Are you male or female, BTW? I would still encourage you to apply in yr2 even if you're male, for the sake of experience. You may be forced to give up the offer, but the entire application process is an experience you'll enjoy.
I would strongly advise you AGAINST this unless you're applying for the PSC/SAFOS/SPFOS scholarships as well. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to get an offer and then be made to drop it altogether. The only exception would be to apply to colleges that allow 2-year deferments (email them in advance to enquire on their policies), but DON'T make an open application if you're applying in Year 2! You can apply again in the 1st and 2nd year of NS again after all.

Uh, why not? Give some reasons. It's better to get an offer (and the experience in the process) and be forced to drop it... than to not go through the entire process or secure any offer at all. It's not like his chances would be hurt when he re-applies.

then, don't apply to oxf lor!
cambridge has a better reputation for holding places for 2 years. selected colleges only, though.

hi!

with NS at its current duration, you might be able to start school only 1 year later than the girls. and you could consider skipping the first few weeks of school if you can't make it to the uk so soon. i know someone who's going to do that.

oh and i'm assuming you're of the male persuasion.
erm...what do you mean "with NS at its current duration"? It is still 2 years long right?

Anyway, I really wish to be able to get into Oxford (for some reason):p:

it's already a little less than 2 years and decreasing further, i think.

oxford is uglier than cambridge imo, and i think stuff costs more there as well. then again, it's got an o'neill's (not sure about cam in this respect)

It's 2 years now (1 year 10 months for those who achieved NAPHA Silver or better in JC2), and there is absolutely NO rumour whatsoever of it being reduced anytime soon (I also highly doubt it considering the manpower crisis we are in now anyway).

I'm sure those on the Oxford forum on TSR can give you similar, if not better recommendations. :yy:

You are just about as pedantic as the people from The Other Place.

Just got back from a friend's farewell dinner... wow, this has been one great weekend! :cool:

And the following week looks all set to be great!

Has anyone seen The Breakup? I caught it earlier today afternoon.... gah, I almost pulled out all my hair! Tensions in the movie predictably escalated and you're forced to spend the rest of the movie pretending like you care if the couple get back together. Do they? You have to watch it to know for yourself...... but suffice to say, I left the movie feeling disheartened, disappointed, and EMPTY! :p:

What?

I haven't seen it myself, but most people I've spoken to haven't come out of a movie feeling as robbed!

only happens if you go in EXPECTING something. I was dragged there against my will, demanding to know how ANY movie about fast cars and girls could be any good.

But ohhh drifting
