    Hey all,

    Quick question: If I were to get offers (conditional or unconditional) for UCAS 2011 where I initially put NOT deffered entry (i.e Sep 2011 entry), and I later decided that I wanted to take a gap-year, could I then at any point defer my offer to Sep 2012 entry??

    Cheers.

    You could ask the university to allow deferral, but it isn't bound to do so. I suspect that the earlier you ask the higher the chances of getting a positive response.

    Depends on the uni - if they have spaces in their 'deferred' quota, if they allow it on principle (as in they don't want people getting an offer from their main quota, which is obviously larger than their 'deferred quota' then cheekily getting themselves into the deferred quota).

    If you know you want to have a gap year, just be honest now, it'll save a lot of time and potential heartache!
