Was talking to my nan today, and she raised the opinion that it may be best that I don't take a gap year but instead go to university next September. If I take a gap year, I would have already applied/got a place/know my results, but apparently, it's best I went and didn't faff about with a gap year.
Having talked myself into having a gap year and slightly preparing myself for going to university in September 2007, I feel next year would be a bit *too* soon. I know it's the norm - after A Levels, you go to university, but I feel it would be too early for me to go. I've always been a "young one" - if I was born on my due date (give or take a few days) I would have been in year 11 by now, doing my GCSEs. Not in college. Not doing AS Levels.
And certainly not thinking so hard about university.
Does anyone know of any pros and cons in regards to taking a gap year/going to university straight away? I'm not bothered about the distance (except for a few practicality reasons, as in getting all my junk to here or there) or missing family/whatever, and I could get a NHS bursary with my course, so money *may* not be a problem.
However, I still need to earn, and a gap year may help that.
If anyone can help, then thanks! I'm sure I'm not the only one concerned by any of this, so it helps others too
(No idea if this should go in Gap Years or University Discussion).
