    If you don't qualify for the placement, it's highly likely the universities will automatically consider you for the course without the placement.

    If you want to do the placement, apply for the placement.

    Perhaps have at least one without a placement. I think it's important to have a safer choice in there as even if you get offers from all you want to have an insurance choice.

    Well, it depends on how your predicted grades fare against their entry requirements, rather than placement vs not placement. Naturally, if all the placement courses fall on/above your predicted, then apply to a few without placement.
