If my maths are correct the following clubs are guaranteed promotion from Level 5
Midlands Prem - Newport(Salop), Sheffield
North Prem - Otley, Preston Grasshoppers
South East Prem - Sevenoaks
South West Prem - Exeter Uni, Old Reds(Bristol)
So 3 more places still up for grabs, maybe 4 dependant on you know what

If 10 go up. Then 3 from SE. 3 from SW. 2 from midlands and 2 from the North. In the SE. As long as they win probably 2 remaining games. Both Dorking and NW will go up. Dorking can even do 3rd place with one 5 point win. And still go up.

Correct Surrey Rugby that's the way it's looking - as regards who goes where a lot might depend on where the RFU (Or NCA?) place Guernsey SW or SE

Depends if they treat their home ground geographically or at Gatwick. I'd assume common sense would say SE because I am sure Guernsey themselves would fight tooth and nail to avoid the SW.

For the purposes of mileage Guernsey are treated as being based at Gatwick Airport.

However this is in a North/South level 4 split.

With the advent of SW and SE as 2 of the 3 level 4 divisions, I see no reason why Guernsey could not be treated as being based at Exeter or Bristol airports rather than Gatwick.

My reasoning for this - they are not geographically in the SE (or SW) so should be moved to whichever of the 2 logically has less teams.

Again, depends if Aurigny have flights at the right times. I know they have the proper jet (not those twin props) working the Gatwick route so there will certainly be more flights from Gatwick. I think it's probably just easier if the RFU stick to the current arrangements.

When did they confirm that best two 3rd places teams would be promoted ? I thought they reserved the right to pick last to on geography if need be and only top 2 in each league are confirmed as being promoted.

Absolutely no idea, however not to do so opens up all sorts of legal issues.

Not sure the RFU know themselves (or even if they are the right body to decide)

Blimey. If the rfu boys pick who they like to go up, we will definitely go into farce.

If it's picked by the RFU old boys club on geography, that's North Walsham and Blackburn out of the running then......

Makes sense.  
If 10 teams are required for the new structure above...
The top two in each of the 4 x Premier Leagues plus the 2 x Best 3rd placed teams across the same 4 Premier Leagues go up...
I think LSE Prem is in a very good place to 'take 3 teams up'. 
There are various quotes/confirmation on the shape of the new level 2 across other threads on this forum (particularly Nat 2 threads).

For the ordinary purposes of conversation, a superficial knowledge of many things goes further than an intimacy with one or two.
