    Yes, I think it's too late because freshers start next week. You can try looking for clearing courses on google. You can always apply for next year

    How do I get a clearing number?
    You would need to apply through UCAS to get a Clearing number, and that's likely to take a while to process so it will be too late by then.

    Instead, you should contact unis directly. If they like your application and still have spaces then they can accept you - they will get you to fill in a form called an RPA (Record of Prior Acceptance) which they will use to confirm your place.

    It isn't too late but it's very nearly too late, so you do need to move quickly.

    If you are not sure then take a gap year - there's no need to rush into anything. And applying for 2017 will give you more time to research what you *do* want to do.
