I don't know what my university options are???
Basically I'm taking 3 A-Levels: Economics (A2), English Lit (A2) and Geography (AS but planning on finishing it next year) and because this leaves me with 2 A Levels and 2 AS Levels by the end of this year I didn't bother applying to university because I assumed I would get no offers having only 2 full A levels. However now I'm really panicking because I really really don't want to take a year out and I'm wondering if there's literally any way I could get into uni starting in September 2016? Through clearing or something? Does anyone know how it works or what my options might be, I want to study something accounting/finance/economics related and I'm predicted grades A (Economics) A (English) and B (Geography). I don't really mind what university I go to I just really want to go this year! Or would it be worth waiting a year to get into another one?? I really don't know I'm freaking out any help or advice would be so so appreciated! x

wait till you get your results. If you get 2A's plus a B at AS then thats 290 Ucas points. Upi are going to have to search yourself for courses that might accpet that.
I note you dont have maths and that might eb a requirement on some courses. Again its for you to check. You could apply through extra or clearing.
That said I was put off by your post namely

1. Theres nothing to panic about. It is not a race.
2. This idea about not wnating to take a year out is ok, but going top any uni rather than the best one you can is foolish. When you go to Uni you could be putting yourself into £45,000 worth of debt. If you end up spending that money on a course or Uni you hate, when in fact you could have gone to a much better one its madness. A year is not long and you cna save some money up in the meanttime.
Stop panicking its a waste of time.
Decide whether you are willing to sacrifice going to a good uni so you can ho to a less good one now.
Uni will still be there next year.
You should be thinking about your employability after.
