    Hi guys,

    I'm currently in Year 13 and slowly heading towards the train wreak of exam season. My sixth form and parents are wanting me to go to Uni next September. I am looking at studying Early Childhood Studies or a joint psychology honours. I don't really want to go to Uni next year or ever really but I know that if I want to become a play therapist then Uni is the way to go. I'm planning on doing a gap year once my last exam next July has finished, and in a dream world I would prefer to travel for a living, but I know I need to get a job and earn a wage.

    So what I'm trying to ask is that should I apply for 2018 entry and then defer for a year, or should I wait till I'm on my gap year to apply when I may have a better idea if Uni is really the place for me?

    Thanks guys, any help/ ideas is really appreciated!

    From what I've heard it's a lot easier to go through UCAS while still at school with teachers help etc. Even if you apply for deferred entry you don't have to go if you don't feel like it at the end of the gap year but at least you'll have a place if you do decide to go.

    Thank you. I know that is an option but I'm not sure if uni's like students doing a deferred entry.

    As long as you don't waste your year most unis don't really care, it is usually expected to add a line or two about your plans in your personal statement though.
