    I have been thinking about deferring my medicine application and going on a gap year. This is in order to increase my experience for application. Are universities less lenient on deferred entries?

    I think you may mean taking a gap year instead of deferred entry.. deferring means you would apply this year to start in 2020, so you would only have the experience you can get up until this October. A gap year would mean you would apply next year for 2020 entry

    I thought about deferring entry but I thought I would be a bit jealous if any of my friends got in and went away next year. I would feel like they were always a step ahead of me.
    As far as I know, deferred entry applicants are treated the same as those who are applying to enter the next year.
