I am a student due to start this year. With the possibility of a major second wave of COVID-19 getting more and more plausible every day, in the last week I have found myself seriously considering a gap year so that I can start university when life is (hopefully) back to normal.
Now usually, there would be no chance of deferring at this time of year. However, I understand that the situation this year may be a little different due to the enlarged intake that most colleges are experiencing and that, in some cases, volunteers for deferral are being actively thought.
Has anyone had any experience with dealing with deferral requests in the last few days? Is it worth even calling my college to ask them if it's possible?
