FYI - I sent an email about deferring on the Tuesday (20th) and i saw the change on my UCAS on Friday.
Have you heard yet. I’m in the same boat and asked again yesterday and they told me deferrals would be informed by the 31st and I still haven’t heard.
I’ve accepted my offered place for History, although I just missed the grade (AAA instead of A*AA), I was very lucky to still be given a place. However, I would like to now defer the place until next year (entry 2020). I’ve emailed numerous times and rang twice before bank holiday weekend. I’m really anxious to know Durham’s answer. Any idea how long they could take and why it takes so long to say yes or no and what my chances of a yes are?
About my deferral request until the first day of term. Which means I would have to decide on the day whether I’m going this year of next year. I’m really shocked that they would not inform students of their decision like this.
