I have obviously 5 choices, 3 of them I’m likely to be accepted to, but 2 unis that are my top choices but are a bit out of my reach in terms of entry requirements. I know that I can apply to clearing if they don’t accept me, but if I’m accepted to any of the other 3, can I reapply to the top 2 while keeping my other options open in case they don’t accept me again?

You can't use Clearing whilst you have a confirmed place, no.

However you can certainly look around in Clearing and see what is available. If one of your aspirational choices had a course available that you wanted, you could call them up to see if they were encouraging before releasing yourself from your place and physically entering Clearing.

If a Uni doesnt accept you in the main cycle its unlikely that they will want to accept you at Clearing.
