Just defer entry to 2009. I'm pretty sure if you ask nicely they'll let you go to you insurance choics.

You would need to ask the uni "would it be possible to defer my place?". They'll possibly say yes, although they will ask for a reason. If they do say you can, then you'll definitely be going there in 2009. You would not be able to apply anywhere else through UCAS in your gap year

You would get another chance, but I think you would have to re-apply, or phone up the uni first and ask them.

You would need to tell the uni that you no longer wish to go there, and ask them to release you from your offer. Then it would probably be a good idea to notify UCAS, too.

You must not just complete a new UCAS application without doing the above.

Also if i was to do this... how easy is it to apply on your own? no help from a personal tutor or anything.. i would still have to get a reference? or could they use that from my other application?

Im applying on my own and you can ask UCAS any time.

And I do think that you'll need a new reference.
