    Deferring entry until 2012??

    Seriously, I really don't know anyone else who is doing it.

    Oh, by the way, my name is Steph and I'm 17. I go to Sir John Deane's College and study English Language, Human Biology and Psychology.. And, yes, I'm in my second year haha (:

    So, really, anyone?
    I know the fees are going up, but it's always been what I've wanted to do (and I have to, for career reasons).

    Pleeease get back to me xxx

    Very few people are compared to last year, the fees have scared people.

    As well as this I know someone very high up in Leeds university who's basically told me that they're not accepting a single person taking a gap year due to competition.

    Hopefully this isn't the case with all unis, good look.

    I was planning to whole heartily, until I realised the weight of the fees I would have to contend with as a result.

    I know one person who's deferring, for medicine!! I can't imagine the debt he'll come out with.. by that I mean the raw figure, not its impact.

    Ahh gutted haha, I've already had my replies so it's ok.
    The place I really want to go to have offered me a conditional, which I'm pretty sure I can get.
    Gutted for those applying for Leeds though :/ Manchester have rejected me for the same reason (it's alright though cause I didn't actually want to go there (: )
