    Is it true that you have to decline your deferred entry offer if you want to retake A Levels during the year out? Thanks.

    No. However, you can't reapply unless you decline your offer

    Thanks, if I received an unconditional, do I have to tell my University that I'm retaking?

    You should, but they probably wont care.

    But if you don't tell them it will cause problems when you enrol - they'll probably ask to see certificates (even with an unconditional) and will be confused when you have different grades to what you declared on your application

    Okay thanks. When I phone to defer my entry is there a chance they could withdraw my application?

    Not as such, no. But they can refuse to defer it - some unis don't like to give deferred offers for some subjects (especially maths and related). Sometimes they will be planning to increase the typical offer, so you might not meet the new grades. Or they could just be grumpy because you've left it so late to ask them.

    So they won't withdraw the offer, but they're not guaranteed to defer it
