so at the moment I'm at the point in my life where I believe I know what I want to do but it isn't of the traditional route. I'd like to take a gap year then possibly begin an apprenticeship towards Music business and performance since it has always been a passion of mine to perform and understand the industry. After being advised by some in the industry, they explained experience is considered not qualifications in the performing industry.
So I've decided to take a gap year for this after A levels but if the apprenticeship is a year or two years long, I'd be 21 years.
I looked at King's college's (my dream uni) entry requirements for the course I'd like to take which is international relations and out of curiosity even Cambridge though I am not keen on going and for mature students, these unis require for you to do at least A levels or access courses within two years of you applying. In this case, I'm thinking of taking an extra A level while on my gap year and doing the music business apprenticeship.
So yesterday, I was told by friends unis don't like it when you've done A levels in more than two years but does this apply for mature students? I'm sure it does not since to keep to the two year policy, they'd have to take on recent qualifications.
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
