They're both perfectly fine recruitment route is just slightly different, BA History + GDL + SQE or LLB Law + SQE so it's an extra year for the history, if that doesn't bother you/you like the degree better go for it
Would Nottingham Law not put me at a disadvantage compared to UCL / Oxbridge Students though? If I got the grades would it not be a good idea to take a gap year?
Taking a year out to jump from Nottingham/KCL to possibly UCL and possibly Oxbridge is a waste of time given the employers you're aiming for. You'd be better off spending that time paralegalling or working in a client-side sector for a year. Full time work experience (as opposed to 'daddy let me shadow him for a week'-style work experience) is greatly valued by most law firms.
