    Earlier this year, I applied to University of Plymouth through UCAS Clearing and got my place confirmed for 2005 entry. Later on, due to some unavoidable circumstances, my entry was deferred to September' 2006.

    After getting the Final Letter (containing the Acceptance of the place in Plymouth) from UCAS, I also received the confirmation of deferred entry from the uni, but not from UCAS.

    Isn't UCAS supposed to send me a letter of confirmation, containing the uni's altered decision? :confused:

    I wouldn't really be concerned. You already have a university in mind, and the university knows that you will be enrolling next year. Forget about UCAS.

    Well... I originally applied to UCAS in the 1st place and they forwarded my application to the universities. All the decisions of the unis were confirmed by UCAS throughout the application cycle, so why not the last one?

    Yeah, I know that it probably won't be a problem in getting in to the uni if the confirmation is not received from UCAS, but I'd need to provide all the relevant documents to the British High Commission to apply for a Student Visa.

    Just a quick question about deferring.

    On UCAS I think you had to state for each course whether you want to defer entry to 2007 (please correct me if wrong). Is this choice now firm or can you change your mind (or does it depend on the university/course whether they'll let you change)?

    Yes, you can change your mind at anytime and the uni is able to defer your place at anytime before the start of the course, though it's sometimes mentioned in UCAS booklet that you can defer until 1st August of the year of entry. Just take my case as an example. My place was deferred on 20th September' 2005.

    Hope that helps.
