Trust me, get a better grade in maths. You don't want that to be your limiting factor down the line.

If they say they want grade 6 in maths then it would be a waste of a UCAS choice to apply for Law there. So if you don't want to retake your maths, you have 2 options. The first is to apply for a different course at UCL (History, for example, only requires a 5 in Maths) and then convert to Law post graduation (currently you can do this via a one year GDL although this is changing). Your second option is to apply for Law degrees at different unis such as KCL

That's ok, I'm not at uni but I used to work as a careers adviser which is how I know a bit about Admissions. My kids went/go to Lancaster, Birmingham & Exeter

I would say you should retake, however, you should still apply to UCL, I got a 4 in English language and I currently have 4 offers and waiting on last one, so there's still a chance!

Yes but did you get into UCL with a 4 in English Language???
UCL is extremely competitive, and they have explicitly stated that they want a 6

LSE is only one choice out of five, but unless you are Asian, do not get your hopes up.

Kings want a B in Maths for Psychology but do not state that they want a B in English Language, which is why you were eligible for an offer

Under English language requirements it’s s band D which is a B IN GCSE

I think that the English language requirement you are stating applies to International students, and in any case I cannot really comment on why King's might have made an exception in your case without seeing your whole UCAS application. There are many many examples of people on TSR not getting offers at their chosen unis due to lacking the stated minimum requirements, so it remains very risky advice to suggest that OP should apply to Law at UCL without meeting the stated GCSE maths requirement. With respect, Law at UCL will be more competitive than Psychology at Kings, (which only started running the course in 2015) and is less likely to be lenient with their GCSE or any other requirement.
