I was just wondering if I were too have already accepted and firmed an unconditional offer from a university, meaning that I am basically into that university and it’s course, would there be any possible way for me too change my mind and go through clearing with the grades I receive from my a-level exams.

If you contact the uni and ask them to reject you, you'll enter Clearing (seeing as you have no insurance.) However, do this before August 10th, because after that it means they'll have to do it on results day and frankly, student that doesn't want to go there is of less importance than student who does.

You might have to take a gap year, though. Clearing is only for places not already filled, and the place you want might not be there.

Anyway, I think you can!

This is wrong information. See the link on the previous post. You can now self release into clearing. This commenced last year.

Before you release yourself into Clearing and give up your Firm offer, please confirm that a University is willing to offer you a place through Clearing on the course you want.

And as you appear to have been offered an Unconditional offer despite not having completed your A Levels yet (ridiculous!) you cannot use Clearing until you have all your grades in place unless someone is willing to offer you another Unconditional Offer despite still waiting for results.
