    Hi. UCL offered me a defferment. I'm ready to say yes, however I want to be aware of consequences.

    Does accepting this offer mean that I cannot apply next year again in UCAS to other unis?

    Yes, but why would you want to?

    Because my mind may change during incoming year.

    So you're saying that UCL may somehow block my application?

    No, the UCAS rules and system - not UCL - will block any further application while you are holding an offer from any institution. If you change your mind then decline the offer from UCL and re-apply. But don't expect that you can re-apply to UCL and they will necessarily make another offer.

    Think very carefully before giving up the very large, juicy bird you have in your hand in order to seek another in the bush.

    OK, but will it be possible to ask UCL between, say, November and any-other-month-next year to decline my offer to make it possible for me to make another UCAS application?

    I already answered that question. You can always decline the offer and re-apply.

    Yes, you can ask them, but they may reject you if you ask them to release you and then apply there again.

    Think carefully...UCL is a brilliant uni.

    Yes. The offer will lapse if you don't meet the requirement by 2 September.

    You seem a little confused. They impose the requirements, which require no proof. You meet the requirements. The proof you have met (or otherwise) them will go to the university via UCAS from the exam board just before results are published in August. They will then confirm your offer as unconditional, or reject you, according to your results.
