    Should I try calling universities even though I still have an insurance offer(which im not too pleased with), tell them i'm yet to receive a clearing number and see if they'll take me on a course?
    or do I just tell them the grades and apply when I've been released by my insurance if successful?

    Some universities will talk to you informally before you have your Clearing number, but some won't. You can try calling anyway, but nothing can be confirmed until you've been released and have your Clearing number as they need this to view your application. I presume you've already asked your insurance to release you.

    Well I wasn't released from my insurance offer until yesterday evening therefore I was entered in to clearing in the evening however I called up the unis and none of them asked for the clearing number. When they made offers I explained my situation and they just told me well its first come first serve basis.. So I suggest you call them ..

    I would call universities anyway and explain your situation. I don't know where you are looking to apply but Cardiff still have courses available
