Hi. Just wanted to know how it works i.e. is there an option on UCAS to defer entry? I'm planning on taking a gap-year (highly dependent on the grades I get) and re-apply to supposedly better universities. Only thing is, I'm worried about whether the university I firm won't allow me to do so - are applicants under some contract or something?

Any advice/help is appreciated!

If you were wanting to defer entry, there should have been an option when you were making your five university choices. As you have now sent it off and received offers, you would now need to speak to the Admissions department at the University/Universities you are considering and talk to them about deferring entry. They will be able to give you advice on what best to do.

By the way, you can't apply to universities if you hold a deferred offer. You have to withdraw from the offer - you can do this after results day if you wish.
