    Hey!

    i need something clarifying... say, i was able to defer my entries to uni until 2005 Sept(i'd have to do that for both firm and insurance i presume)... okay... so... does that mean thorughout 2004-5, I can't apply using ucas for another course just to see how that turns out? :confused: (if that makes sense)

    It certainly does. (how many of us now have entertained genius plots of securing our current places whilst simultaneously taking a shot at our dream course? )

    you would only be able to defer entry after your results- eg. you would be accepted by the uni and then you would tell them you wanted to defer entry until next year, but you would be guaranteed a place. It does mean that you can't apply for anything else. if you want to apply for another course, then you must decline your place at the university this year and reapply- new personal statement etc..... or, if you deferred your place you could attempt to change your course at the same uni for 2005, but you would need a very good reason to do this.

    Hope this helps

    no, there is nothing to stop you reapplying to the same university for the same course- but of course there is no guarantee that they will accept you the second time- you may have to give them a good reason why you turned them down before....

    Sorry, just another question....

    I can't decide whether to defer my entry and take a gap year or not, but for some reason I think I will be able to tell by the time I receive my results! If on August the 19th when I get my results, I then decide I want to take a gap year, am I allowed to defer for a year even if I've already been accepted?

    yes, you just need to phone your university department and speak to the admissions tutor- explain you want to defer your place.....
    it shouldn't be a problem but you need to speak to them on results day...
    i deferred my place after results- they just told me to write them a letter, which i did....or you could contact them now and explain you are considering it and what do you have to do if you decide you want to defer??

    Does anyone know what view Cambridge would take if I asked to defer my entry after receiving an offer for this coming year?
