    I do have a place for uni (I got into my firm choice) but I not sure about the course I am doing. I am thinking about taking a gap year or apply for another course.
    How many days do I have before I can change my mind about going to my firm choice? Like is there a deadline for when you have to tell your uni that you want to reject their offer/take a gap/do something else?
    Also if you defer your offer can you still apply for another course? And if you do defer your offer but then you happen to change your mind and want to apply for another course do you lose your offer?

    You have to get them to release you into clearing, which they don't have to.

    On deferring, that could vary from uni to uni snoring them and ask. They'll knew where you stand on all questions better than anyone on here.

    And if I want to defer it and take a gap? Would I still have the place even if their entry requirements will be different for next year??

    Is there a deadline of some sort before you can decline your confirmed offer if you don't want to go uni??

    I'm not sure if you can decline it. You have to let them release you. As I've said, call the unjversity in question and they'll able to tell you straight away.
