    Hi! I received a conditional offer to study history at Cambridge but am currently finding A2 difficult with the increased workload and pressure, and so was wondering if it would be possible for me to take a gap year? I didn't apply for deferred entry with my original application, is it too late? Has anyone else had the same problem? Thank you in advance!!

    No it's not necessarily too late. Contact your college and ask them. It's much better to do it now rather than on Results Day.

    BUT deferring won't allow you to extend the time to complete your A-levels. They will still expect that to be done in the normal 2 year period. Also it's worth noting that the workload at Cambridge is likely to be greater than your A2 workload...
