I'm not thinking of clearing but I'm just a bit confused about the whole process and had a few questions.
1) does it involve switching to a different course to the one you were planning to apply? As an example, if I was considering, say, studying chemistry at uni, and then got my results and did not meet my required grades, and then went through clearing, would I have to study a different course? Is it possible that I will still get to study chemistry but just not at one of the 5 universities I originally applied for?
2) Does the clearing place only accept people with the correct a level subjects?e.g., if one of the clearing places was environmental sciences and originally required biology and chemistry a levels (I realise this is unlikely, but just I'm saying just in theory) would they still accept me if I only had, say for example, a chemistry a level?
many thanks in advance

sometimes you find the exact same course elsewhere. In the UCAS search box type 'chemistry'.
No you don't the 'correct' a-level *unless* they specify, which unfortunately for science subjects they do -excluding geology and environmental science as usually they only need 1 science subject- , but phone up the Uni, explain the course you want to do, ask for a place and give them your grades/results.
