    Hey, so i have finished sixth form and i have passed my subjects, i have also been accepted to my university of choice but deferred it to a 2018 start. My issue is that I dropped a course during sixth form and so i only have 2 A-Level qualifications. I need a third for university. Luckily i am taking a gap year so i have this chance to do another subject. My issue is all sixthforms have closed their applications to start this year, and i don't know if i could fast track a course?? If you guys have any idea as to hoe i could have a 'late' start somewhere, and what colleges/sixthforms i can fast track a course or something, it would really help, thankss x

    Even though your offer is deferred, you need to meet the conditions by August 2017. So if you need 3 A Levels, you need to get those this year or you have missed your offer. You can reapply, but you can't keep your deferred offer and take another A Level in your gap year.

    You might be able to take an A Level through distance learning. This is very expensive, and you'll still need to find a centre to sit the exams. But if all of your local colleges won't accept you it may be a good option.

    Ohh thank you, that helps a lot. At least I won't be stressing about squishing everything in last minute. I guess my option is just to re apply. Thank you!
