I have applied to my 6 universities for courses, is there any way at any point for me to change what course I have applied for, even if I have been accepted?

I heared about a thing called "clearing" what is this, would this be a way of applingy for a course at a university I haven't applied to?

I think you have to wait for results then cancel your place. Only then I think can you enter clearing.

I tried to do this last year but was unsuccessful and am now on a gap year.
best thing to do is contact the unis asap.

yeah, I have just contacted the uni.

I want to change from law to politics.

the politics one is slightly easier to get in and much much more interesting (ideologies and stuff).

I'd like to put it as second choice next to nottigham law (i'm sure i'll pass their test)

1) get into LSE for gov and econ
2) change to phil and econ before arriving
3) change to phil, logic and the scientific proccess during first term

-or just take a gap year and re-apply...

You could try contacting the unis u applied to, sumtimes they let you change course, they did at UMIST for me, otherwise you can decline all your offers and go into UCAS extra which starts in april where its like pre clearing thingy, look on the ucas website for info.

You could decline all your offers and then enter ucas extra where you are allowed one additional choice but it depends how popular the courses/unis that you are applying to are as to whether or not they would have any places left for UCAS extra applicant - you would have to contact them directly to ask about this.
If you accept offers then cancel them after your A-Level results then as far as I know you CANNOT enter clearing, you will have withdraw from the whole UCAS scheme and apply next year. If you didn't get the grades you needed for your offers then of course you could...The only way to be able to reapply this year is to decline all your offers.
The best course of action, as many people have already said, I think would be to contact the unis direct and see if they will change your offers/consider you for a different course if you have not been made an offer yet - but with a personal statment geared towards Law you may have to be prepared for a bit of grovelling I think....

Did you not have the grades to apply for the course you want? Or have you just changed your mind about it since applying?......sounds like a good plan though

Yeah, I've changed my mind.
gov and econ is more popular thatn phil/logic/scient. process... I have predicted 776 at HL. 37 points total out of 42. Standard offer is 666 at HL and 38 points out of 45, so I'm not sure...
