Hi, currently I'm having regrets about the University I am attending, I'm a second year Law student at Southampton. My grades at A-level were AAA. I'm having regrets of not even trying to apply to more top universities such as UCL, Oxford and Cambridge for example. Is there really any point of me having regrets? And is there any way of me applying to those Universities, or finish my current undergraduate?

The best you can do is a transfer into year 2 or 3. You wont have enough student finance unless ofc you are self financing.

If your grades are exceptional since A levels, then talk to the unis concerned. The time to do this was end of first year.
The entry grades for the above may well be A*AA. AAA wont be seen as making you a strong candidate by itself.

I don't know that there's a lot of point having regrets at this stage - you're almost two thirds through your degree! And Southampton is still a very good uni where lots of other people will have AAA - it's not like you're at Solent. If you're aiming for a career as a solicitor, your AAA will be helpful when it comes to applying for training contracts and you will not be disadvantaged due to going to Southampton.

Most top universities want A*AA, including UCL and Cambridge so they might be out of the question. I have regrets myself about not applying to certain places and I don't think that will ever really go away. But what you can do is make the most of your degree now, get excellent grades. You could always apply to do an LLM at a top university after you graduate. A lot of people I know at LSE went to other and often less prestigious universities for their undergraduate degree but did really well to get into LSE for postgrad!
