On results day, if I get the grades required to meet my insurance offer, do I have the option of contacting other unis and possibly get a verbal offer before I self-release? I don't want to first self-release myself on results day and then end up at a uni which I'm even less interested to go to?

There is a possibility, but it’s not guaranteed they will give you any guarantees without seeing your entire UCAS application which they can’t do while you are not in adjustment or clearing.

I've talked with a few unis about this and I was informed that they can only see my UCAS application once I've added them as my clearing choice. So from what I know, verbal offers are made on the basis of your A-level results and how interested you sound in a particular uni's course.

If you really don’t want to go to your insurance choice then you should tell them now so you can be put into clearing straight away on results day.

I think you may have misunderstood what they're saying a bit.

Unis can see your UCAS application once you have a clearing number- you can only get this once you're in clearing. It is usually pretty hard to get a verbal offer on results day without one, although not impossible. Unis will generally prioritise talking to applicants with clearing numbers.

If you want a full choice of courses on results day, you'll need to self release before talking to them.

This isn't really necessary now that self-release is a thing.
