    Hi everyone, I've applied for the second time to go to university. I've kind of had a gap year as I finished my alevels last summer. This time its to study Sports Science, travelling from home. I've always felt like I've been pushed to do it and that me not going wouldn't please my parents, even though they didn't go and neither did anyone else in my family. Now, more than ever I feel like I don't want to go. My parents have recently split up and the thought of going to uni doesn't excite me at all. I'm ready to just get on with my life and thinking that this whole time when I've been doubting it is because it isn't for me at all. But, I don't want to tell my parents for the second time until I'm certain. I would like to go in to something like Administration? I know it's nothing exciting to a lot of people wanting to go to uni but I feel like it's what i want to do. I have 10 GCSE's A-C and 4 Alevels: B,C,D,E. Am I likely to find something? I've found a couple in my area on jobsites, but how much of an appealing candidate would I be? My brain is like mosh from all the thinking!! :confused:

    sorry for the loooong post
