One of my friends is an au pair out in Italy for the year and is loving it!(Original post by LamantChenille)
I'm currently on my gap year-spending a year in Paris living with a French family and working as an au pair! So far it's pretty good. Though it is quite strange to see so many people from school starting university, and knowing that when I start next year I'll be a year behind them!
Loads of people take gap years and so it will not be uncommon to be starting a year behind. I wouldn't even think of it as being a year behind providing you do something productive with your year!
That must have been incredibly annoying, did they not offer you a place for 2017? Show that you are doing something with your year out rather than just sitting at home doing nothing!(Original post by Jedwards)
I'm (unfortunately) on a forced gap year due to missing my results on results day, and then meeting them through a remark when it was too late to still be accepted, so have to take a year off to reapply.
I'm living in London and am planning on studying Law
I've applied for volunteering with the citizen's advice bureau and am looking for work experience with Law firms. Does anyone have any ideas/tips/suggestions for how else I can fill up my year given that this is very last minute?
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
