    Looking at the spreadsheet, St John's is one of slower colleges so you might get your reply any point this week or even the beginning of the next! I totally understand the stress but try to keep reading and drawing in the mean time of waiting bc that's what I'm doing 😂😭

    A couple of stats based on that sheet from the Cambridge forum:

    10 Architecture entries represent 3.9% of all 375(ish) applications
    compare to
    116 of 3000 applications (2.7%) for Natural Sciences
    or
    581/16500 applications (3.5%) for the university as a whole

    These figures are probably not statistically significant, but I'm wondering if TSR is disproportionately international and that architecture is quite an international course?

    I desperately want to defer to 2018, I didn't apply for deferred entry as it is so much harder to get in and I applied this year as I wanted it out the way.

    I have saved up money to travel and the architectural practice I did work experience at has offered me a job for next summer. I would also try and get more work experience at different practices.

    However, I am terrified of emailing Bath, who I have got an offer from and will be my first choice, to request a deferred entry. With them being on of the top and most competitive architectural unis in the country and with no strong valid reason such as a death in the family ect. for me to defer I think I will just irritate them by requesting a deferral.

    Someone has told me that if I request a deferral and they decline it they will retract my offer altogether! I would rather go to Bath next year with no gap year rather than not go at all!

    Is anyone else going to request a deferral?

    And are they able to/would they retract my offer for 2017 if they said no to a deferral?

    How likely are they to say no?
