The tags Competitive and Safe are categories under which the schools are divided. There are three categories in total: Dream, Competitive and Safe. 

Safe schools are the ones which have the highest possibility or assurance of you getting shortlisted. Competitive Schools are on the middle ground. They are not too easy to get in, nor too tough. Dream Schools as the name says are the schools which have a low possibility of you getting in.

The schools are divided into these categories based on the profile details that you put while taking the FREE School Explore Quiz here. 

Let me know if this helps or if you want any other information from my end.

In the context of study abroad applications, "competitive" and "safe" are terms used to classify universities based on your likelihood of getting accepted. A "competitive" university is one where your academic and extracurricular profile meets the high standards expected by the institution. These universities typically have stringent admission criteria and a lower rate of acceptance, making them highly competitive. 

A "safe" university, in contrast, is where your qualifications are above the average accepted standards. This does not diminish the quality of the institution but indicates a higher probability of admission. It’s a strategic move to apply to both types of universities to balance between reaching for the highest academic standards and securing a placement in a good program. This dual approach ensures that you maximize your opportunities for studying abroad, providing both aspiration and security in your choices.
