even though i accepted my offers and am set to go to uni in Sept i was wondering can i decide to take a gap year after all. someone i spoke to said you can wait till you get your results then still defer your entry? could anyone give me details about this like:
do you have to pay top up fees?
is it at the descresion of the uni?
Ask your uni if they'll let you defer. Explain why and what you're planning to do in your gap year.
In order to avoid top up fees, you need to have a letter conforming your deferred place (for entry 2006) dated before 1st August 2005.
If you want to have a gap year ask your uni as soon as possible. When I asked it took them ages to consider it and then they said no...so then I had to appeal. The whole process took a while. So do it quick as there is a deadline to avoid top up fees
I would suggest you contact the university ASAP (i.e. this week if possible), so they could change their records and stuff like that. Since you are deferring, there is no need to pay the top up fees, you pay the flat rate instead.
aite cool thanks for the help. i betta hurry up and decide i definately want one!
Tell them your family circumstances have changed and you'll now have to get a job and pay your way, otherwise you can't afford it. Then they'll have to let you defer!
