In this paper, we prove a partly clustering phenomenon for nonlinear Schrodinger systems with large mixed couplings of attractive and repulsive forces, which arise from the models in Bose-Einstein condensates and nonlinear optics. More precisely, we consider a system with three components where the interaction between the first two components and the third component is repulsive, and the interaction between the first two components is attractive. Recent studies [10-13] in this case show that for large interaction forces, the first two components are localized in a region with a small energy and the third component is close to a solution of a single equation. Especially, the results in the works [12,13] say that the region of localization for a (locally) least energy vector solution on a ball in the class of radially symmetric functions is the origin or the whole boundary depending on the space dimension 1 <= n <= 3. In this paper we construct a new type of solutions with a region of localization different from the origin or the whole boundary. In fact, we show that there exist radially symmetric positive vector solutions with clustering multi-bumps for the first two components near the maximum point of r(n-1)U(3), where U is the limit of the third component and the maximum point is the only critical point different from the origin and the boundary.
