So I am a couple of months into A2 and we are currently filling in our UCAS forms and doing our personal statements etc. I'm most likely choosing to study sports journalism or english and history. Sports journalism would require me to go away however english and history is available at home. If I'm honest I don't particularly want to go away however I would if I had to.
Recently one of my friends has decided he is taking a gap year and it got me thinking that maybe I should consider taking a gap year in order to earn some money by working in case I do end up going away to uni. If I was taking a gap year I would apply with deferred entry. If I'm honest I feel like I do want to go to university without taking a gap year as the more I think about taking a gap year to earn some money the more it appeals to me.
What do you guys think I should do?
PS. Not sure if this is the right place for this post as it is my first! Thanks guys!
