    Apply through extra or clearing?
    I know southampton went into extra for economics (AAB)

    I'm no expert in this area but I am aware that some of the better universities either prefer candidates with further mathematics (because the course is that way inclined) or attract a large proportion of applicants that offer it. You don't offer it and that may disadvantage you if you apply to such places after a gap year. You may end up where you are now, which might not be good use of a year.

    You could always do Further Maths in a gap year.

    That's what I would suggest. Just do Further Mathematics during your gap year and then apply. That will give you a very good chance of a place.
