    So it looks highly unlikely that I will get in to my firm choice and I despise my insurance choice.
    I have only just found out now that I would need to ask them to release my offer and that this could take quite a while. I naively thought that I would be able to decline it on the day.

    I really don't want to go to my insurance choice University and, after already taking one this year, taking a gap year and re-applying is out of the question.
    Has anyone ever rang around Universities in clearing anyway and managed to hold an offer without a clearing number? I understand that it's a long shot but I don't know what else to do.

    Firstly, why did you insurance a university that you did not like? You should not even place it in your application since you "despise" it.

    Secondly, it will not take that much time to be released. I mailed my insurance university to release me and they did so the other day. It would be much faster if you call them!

    Thirdly, you cannot get into clearing (or be accepted at all for that matter) without the clearing ID. It is the only way to view your UCAS application.

    I believe you should call your insurance early tomorrow and beg them to release you immediately. Nothing else you can really do, although you should have already called some days ago.
    It won't be easy with the results and all tomorrow, but it's your best bet!

    Hope that helps!

    Finally! Someone else that sees this the same way as I do.
