    I'm a bit confused about what to put for my Occupational background.

    On the ucas form it says

    If you are in full-time education, please state the occupation of the highest-earning family member of the household in which you live. If he or she is retired or unemployed, give their most recent occupation. If you are not in full-time education, please state just your own occupation.
    Now i'm on a gap year so i'm not in full time education but i am doing my ucas form through my sixth form still. Should i put my occupation or the highest earning member of my family.

    Thanks

    Doesn't really make much difference. They just use it to compile some oh so useful statistics at the end of this application cycle!
