    Thanks a ton! This was very helpful.

    I'm entering Year 13 and I don't feel ready to apply to university this year. Do/can I take a gap year after completing my A-levels? I've completed my AS levels and now have A2 levels to contend with. Additionally, I'm considering resitting an AS module or two alongside my A2 exams. I couldn't decide on a degree or even think about university while I was in the middle of AS levels, so I doubt I'd be able to in the middle of A2 levels.
    Yes. If you're not sure what you want to study or where I'd encourage it. I know people who were in their 30s and married when they started their degrees. So many people take time out. There's no rush.

    I'm pretty sure that after you graduate from high school, you can take a gap year regardless of what curriculum you completed. What AS module were you planning on resitting and why? Also, you never know; maybe by the time you complete your A-levels, you'll already know what your plan is. Regardless of what happens, just remember you have many options available.

    I'm getting two of my AS exams (1 AS English Literature exam and 1 AS History exam) remarked. My UMS mark for the English Literature exam was unexpectedly low - I didn't feel it reflected how I felt I did in the exam. It pulled my overall grade down. My UMS mark for the History exam was frustratingly close to the next highest grade. If the remarks yield no significant improvement in marks, I'll be resitting these two exams or at least one of them to improve my overall grade.

    That's true. Thank you!

    Make the most of life and appreciate what you have at that age.

    Young love can be cool, so if there's anyone you're interested in at your 6th form try to woo them.

    It's always good to strive for the best, so I commend you for that. I don't see why you shouldn't resit your exams, if you feel you can do better then go for it. Keep us posted on your progress!

    Thanks in advance.
    In your case, you would need to repent and develop a strong relationship with God.

    Not too keen with satanic worshipers.

    Well, I'm not one. My username is taken after the band of the same name. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided on that username. I would change it if I could, but unfortunately, this site generally doesn't allow you to change your username. :unimpressed:

    I think very few, if any, people in this world actually monotheistically worship Satan, anyway. LaVeyan Satanists certainly don't. They are basically Ayn Rand-esque libertarians who like Satanic imagery.
