Am I obliged to accept my insurance offer if I don't get accepted by my firm?

If I don't get the grades for my firm choice but I do get the grades needed for my insurance choice, can I still contact the university that I chose as my firm choice and ask them if they will still accept me on the course or is it compulsory that I accept the offer from the insurance university?

The rules say that you are contractually obliged to take up the CI place if you meet the conditions and are rejected by your CF choice.

But you can try contacting your CF, or alternatively go into Adjustment/Clearing. Your CI university will likely release you if asked, because they don't want to admit unhappy students. Bear in mind that if you don't reach the entry requirements of your firm, your chosen university will not automatically reject you, they will have decided to so will unlikely be willing to consider you.

You should not worry about Results Day at this stage. You might get the grades needed, or your CF university might accept you if you narrowly miss the offer.
