    Basically I have received offers for deferred entry to both Exeter and Sussex and I have been advised to put the former as my firm and the latter as my insurance. If for whatever reason I miss my grades for Exeter and realise I hate Sussex (I still haven't visited it yet), is it then possible to then reject Sussex and apply again in the next cycle. What is the deadline for this? Is it latter for a deferred offer than an offer for immediate entry?

    If you firm Exeter and miss your offer, you go to Sussex. If you realise you don't want to go to Sussex, you can withdraw your application. You can then re-apply under the next cycle, which opens in Sept 2013, and closes in Jan 2014.

    Thanks for that. Do you know when that application has to be withdrawn by or is it just a case of not being able to re-apply until you have rejected your last application?

    I am not 100% sure. It makes sense that you should have to withdraw before the next cycle opens.

    I would advise to check out Sussex before results day, just incase. Results day is I *think* 15th August so, if you were to not meet your offer for Exeter, I doubt they'd have an open day to go to before the start of the new cycle. I know that Sussex has two open days on June 28th and 29th. Just incase.

    You can hold you offer for 2013 entry, and even go to your insurance while applying for 2014 entry. UCAS rules just don't allow you to reapply while holding an offer for deferred entry.

    To withdraw from your insurance you can wait until the day you're due to arrive with no penalties (either from the uni, UCAS or student finance) - but if you pay a deposit for accommodation or sign up to a contract for accomm then you will lose your deposit and/or might be liable to pay the rent depending on the contract.

    Regardless of that though - don't forget to apply for accommodation at your insurance choice. Applying doesn't commit you to taking up the place but not applying could mean you've not only missed your firm offer but you've got nowhere to live at your insurance!

    Both my offers were for deferred entry, so I don't need to apply for accommodation yet, do I ?
