If one was to get below the entry grades of uni to study law but still gets in will he be limited by what he could do for instance lets say one was to get BCC but gets into uni what wanted AAA would their A levels limit them for what they could do even though they would be going to a top law uni with good connections

In this somewhat unlikely scenario, the only thing limiting the person is their own capabilities. Once you're into the uni you can do as well as it is possible to do, regardless of past A level or GCSE achievements

Would you suggust in this senario that they should resit those 2 A levels they got Cs in at uni as i know A levels do play a big part in employment in law

In an environment as competitive as law, every advantage can become imperative. Therefore yes, I would definitely suggest retaking the A levels in terms of employment prospects (on the assumption you would retake them after your uni course, as some unis don't accept A-level resits for law)

resists are irrelevant as the date of resit would be glaring if an organsiation was anal aobut UCAS points at level 3 as to be looking in great detail

UCAS needs to try and take better enforcement action against those organisations misusing the points system (i.e. unless you are an awardign body, HEI , FE provider or UCAS themselves you should not be using them )

no it's a resit after cashing in the orginal award , you have to declare the original grade as well.

No, sort out your degree, your A-levels are practically worthless now, and resitting is pointless.
