    Hi all,

    I'm currently unsure what I'm going to do, but I'm wondering how late can you pull out of a firm offer from a university if you're taking a gap year? So, if I get an offer from Durham this year, deferred, how late can I leave it to pull out? Can I still pull out after results?

    Secondly, do you have to pull out before starting again next year? So can I have a deferred offer from a uni but still apply for a place at another uni during my gap year?

    Hope that makes sense!

    Thank you for any help!

    I'm not sure about the first question but with regards to the second one, no you can't hold an offer for a deferred place and re-apply next year. You'd have to decline the offer and then re-apply.

    You can withdraw as late as you like - even the day before you're sposda be going. But if you want to reapply to the same uni it's best to do it earlier
