    I'm predicted A*A*AA this year and achieved AAAAA in AS. I've got 4/5 offers and 1 rejection from LSE(the one i really want), whilst i actually plan to just enter CASS if they've given me 2016 offer instead of my current deferred 2017 offer due to my age, as I'll be only 18 til late april next year. My question is, will reapplying be a better option for me as somehow I will start my uni next 2017, also keep in mind that I won't resit any of my A levels, or will it adversely disadvantage my application? I do think If i reapply next year there's more chance of me getting in to LSE bc i can somehow make a better P.S, and with my achieved grades I can actually apply to all good uni's. However I also do not want to lose my CASS option as it's indeed a quite reputable uni, and their offer is AAA anyways. So what will be the better option? Thanks so much.

    You can accept your offer from CASS and then decide when you get your results in August whether you want to go there in 2016 or take the gap year you had planned and reapply. Read the small print for any accommodation applications you might submit to make sure you aren't committing to anything. You can withdraw to take a gap year at any point (and given your age no university will hold that against you).

    If you reapply next year with your grades in hand then CASS wont hold it against you - LSE wont either (they just don't like resitting applicants: https://lfylive.lse.ac.uk/lfy/tc/enq...&searchString= and aren't interested in applications for transfers/into year 1 from another university https://lfylive.lse.ac.uk/lfy/tc/enq...&searchString=)
