I received an offer from University of Birmingham(A*AA), Aston(BCC) and Lancaster(ABB) .If I pick uob as my firm, they will let me get a lower grade, if i firm Lancaster i get guaranteed accommodation. I don’t know if i will make the uob offer requirements. What should i put as my firm and insurance?

Where do you want to go? Wouldn't it make sense to choose based on that? Everything else is just finances/logistics based on where you would prefer to go.

Which course do you prefer? That should be your primary consideration.

Hi,

Congrats on all your offers! Choosing your firm and insurance choice for university can be a stressful time though. There are so many things to think about.

I would suggest that you consider your priorities and what matters most to you in your university experience. Is it the reputation of the uni, the course content, the location or something else? Also, be realistic about your predicted grades and the likelihood of reaching the entry requirements of your firm choice. The benefits of each offer need to be looked at as well. Guaranteed accommodation may be a significant advantage in first year to minimise stress when going to uni. If that is important to you, then firming Lancaster might be a good choice. My best advice would be to choose an insurance choice that you would still be happy to attend if you don't meet the requirements of your first choice.

Good luck with your decision :smile:
