    I'm applying for maths at birmingham and aston
    Firm: Birmingham, AAA
    Insurance: Asont, ABB

    If my firm rejects me but my insurance gives me an offer, should I go through clearing to do a similar course at bimringham, my firm. I would want to do maths and computer science.

    Why did you put Aston as your Insurance if you don't want to go there?

    And if Birmingham have rejected you there's no point applying to them via Clearing. They already had your results and decided to reject you.

    (Assuming they do actually reject you in the first place. Many universities accept candidates with 1 or 2 grade misses anyway.)

    It's not that I don't wanna go there but I'd rather go birmingham as it more renown for maths
    I'm talking about applying for a different course in birmingham

    They are likely to have already considered a near miss applicant for alternative courses (especially any "maths with" options) before rejecting.
