So I will need some guidance here.

This year applied to Cambridge,KCL and Warwick. (Law)
My A level predicted were.
English A
History A
Sociology A*
EPQ A (I have got an A)

My GCSE grades were.
ABBBBCCCCCC

I got rejected from Cambridge with no interview but got accepted to kings (firm) and Warwick (insurance).

However, I just got my History and English coursework back and got 80% in both. Also with improved performance there is a real chance of getting another A* or maybe two.

I would love to goto oxbridge but KCL is also nice and I don't want to ruin it. So is it a possibility to get my results (16th august) and if they have improved withdraw from places at Kings and Warwick and then apply next year to different universities e.g Oxbridge, KCL, ICL, UCL .ect

Secondly, if my grades come out as AAA* is it also worth withdrawing and reapplying..

If my grades improve, should I apply for Oxford instead of Cambridge since they didn't want me.

Lastly, is there I way I can defer kings until neat year then apply for oxbridge that year too

Laos how would all of this work, I guess I would need to take LNAT again and is this a bad idea.

If your grades meet the standard offer then it’s worth taking a year and reapplying. If nothing else it means that you can get on with a degree elsewhere knowing that you tried your best to get into Oxbridge.

Apply to the course and university that you think matches your interests and learning style best. Cambridge won’t hold a grudge against you for trying again.

You can’t hold your place with kcl. However if you explain when you withdraw that you want to reapply for 2019 entry then they might be able to explain their policy on reapplications.
