    It looks very likely I am taking a gap year as i did not get into college for taking a music course. What I can do instead is work on my guitar skills and get actual grades so in effect i don't lose a year since I can go for course next year that I would of applied for anyway.

    Therefore i am taking a gap year only problem is I don't know what to do. Obviously I will work on my guitar skills to get them up to a good grade I will also take a full time job but my Mum is saying i need to do more with my time and I genuinely don't know what to do. Any ideas?

    A gap year is the ideal time to take up a full time job or part time and study your music. Do what makes you happy but also can be talked about on your personal statement for university such as experiences at work, volunteering and your courses.
