    Hey guys.

    Quick question.
    I was on a one year CERTHE history course last year (2014 -15). unfortunately i had to defer the last term for personal reasons. So I'm due to finish my course when I'm back for the summer term this year.

    Now my question is I'm applying to UCAS now do i mention this in the statement? why it took me two years to finish a one year course? or do i not mention anything at all and write it as if I'm currently still on the course?
    Also if i do mention it do i have to explain why and what ive been doing in the meantime?

    Thanks a lot

    Also i should probably mention that my tutor said she would mention my deferral in the reference. is that enough? or do i need to go in detail in my PS?

    Cheers

    If it's relevant to your course you should mention it, and a brief mention of hobbies is OK, but otherwise you don't need to make a big deal out of it
