I applied to UCAS for 2016 entry and have decided to take a gap year so my entry has been deferred. I haven't finished my application however as i need to finish my personal statement so it still hasn't been sent off and I'm pretty sure my deadline is at the end of August. However, I've been told that I need to contact universities directly and am a little confused as to why. Is there a possibility of applying for 2017 entry instead? I don't really understand what I am meant to do and it's starting to worry me.
