    Hello,

    Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to still get into Clearing even with an unconditional firm from the Insurance? Basically once I realised I hadn't got into my firm I realised I didn't want to go to my Insurance due to it's close proximity to where I live, I'd rather move further away. I achieved highly enough to get into a number of other Uni's but I'm unsure how or if it's possible ot now apply for them.

    You can go through Clearing if you want, but you need to contact the university you currently hold a place with and ask to be released. This can take time, as much as a few days. Unfortunately you will lose you current place, and there is a risk that you will not get a place in Clearing (in which case you would take a gap year).

    You will have to ask your insurance to reject you before you can enter clearing and this can take up to a week. A university in clearing cannot offer you anything (and shouldn't really talk to you) unless you are in clearing.

    As mentioned, you call uni and tell them to get released. It is straighforward but sometimes uni's do not want to release student and make the process longer than necessary.

    To make sure that you have a place you have to start calling other universities and ask about the possiblity of you becoming a student there.

    Tehnically, the Universities should not speak with you unless you are in clearing but that rules are for the Universities. The rules exist to make sure that universities are not nicking students from other universities. But there is nothing about you contacting them about your future, alctually YOU ARE FREE TO INITIATE CONTACT WHENEVER YOU WANT with any Uni you are intrested in.

    If you do not want to have a gap year you have to pick up the phone and make sure that it won't happen . If you make a deal with university over the phone, then you are sure that when you finally get released to the clearing the uni will accept you. The sooner, the better: the amount of available free places is shrinking.
