I spent 3 yrs doing Physics and failed my 2nd yr twice. I took a gap year with the intention of going back and doing Biomedical Engineering. I have been offered a permanent sales job and am considering taking it and deferring Uni for another year. My parents feel that if I do this I will never go back to Uni, what are the statistics of people who take gap years after failing and then never return to higher education?

You don't need to finish university. If you think the job is a good one, you want to do it and it's guaranteed to be secure (however that might be proved) then take it. If going to university is to get a job, and you've been given a job opportunity, then why not.
If you really want to complete the degree, you can still take it and decide on your future after another deferral.
Are you enjoying university given you've failed second year twice?
