I applied in 2003 and deferred, then changed my mind, then deferred again...So I'm starting this year

I wouldn't recommend it if you're sure you want to defer now - wait until next year to apply. A year is a lot of time to change your mind on what subject you want to do or even what university you want to be at, let alone two years. Leave it until you've got your grades and you know what universities you're definitely capable of getting into if you're absolutely sure that you don't want to go next year.

It's not a different proceedure in terms of application, you just tick the box that says you'd like to defer

I met a cool guy on my open day visit, he got in but it turns out he's deferred
and is taking a gap year. So I guess I'll see him at the start of my second year! :p:


I forget how common this whole thing is - I chose to just "get on with it" and
go straight after 6th-form, but if you look at the "Need more posts" topic,
there're people with birthdays in 86, 85, even 84?

I suppose when we're there no-one can tell much.

Yeah, I was born in 84...I've been to uni already and I dropped out. When you are at university, it really doesn't matter how old you are. I started university last year expecting to be one of the oldest as I had already taken a gap year - it turned out I was the youngest in my student house!

yeah am another 84 one lol. Went to college for 2 years doing tourism and film AS, applied to uni at Brighton to do Tourism then decided didn't want to do that and would have stayed in Eastbourne where i live.

so went back to college for another 2 years for a levels. then applied and deferred entry for Surrey to do Business Management and at the end of last year decided i didn't want to do that so withdrew and reapplied to Sussex and few other places for Geography/Environmental Hazards degrees got in all but chose Sussex as I love Brighton.

Not done much except work full time this year temping for Social Services, Sensory Impairment Team and worked part-time helping out my old job occasionally for a newsagents. Although have had two holidays, two weeks in Sitges (with mates) last year and two weeks in florida this year with my then GF (now ex).

So not saved as much as would have like lol. Oh well

That's basically what i did, i enjoyed the long break from schoolwork, and saved up a bit of money to help out at uni. I'd certainly recommend it, as more money in your pocket is always good, and the extra work experience might help you figure out what sort of job best suits you, for after uni etc... Just don't spend the whole year sat around the house doing nothing like some of my friends!

I had a year out to have a break from exams and get some work experience and earn some money! I applied normally and deferred once i got a job and it was confirmed. My friend deferred last september a week before moving in! So we're both starting in two weeks

I imagine there'll be loads of people who've deferred, i really doubt the majority of people will have gone straight from school.
