    Good morning!

    The first thing I would do is start calling round the universities that have these courses in clearing, you can get his info from UCAS directly (http://search.ucas.com/).

    If you decide to look outside of London, we have a few similar courses available http://www.derby.ac.uk/clearing/

    Good luck in your search

    I already took a gap year so I'm not really looking to do a foundation year but if I have no choice, I guess I'll have to do it? :')

    You have options. Taking a foundation year isn't the end of the world at all and if it gets you to where you want to go and then seriously consider it. You'll be fine whatever choice you make.

    Hi there,

    Have you tired ringing any London universities and checked? Sometimes if you chat to them on the phone and explain your predicament they can offer you specific advice.

    If you would consider universities outside of London we still have a couple of places left on our Biology course. You can always get in contact with us on 03330 432 414 or can talk to us online using our Live Chat system to get personal advice about your Clearing situation.

    Good luck,

    Calling up universities to check if you're eligible would be a good start University of East London offer Biotechnology and Biochemistry, and Biomedical Science as part of the clearing options. Give them a call on 020 8223 3280 to speak to an adviser and find out more about your options. Hope this helps and all the best!
