depends on what subject! and also it depends on whether u want to live in London or Outside london. Think about it...kings college have a better reputation in general but it has its dissadvantages too.
U can also take a gap yr and apply next yr ! if u really wana to go somewhere else. U can apply with ur actual grades and send ur application early september so u'll have a head start.

LSE didnt even go into clearing last year! ARGH!

If i were you i would go to KCL, as a degree from the University of London will look good when you are applying for a job! Although what course have you applied to?

btw, you can only go into clearing once the a-level results have been published

Your welcome - i think with LSE because they are harsh in accepting and rejecting people, that the people that do get offers work to get the grades, hence the reason why they don't enter into clearing.

If you really are that desperate to get into LSE you could write to the admissions tutor for management and find out if they would be will at accept you, the chances are very slim however. Or on the other hand you could take a year out and reapply next year to LSE, but you have to remember that even thou you will have the grades there is still a chance of them rejecting you - as they are rejecting a vast number of strong candidates this year!

Good Luck

Yeah you can, that is the only way you can enter clearing! Clearing is in place to give candidates a chance to get into uni if they didnt get into the university of their choice.
