    If you want a gap year, just do it.

    Why bother with the extra a levels?

    I would like to not waste a year :o: and the year isn't intended for just learning to drive(although that's one of them) but I want to boraden my knowledge and qualifications.

    I picked English,law,environmental studies but I think if I dedicate myself in that one year I can do something like chemistry/sociology??

    Also I'm not entirely sure on what I wish to do at uni.

    Sorry, I meant a year to do extra things like widening my knowledge in other AS-levels and making my CV stronger (driving was one of the things) :rolleyes:

    It wouldn't be lazy. I would advise picking a subject relevant to what you want to study at university, so at least it looks as if you are taking the extra year to get into uni and not for other reasons.

    Like if you wanted to do Law or Business Management you could do Economics and History, and say you wanted to do some extra subjects to broaden your range of skills and prepare for your university course. Also, doing an extra year would give you extra chances for retakes!
