I achieved AAB at A2 and missed my firm offer which was AAA/A*AB.
I took Math, Further math and economics, getting A's in math and economics.
My question is, if i take a gap year and apply to uni next year will I get offers for AAA places. I know this sounds silly but sometimes uni's give slightly lower offers or perhaps because i have already achieved my grades they know its a sure bank.
My firm was bristol law and this is the university I'm mainly talking about. Any help would be great.

Yes universities are in need of students so I think they would definitely give you an offer as you are so close. Take it from me (retake student) I still got lower offers from very oversubscribed course/university to the same as I had applied the year before despite them raising the asking grades so go for it. Although remember that tuition fees and payback scheme aren't set if you go next year, exams are getting harder as well as the next round of exams are the last in most series I think as they are developing new specifications.

I'm not really sure, if they rejected you this year not sure if they would just reject you again It might be worth a shot to try though, You'll have 5 options again so it may be worth trying it, the worst they can do is say no. And then you can use your other slots to apply for AAB courses, did you try looking in clearing this year? At least on results day there were some pretty good universities and courses that still had spaces available!
