    It'll start to show in May when UCAS extra actually starts

    And I wouldn't be too pessimistic about the availability - linguistics is a lot easier to get onto than english (for some reason 18 yr olds are reluctant to start courses on subjects that they haven't already covered so courses like linguistics tend to be quite low on take up often filling up from english rejects)

    Contact some potential uni's directly - ask to speak to the admissions tutor and explain your grades/interest in the subject etc the worst they can say is no
    I know what you mean about people not wanting to start new courses because I'm the same. I think it's the fear of hating it and then being stuck with it for three years. If you do a subject you've been doing for the last however many years at least you know you like it
