If i dont acchieve my firm offer but meet the grades for my insurance, would this mean i have to accept my insurance offer? or could i go in to clearing?

If you're close to your firm grades you can call them up and try to get in - I would say this is less likely at the higher tier universities but I have a friend at UCL doing Law who got AABB and missed the AAA offer but they still accepted him

Not so sure about the clearing thing, I think you need to withdraw your application or something.. Or phone them up and moan down the phone untill they withdraw their offer and you're allowed to get into clearing

As far I know, you have to have no acceptances to enter clearing. So if you miss your firm (and can't beg your way in), but meet your insurance, you are obliged to take your insurance. If you want to enter clearing, you have to call your insurance and ask to be released.

I'll check though.

You cannot be accepted/confirmed as attending any university if you plan to enter clearing. So, you have to be released from your firm and/or insurance.

yes, you have to ask the university has to allow you into clearing, which they probs would do. but why put them as insurance if you didnt want them at all?

No, they don't have to.

Unis can release you if they want to. They don't have to, and they can take their time about it.

I think he means the uni have to release you (ie, they have to before you go into clearing), rather than they have to as in they have to respect your decision and have no choice but to release you. :P
