    Your firm is unconditional so you don't have an insurance choice any more. If you get released from your place you'll be in Clearing. Have you checked with the insurance uni that they'd still offer you a place in Clearing?

    Ucas is being very slow to update this year, so there is very little you can do.

    Have you spoken to your insurance, and made them aware of the situation? Are they holding your offer for you?

    As your firm has turned unconditional, your insurance has disappeared. You would need to contact your insurance to check if they can offer you a place in Clearing.

    Updates on UCAS can take some time.

    It sounds like UCAS hasn't yet processed you being released from your firm yet. This is perfectly usual- as it usually takes at least 24 hours for everything to be processed at this time of year.

    If you are waiting on UCAS, you should be able to speak to them, and see how long it will take for your track page to be updated. You can then keep your insurance choice informed.

    Have you contacted your insurance to see if they will accept you through clearing?
