Hi, I was just wondering if you get above the asking trade for the uni you firmed would you be able to decline it and apply through clearing to a better university?

Yes, you can still release yourself into clearing even if you smash your grades and are accepted by your Firm.

In theory but in practice many courses and universities wont be available in clearing. If you looking at a top university very few of the courses will be available.

As above, because of two years of unflated grades, top Unis do not expect to have courses in Clearing this year.
It may be better to take a gap year and reapply for 5 new choices - you'll have time to go to Open Days, Visit Days and think about choices carefully, instead of making a panicky decsion on Results Day that you may then regret - the drop out rate from Clearing places is high.
