    You have to wait until results day.

    A lot of perfectly respectable universities rely on clearing, and would be more than willing to discuss the "art of the possible" before results day. This means you can do some research and have your preferred option on speed dial on results day - while everyone else is still running round like headless chickens.

    You can call now and ask about possible vacancies and your expected grades but they might not be able to make any promises or forecasts about what will be available next month.
