There’s thing called Google, if you want to find something they have a cool feature called the ‘Search Box’, you can pop what you want to see inside this magical box click search/enter - you won’t believe the next part - you get results with what ur after!!! Clever init?

In actual fact, googling last year's clearing vacancies probably won't work very well

If you like the CS courses at QMUL and City you could contact them and ask about switching now. Failing that, you could decline all your offers and apply to CS cours s via UCAS Extra next year. And after that there's clearing.

If you don't want to do it, then don't.

Just wait for UCAS extra or clearing.

If that doesnt work take a gap and apply the next year.

For September 2019, UCAS Extra only opens in early-mid 2019 (I can't remember exactly when). Once that happens, you could decline your offers and then apply to UCAS Extra to a different course.

I was going to suggest taking a gap year and using it to decide what you really want to do at university. Remember, time spent thinking clearly is never time wasted!

No, Extra opens in a couple of months for entry in Sept 2019.

Meanwhile, as ageshallnot suggested, have you asked your current universities if you can transfer to their CompSci course? Assuming your A-levels (or equivalents) meet their subject entry requirements...
