What should i do with uni?

    • Thread Starter

    Due to health problems i've been having lately i may have to put off uni for a year.
    I am currently waiting on a hospital appointment, hopefully after which i will know whether i am going to be going this year or not.
    However, this appointment may not be untill late August, so it's leaving it very last minute.

    Any advice? Should i defer my uni place now if possible? how late can u leave it to defer entry? Or should i decline my place and then reapply next year?

    Contact your university and explain your situation, they should be understanding in your situation

    Is it best to do it now, or wait till my appointment?

    If you do it now then it makes them aware of the potential situation that could arrise
    Make it clear though, that you aren't wanting to defer just yet and you're just calling to ask for advice.
