Identical offers

My 2 favourite uni’s have given me the same offer. I’ve got a lower offer from a third but I don’t really want to go there.
If I put my favourites as my firm and insurance, if I just miss my grades will my results go to my insurance for consideration? I think one of them might be more lenient so I’m thinking of putting that one as my insurance.

I did this! May be worth emailing each uni to see if they have any particular policies - eg. I applied for a masters with a grade higher than the bsc, and they said that if we miss the grade for the masters, they will accept us onto the bsc anyway and then obviously you can switch when you get here (that is just an example, I am at Sheffield) but yeah many unis will not only be lenient if you put them as first choice but so will the insurance! I would just say put your fave one first as it would be hard to switch if you did get the grades youre hoping for.

Your results go to all 5 of your choices.
If the offers are idenical, do you have any preference over course or locaction? If you do, firm that one as it would be a shame to miss out on the offer
Completely fine to firm and insure identical grades if the other offers are not of interest to you. As above, all your choices get your grades and either your firm or insurance might have more leeway on results day.
