    I'm hopefully going Sheffield this year for Politics and Philosophy. I don't really want to go to my insurance anymore, originally I wanted to insure Sussex but Sussex had the same entry requirements as Sheffield and I didn't want to be that risky.

    If worst case scenario I didn't get into Sheffield but got into my insurance would I be able to apply to Sussex in clearing (my was there last year so I'm hoping it would be this year too) even though I've already rejected their offer before, would they take that into account and be less likely to give me a place through clearing. How long would it also take to be 'released' from my insurance?

    A) yes you can apply for places in clearing even if you turned down an offer previously

    B ) on average it takes 48 hrs in some cases it can take up to a fortnight. If you know NOW you don't want to go to your insurance then call them NOW to ask to be removed as ins choice. Getting released post-results is stressful and complex and best avoided.

    Thanks for replying Yeah I think I might consider doing that, I'll probably give it a week or two just to make sure I don't rush into a decision since I'm not 100% sure Sussex will be in clearing.
