Yep folks, another quick question...

If you don't meet the grades to your firm and they can't offer you anything else are you fully obliged to your insurance or do you have to be released before you can dive straight into clearing?

All help appreciated, thanks in advance!

Err... you are fully obliged to your insurance, unless you ask to be released, at which point you can dive straight into clearing.

Edit: that is, if they release you. They might not, but most don't seem to kick up any fuss about it.

You have to be released first. If you are sure you don't want to go to your insurance, get released now, or you'll miss the better offers in clearing.

If you miss the grades for your firm and they reject you, but either you meet the grades for your insurance or they accept you anyway, you have to go there unless they agree to release you. They usually do because they don't want a student who doesn't want to be there when they could give the place to someone who does, but they will be very busy on results day and it won't be their priority, so it could take ages. As Dionysus said, if you're sure you don't want to go to your insurance whatever happens, ask them to release you now because good Clearing places get taken up quickly and you don't want to miss out.
