    I have applied and choose my firm and insurance. For Business Information Systems and Business and ICT.

    However, when I first started I wanted to study law. But got talked out by parents and staff at my center. But I want to do law again.

    I have two problems.

    My UCAS Points are going to low I am doing two A2 Predicted B in both 200 Points. An AS predicted C 40 Points. However I got Two E's last year at AS another 40 UCAS. But I want to apply for SHU hallam and their UCAS Points is 300. However I applied for course BIS which for 340 and got offered 240.

    The second problem I have is my Personal statement mentions noting about law apart from the work placement I did.

    Anyone got any advice? Is best to just re apply next year

    I'm not sure how much this will help.. but when I first applied on UCAS I applied for Civil Engineering, and accepted the conditional offer .. I later changed my mind, and sent an email to the admin staff/tutor of the university saying that I felt I was more suited to Biochemistry.. and a few lines explaining.. (I didn't write a new personal statement or anything)
    And I had a new offer (for Biochem) very soon. I'm not sure about the grades though. For this uni, the entry requirements for Civil Eng were higher than Biochem anyway.

    All the best! =D

    If you want to keep the same unis you can ask them to consider you for law. It's worth a try as they might agree, and if they don't you can take the gap year and lose nothing.

    Alternatively you can look into Extra or Clearing.
