The thing is that I didn't get the grades required and I was thinking about going into clearing. My grades aren't great, but retaking the exams is not an option. The courses I find in Clearing that I am interested about aren't great either, the universities don't seem to be especially good and I am nervous because I don't know what to do.
My question is, if I take a gap year and find a job related to what I want to study at university, or study a language, whenever I apply next year if I have the same grades I will be in the same situation or the gap year + work experience/language learning will make a difference?
I don't know if I should go into clearing or take a gap year and try again next year...
Is this right?
