    Yes but you will have to complete a UCAS application and pay the fee to be able to get a Clearing number.

    The only alternative, if the uni you approach agrees to use this process, is the Record of Prior Acceptance. If you have a particular uni and course in mind, you could try ringing them and asking them whether they would consider accepting you via this route.

    Hi there,

    You can still ring up universities and they can give you offers. All you would need to do is create a UCAS profile and the University of your choice will match this up.

    Our clearing team can talk you through the process and can give you advice about the courses we still have available.

    All you need to do is ring 03330 432 414 or if you would prefer to chat online you can use our Live Chat system.

    It is not too late for you to apply for university and enrol for September, just stay calm and find a course that is right for you.

    Be aware that you will need to get a reference attached to your application and that is going to be difficult at this very moment, when schools are on holiday and exams officers are very busy. You will need to complete a full application form.

    If there's something there that you like, give our callers a ring on 0116 373 6000 and they'll be able to talk you through the application process.

    Good luck!

    That is what I was afraid of. This is more or less not possible as my form tutor is on maternity leave...

    Should I just leave it and apply for next year?

    I'd say you will make a much better job of choosing the right course by applying next year than by doing it in a rush today.

    Unis can say they don't require a reference at this stage, but you will need to check. However, I agree with CLR that you are likely to get a much better outcome if you apply for next year.
