So I'm almost finished my final VCE exams and I'm not sure what I'm going to do next year.

All going well I should get into a Bachelor of IT & Systems course majoring in multimedia. However, I don't get my license until the start or April but the first semester starts mid February which means whoring rides from parents and friends.

I think I should be able to defer for a semester and start the course mid year. This means hopefully working full time in a lousy job plus a bit of freelance media work to build my portfolio and to save up for a nicer car. The only thing I'm worried about is that if I defer I won't want to go back, especially if I can't defer for a semester and have to defer for a whole year.

So my options:
1. Defer for a semester, save money
2. Get straight into, don't allow time to get lazy.

What would YOU do?

Also, anyone familiar with the Australian uni system or whatever. If the course says first semester and second semester intakes does this mean I WILL be able to defer for the first semester? I assume it does.

EDIT: How do I make a poll?
EDIT 2: Nevermind, figured it.

Oh no, I wouldn't be too lazy to work, I would be too lazy to get back into the school spirit type of thing. Like, I wouldn't want to return to the uni course. And given the option, it'll be half a year off. I don't think I could handle a whole year at the moment.

Public transport is more hassle than it's worth.
