Take your time and apply when you're ready to, if you choose to go to uni. If you can't think of something you want to study full-time for 3-4 years, don't apply. It's a big investment in time and money.

You have about half a year until exams, my advice is to study your arse off to achieve better grades and then get in through clearing to some decent unis. I doubt any decent unis will give you offers with those predicted grades honestly

Applying after you get your grades would be more straightforward, you're not relying on predictions and you already know what you achieved. Although it would be good to start coming up with a plan for a gap year.

If you're applying through Clearing for 2021 entry, you will still need a UCAS application ready to go, complete with personal statement and references. So don't leave it too late.

Try to remember you're not going to be 'locked in' to a certain career path just from what you do at uni. What you do outside your course can be just as important anyway.

Are you sure Unis for you? Also what do you wanna be when you’re older?

What do you want to do? There are literally tons of study options to pick from. And my advice is to get some university prospectuses first of all and then make a informed decision. Chat to some former uni students about their experience of university courses too. Do some online research on the website looking for up to date course information as well. Make notes. Make sure all of your questions are answered.
