    You could:

    1) Get a job and either not go to university, or maybe go in a few years time.
    2) Get a job and re-apply for next year.
    3) Get a job and do some new qualifications with a view to applying for some other course that might interest you.

    Try and start a new course next year but try and complete this year otherwise it will look like a waste, do as much as you can

    my advice assuming you did physics, to look for engineering courses, or mathematical physics.
    Pure can be hard for some ... it was for me ...
    Luckily I had choices for 1/2 of my degree and I did not pick a single pure course from the options.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
