I achieved AAA in History, English Lit and Religious Studies last week. (I attended a below average state school.)
Unfortunately this meant I missed my Cambridge offer to study law, having paid for remarks which came back exactly the same (due to new remarking standards I suppose.)
I currently have an unconditional offer from Nottingham University for law to start in September which I am happy about but it's not something I really really want to do.
I understand that many Oxford applicants for Law will achieve A*'s at A level and will have already done so. However I spoke to their admissions office and was told that as I have already met their law offer, if successful at interview and at LNAT I would be given an unconditional offer.
I will be retaking English lit and potentially History exams if I do decide on a gap year but at the moment I'm just not sure whether I can stomach the risk.
I do have a potential offer of an internship in my MP's office in the House of Commons from September at the moment.
Any advice/anyone in similar situations?
