    Hey guys,

    i was just wondering if i have been given an offer for this year for a deferred entry to one university, but i decide i want to apply for the course at a different university during my gap year, will i have to give up the place i've been offered before i apply, or only when the new uni has given me an offer?

    Don't quote me on this, but I think you will have to give up your place for this year before you can reapply next year. This is unless, of course, you do not meet the conditions of your firm choice and then decide to reapply next year. However, if you do decide to decline both your firm and insurance universities for September 2007, then you'll need to repply next year I'm afraid, unless you ask your University to accept your deferred entry at this late stage. I'm not sure if they would, but it is certainly worth a try.

    Good luck

    Yes you have to withdraw from this year and hold no offers to reapply.
