What do you mean you are avoiding it?

Maybe you are in shock or denial?

What is it you wish to do?
What were you studying?
What were you predicted?
Did you have an offer and if so for what?
What did you achieve?
If you underachieved then do you understand why?
Could you do better if you tried again?

Ignore what everyone else is doing and think about what is best for you.

The worst mistake you can make is jump onto a course out of desperation.

If you don’t know what you want to do DON’T apply for the sake of it. Take some time, apply for some work in an area you’re interested in and see where that takes you. You can re-apply in a year or two once you know what you want to do or take a training route through work. (Example: my A Levels were shocking, I went to work for a local contractor and a few years later started a part-time quantity surveying degree fully sponsored by employer). Also worth noting that you don’t have to apply through UCAS to do it this way and don’t have to meet the points required.

I’m not really in shock, I knew I would only get one grade, I don’t know, I’m honestly so confused why I am doing this, I know what I want to do but I’m literally just avoiding everything right now

If you want advice then you need to give more information. I asked the relevant questions to ascertain what your situation is.
At some stage you are going to have to do something. It would be better if you understood your options and identified what you actually want and what was realistically the best move in your situation. You can get out of it, but it will take a bit longer.

Not sure what you mean by avoiding clearing? You dont want to o to a clearing uni or you want to bypass the clearing process?

With 1xB then I dont think clearing is the answer. Take a few days and chill then you might feel able to provide more information and think about what your options are. People have been in worse situations.
