    Hello, is it possible to go into clearing with my firm choice even though I have been declined? I don't want to go to my insurance...

    Do you mean can you apply to your firm choice through clearing?

    You'll have to get your insurance choice to 'release' you and then you can apply where you like (providing there are places) through clearing.

    It is a gamble though, you do have a guaranteed place at your insurance.

    The university has had your results since Monday, so they've had plenty of time to make a reasoned decision. If that decision is no, it's not likely to change. If you don't want to go to your Insurance, you would be better off looking for alternatives in Clearing (you'd need to ask your Insurance to release you) than trying to persuade your Firm to reconsider you.

    You need to be released from your insurance first

    This can take hours/days/even weeks

    Then you can apply anywhere


    If you are thinking about applying to your firm for the same course - they have had your results since Friday - they have spent time considering you - I would not recommend giving up anything on a chance that they will change their mind now

    You may as well stick with your insurance. It's extremely unlikely that your firm will admit you through Clearing if you've been rejected off the bat.

    I really wanted to go to my first choice but I got a D in Spanish so I have been declined but I also don't want to risk not having a place!

    If you have been rejected by your firm and have no new information to offer to them, then they're unlikely to accept you if you contact them. If you don't want to risk having nowhere to go then your best option is to go to your insurance.

    If you really really don't want to go to your insurance, then Clearing is going to be your best option, even if there is a risk. The worst that happens is you have to take a gap year (which can be a positive thing).
