    My friend (really is a friend, not me, she's just a little scared of this website) is a fourth year @ college and got an unconditional offer for 2019 entry at her top uni because at the time of applying she thought she'd take a year off between college and uni while she got a job, raised some money and decided what she wanted to do in the long run. She's since figured out what she wants to do after uni, and now wants to go this year instead. She's already accepted the offer for a 2019 start and now she's wondering if it's too late to change it to 2018.

    She asked me what to do and I've suggested ring the uni and ask but it's been three weeks, she has serious anxiety about phone calls and she's not told me if anything came of that and I was wondering is there anything else I could be advising her to try? She's a really good friend, I want to help her out and she's so clearly stressing about this!

    She could email the uni. No nasty phone call that way.
    She needs to ask the uni themselves in some way or another cos they are the only ones who can give her an answer and arrange it if it would be possible.

    You could always offer to ring for her - if she's able to give permission on the phone for the university to speak to you and you put them on speakerphone so that she can hear what's said it should be fairly simple to sort out
