    Some universities may be willing to consider you for an ABB course with BBB but make sure to email before you apply - there's no point in wasting a UCAS choice on a course that won't consider you.

    I think the bigger problem at the moment is that you've still got quite a wide range of degrees you are interested in. Remember you have until 15th Jan to apply so take a bit of time now researching your different options and make sure you've picked the right course for you.

    Contact the unis concerned to make sure you wont get rejected outright.
    Find out if they will accept anything else such as an EPQ. That can make up for a grade if they will accept it.
    Consider retaking.
