I think you need to check that those universities/courses take late applications. The general rule is "apply by January 15th guarantees you consideration" and "applying from this date to 30th June means you might be considered if there are places left/if we want to" kind of thing, but no guarantees. I don't know whether you just apply and hope for the best, or whether you enquire and then apply if they say yes. UCAS can answer that question if you contact them.
If you have no luck, there's clearing. UCAS website gives a much better description of what this is:
However, in short you can see what courses still have places and apply to them. The problem is your chosen unis/course might not be on there.
My advice would be to enquire (or maybe someone else on here can clear it up) as to whether you just apply or have to ask if there are spaces left first. Then, ask your teacher again when he's back or at the start of next term to write your reference. Send your application off if you can. If you get rejections due to lack of space or otherwise, consider clearing. If not, or clearing doesn't provide any good options for you, you'll have to re-apply this year I'm afraid. And if this becomes the case, please remember to apply in that "guaranteed" time-frame, not as late as this or you'll find yourself in another pickle like this.

All the courses you mentioned still accept new applications according to UCAS Search, but contact the departments first to make sure they will consider you.
