    Right, so I applied to some universities. I got offers from two I'd really like to go to, one was WAY out of my league but I thought I'd apply there anyway and they made me a high offer for a place. The other is much more in my league and I also got an offer from them.

    I put the really high uni as my firm, I DON'T think I'll get the grades, it was really just me being hopeful and an 'incase of a miracle'! I put the more realistic uni as my insurance, thinking that if/when I miss my top high choice I will just go to my insurance.

    When I did this, I got an email from the realistic insurance saying if I miss my firm they will be "considering' my application... "Considering." Does this means that in the likely event I miss my firm my insurance might not let me in? I am really worried I've just screwed this up now.

    Any advice, ideas help?!

    from the UCAS site...

    Insurance acceptance
    If your firm choice is a conditional offer, you can accept another offer as an insurance choice. Your insurance choice can be conditional or unconditional and acts as a back-up, so if you don't meet the conditions for your firm choice but meet the conditions for your insurance, you will be committed to the insurance choice. You can only have one insurance choice.
    The conditions for your insurance choice can be higher than your firm choice, but be aware that if you're not accepted by your firm choice, it's unlikely that you will be accepted for an insurance choice that requests higher grades.
    You don't have to accept an insurance choice - if you're not sure about any of your other choices once you have accepted a firm choice, you're not obliged to accept one as an insurance option.
    so from that i'd say yes they have to accept you
