    I've just found a course that I would have rather put (IT management for business) instead of some of my choices . Sad times.

    Anyway, I am going on a gap year next academic year so my question is what is the earliest time I can apply for UNI for the courses starting in 2014? How do I get college references when I am not attending college?

    Lastly, there is a chance that I won't go on a gap year and I was wondering if I could apply for a course during clearing while holding onto my other offers.

    You can't hold offers and go into clearing. You need to reject afaik.

    Other possibilities are attempt to switch to another course at a uni you've got an offer with or apply for a january start, if available, for any unis you do fancy.
    Look into the optional modules on the courses you've been offered before doing anything though, you may be able to take a similar path to the course that you now prefer.
