here are the rankings for Economics.

Although take them with a pinch of salt. As said above, there are many excellent universities out there and you need to find the one that suits you best.
