    Hey,I recently firmed my offer to study at Bristol but i'm now really regretting not having applied for deferred entry to take a gap year - would they consider deferring my offer/place to 2017 entry? also would i need to explain why i want to do this and tell them what i would be doing in my gap year?

    thx

    Most universities are very happy for applicants to defer offers. Ring them up to ask if that's an option and what they need from you to make it happen.

    Ideally it's best to tell them before A level results day (so they can give your place to someone else this year) but bear in mind that once you defer un-deferring is a lot more difficult.
