I'm sorry to say that only you can make that decision. You have to decide what's best for you...

I'll try and give some pros and cons though:

Pros: Take a gap year...gain experience etc...get your grades and return next year a better candidate.
You could get into a better uni than Lancaster (not taking anything away from this uni)
Have a great gap year and travel etc....do things you've always wanted to do

Cons: No guaranteeing on a place next year
Delay going to uni for a whole year

Also remember though...if you do decide to go to lancaster this year...you'll probably have the time of your life...and you won't be able to imagine not going to uni there...and meeting the people you met and having the experiences.

Hope it helps....

Good Luck

Competition for places next year will be just as tough, if not worse due to tuition fees. I faced the same dilemma as i have been rejected from my top 3 choices but after careful consideration the risks of taking a gap year with the hope of more success next year are huge. Lancaster is a good uni. Things could be worse.

Lancaster is a very good univesrsity, a degree from there is highly respected. That little fact coupled with the fact that there may be increased competition next year due to the rush to aviod tuition fees means that in your position I would go to Lancaster (also helps that I actually like the place, so I would make sure you have visited a few times before making any decision)!!!
