I want to apply to: Cambridge, Exeter, Durham, Kent, and Lancaster for English Lit.

I’ve come to the decision that I want to take a gap year. The reason for this is due to mental health issues, as well as being overworked (having to work full time hours during college to support myself), needing to earn money etc.

Will I be disadvantaged by applying deferred? Is it better to just apply next year?

In general, you aren't at a disadvantage for applying for deferred entry. There are some courses where it's not seen as a good option, but English Lit isn't one of them.

If you apply this year, and don't get the offers you want, you can do another application next year- but if you only apply next year you've only got that one chance to get places. So I'd apply this year!
