    Okay, so im applying to do maths at keele (firm) and chester (insurance).

    The problem being i only actually want to go to keele. Chester is a nono, but say i dont get my grades for keele but i do for chester (quite likely) will i have to take this place or can i decline the insurance offer too and go through clearing?

    I heard that you have to withdraw or something but not too sure how to do that.

    Thanks in advance for replies.

    Fingers crossed i wont need to worry about insurance and clearing anyway :P

    I think it is possible to get released from your insurance and get put into clearing. However I think this practise is frowned upon.
    It is possible to withdraw for a year and reapply next year however. I think it involves notifying ucas and possibly your unis.

    Ask to be released by your insurance now so that you can go straight into clearing on the day should you not make your firm choice

    I've had no intention of going to chester at all, i just thought i had to have an insurance.

    Can i get the uni to withdraw me from the insurance now? And save the hassle if it happens to me on results day?

    You have to withdraw your insurance before you get your results in order to go through clearing.
