With regards to the IELTS requirement, the IELTS result is valid for two years starting from the date you take the test. Therefore, if you took the test earlier on in the year (2020) it should be valid for your admission requirements in 2021. However if you took the test in 2019 the IELTS system will automatically deactivate the result once it reaches the second year, and you will have to take another test. It may be comforting to know I took mine twice because I had to defer my admission also.
Further, if you have any questions about your course, student life at Coventry university, accommodation etc. there are student ambassadors available to answer your questions.
