you could either go through clearing or adjustment. there's more info on UCAS about either but essentially I don't think that you would have to go to your insurance if you didn't want to(however there is a policy where universities do have to 'release' you to go through clearing, and depending on which it is sometimes they can drag their feet)

If you are close to your conditional there is still a reasonable chance they will take you in all but the elite unis.
If you are rejected by your firm, then it auto goes to your insurance, but you can decline that if you have to. That means you can have a quick look on clearing, but cant officially enter it. If you see a course you prefer, talk to their admissions and they might give you an indication although no official processes can take place. If you decide you want to change, then reject your insurance and go into clearing. They cant force you to go.

From this year UCAS are providing a self release feature, so you can do it from track rather than asking them. That would put you into clearing and enable you to proceed with your new preferred course. This should be to your advantage by speeding up the process.

also in addition to the above if you dont want to go to your insurance choice why have it. You can asked to be released frim your insurance choice and then go straight into clearing. Your insurance choice is meant to be somewhere you WANT to go should you be rejected by your firm.
