Hi!I don't want to go to my insurance offer for uni, as I have realised it is not the university for me. If I don't get the grades for my firm, which I really like, but instead get the grades for my insurance, is there a way that I can reject my insurance offer and enter clearing, preferably as soon as possible? Thank you

Yes, you can self-release into clearing at any point.
The most important thing will be for you to confirm first with your firm whether they will give you a place if you've slightly missed your grades.

You can

But there’s still time to change your reply from insurance to decline if you ring UCAS and the insurance university on Monday.

There can be delays on results day - you can only decline your place if your insurance has switched your offer to unconditional and not all universities are quick enough to sort that out by results day. That could delay you by a day or so in getting into clearing. Sorting it out now is a better option
