Only if they have places left. They may not - so that plan is very risky.
A better idea is - dont apply this year, work your socks off this year to get the best possible grades you can, then apply next year with known grades.

In addition to the above, you are only eligible for UCAS Clearing if you don't hold any offers. So you may need to decline them on Results Day - it's going to be risky.

York is a good uni, but I don't know how many of their courses enter Clearing. Have you looked earlier?

You won't find it now. Clearing 2020 has ended 3 days ago and most courses would have been filled by mid October.

Should have had a look back in August!

You need to look up UCAS Adjustment.

Another tactic you could consider is to apply to York anyway. You may get an offer at AAA and then you could have an Insurance choice at ABB.

But I wouldn't do that unless realistically you believe that you could achieve As in all your subjects.
