Yes-through 'Adjustment' - it's like clearing but is for people like you who hold an offer but want to change to a 'better' uni. Most unis will be full though (Note: to be eligible for this you have to EXCEED your firm offer). There is a separate vacancy list for adjustment and is not as well advertised so you won't have the benefit of online search lists etc

There is more info here: https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu...etter-expected

If you don't exceed your firm choice grades but still want to try another uni, you can ask your firm to 'release' you into clearing. (They can say no, but are very unlikely to because they know you aren't interested in going there). Once you are 'released' you do not hold your place any more at your original uni and so you won't be able to go back. There's nothing to stop you from checking vacancies though before going into clearing though

There’s no vacancy list for adjustment

And there’s no need to ask a firm choice to release an applicant into clearing anymore. Once an applicant has an unconditional firm and clearing opens in July they can release themselves into clearing instantly using the “decline my place” function on ucas track.

Some universities will accept released applicants back through clearing if they change their mind. It’s at their discretion but it’s fairly common.
