If you don't have an art or design A level then you'll need to put together a portfolio of design and creative work in your free time. Is that something you can do? Talk to your teachers about making sure your UCAS application doesn't go off until January so that you have as much time as possible to work on your portfolio before you get any requests/invitations to interview.

As a backup look into applying to art & design foundation diploma courses at your local colleges/art universities. It's a 1 year course designed to help you explore different types of creative work, produce a banging portfolio and help you with creative university applications.

I'm only saying look into a foundation diploma as a backup - if you don't get any offers this year then it gives you a productive way to boost your portfolio and get an extra qualification if things don't work out.

What kind of work do you have? for a course like interiors then you'd normally have a lot of observational drawing/sketches, some 3D work/models/mockups, maybe some textiles work and one or two projects showing start to finish (so a brief, a mood board/inspirations, refining your ideas, a mockup and a final design). Your portfolio should show your creative process - how you take a task, come up with ideas, do research and develop your idea and come up with a final piece of work...that shows how "teachable" you can be.
