No.

Do you want to spend 3-4 years, followed by a career, doing 'something random'?

No...

You don't "apply for something random", chances are you'll hate the subject you're going to study, drop out and waste everyone's time (and your money). This sounds like a recipe for disaster, and you should probably question the real reason as to why you are going to university after saying "should i apply for something random?".

If you can't get onto your chosen course, then ask if the university has the option for you to do a foundation year. If it's a no then resit your A-Levels.

EDIT:

I just read through some of your posts and you've switched from management to graphic design? and now you want to pick science? You're all over the place and should probably take a gap year before making any more impulsive decisions.

Look into a foundation year in which case - check the university's website to see if they offer such a thing.
