Does anyone know what the chances are of me getting in through clearing for one of the English Lit courses with 200 UCAS points? (I'm hoping for Philosophy and English Lit, but English Lit/English Lit and Creative Writing will be fine.)

The only reason my UCAS points are so low is because I'm really bad at exams whereas I do very well with coursework. There's usually a 1 or 2 grade difference between my coursework and my exams. For example, I averaged on Bs for coursework yet I got C/D grades in exams. In the end I got a C in English and Ds in RS and Psychology. (I finished college last year.) I have a B in GCSE English, so that's no problem.

If anyone knows anything about people with a low amount of UCAS points getting in, please let me know!

Thanks in advance.

If you're bad at exams why on earth would you want to go to university? Coursework is tiny percentage of the workload compared to exams.
