    Hi,
    I applied to universities A and B this year. I got an offer from B, but was rejected by A - which was kind of my first choice. I plan to take the offer from B, but ask for it to be relegated until 2013 entry for a gap year in industry. If I, however, try my luck again with a new application for 2013 entry to university A, what happens? Does the previous offer from B cancel automatically? Will they both hold good? Or maybe I lose both (obviously unwelcome, and I don't know if B would admit me in the new cycle)? Would appreciate someone speaking from experience.

    It is very simple: you cannot enter a new UCAS application cycle holding an offer.
