Say I did not get any offers from any of the 5 universities I apply to, and reapply to the same ones next year. Does this count as deferred entry?

No, not unless you are taking a year out before starting - see here.

Why do you expect a different result this time?

Oh, so deferred entry only applies to applicants who have received an offer but have opted to delay entry? I am a soon to be Y13 applying on UCAS for medicine but its getting increasingly competitive so I am considering my options

You apply for deferred entry, rather than deferring it after an offer (which may, or may not, be possible).

Medicine is tough, and explains why you're reapplying. Good luck.

Sorry if I didn't clarify I meant this is the first time ever that I'm applying.

So in October this year you can either apply for entry in September 2022, or deferred entry in September 2023.

If you then reapplied in October 2022, you'd apply for either entry in September 2023, or deferred entry in September 2024. If you applied in October 2022 for September 2023 entry, you'd be a standard applicant (I guess technically a reapplicant, although unis won't necessarily remember you) rather than a deferred entry applicant.

You'd want to think carefully about reapplying to the exact same 4 universities though - be sure to apply strategically based on your GCSEs, A level predictions/achieved grades and UCAT/BMAT scores to give yourself the best chance, and (in the case that you need to reapply next year) use any feedback you're given to be sure your application is improved.

no deferred entry is when you get an offer and decide to take it up in a year either apply via UCAS for deferred entry or contact the university admissions team after yogurt your offers.
