    Hi there,

    If I dont meet the requirements of my 'firm' university, but DO meet the requirements of my insurance, can I decide to reject my insurance anyway and take a spontaneous gap year, or am I obliged to go....

    What we were told at our school was that technically you'd be legally required to go but that it wasn't really enforced, so basically you'd probably be able to get out of it. Probably check with your school, though.

    You could probably ask them to defer your entry for a year when you receive your results?

    They'll come to your house in the middle of the night and kidnap you :sadnod:

    Alternatively, it's fine. You just need to tell them.

    So why have an insurance? Other people could be missing out because of you.

    And that's why universities advertise vacancies...

    No, you aren't. You can do what you like

    If you meet the terms of your Firm offer - or they accept you anyway - your Insurance offer disappears. You cannot at that stage decide you would rather go to your Insurance. Choose carefully.

    Yes, you can cancel your place (whatever place you have) after Results Day. Just think very carefully before you do it - deferring and doing some careful thinking is often a much better option.

    If the Uni agrees (most will) then you can defer whatever confirmed place you have until 2015 entry.
