I've listed The University of Birmingham as my firm choice. I am now having serious doubts about whether I am ready to go to uni and a friend suggested perhaps deferring my place to next year. I was wondering a) if this would be possible (providing I get the grades) at this stage in my application and b) what I would need to do/who to phone up. I'm the first person in my family to go to university so I really don't know much about this and I am so stressed!
Or does it play no part?
