    Hey guys, I'm looking to go to university and so is my girlfriend. The problem is, she is academically 1 year behind me. What options do I have to make sure we can go together? Should I take a gap year to wait for her?

    Unless you specifically have things you want to do in your gap year, e.g. traveling, getting work experience, etc. I'd say no, do not wait.
    Because if you break up in September and your only reason for waiting is for her, you're basically wasting a year of your life.

    If that's what you want then you should, I think it'd be a really nice thing to do really! Hoping my boyfriend does this for me next year if I'm honest

    No never put someone before anything academic
