    Are you planning on completing a degree in that 3 years? If so, you'll probably lose out on that deferred offer anyway and it will have funding implications.

    I have enrolled to biomedical science which will be finishing in 3 years, plus I was thinking if I can get into better university from graduate entry than the offer from deffered entry I can ditch that, if that's possible, (I will applying to deffered entry medicine in 2017 sep)

    You do realise that you don't get funded for tuition fees for a 5 year course if you have a degree. So, as it stands now, you need to pay £36k over the first four years.

    You won't get any offers to defer because you're currently doing a degree. If you start that degree then you will finish it and apply for GEM at the end. Deferring is only for people who want a year out before starting for medical reasons/gap year etc, its not so you can go off and complete another degree in between
