    I have sent out my application, got 5 conditional offers all for German even though I had bad As levels (DDD). I always had the thought in the back of my mind of whether or not this is what I want to do because I'm naturally not good at studying at haven't studied very much in the 7 years I've been at school. I am way behind already in my last year of school and don't think I will have good A2's anyway. I get the feeling I won't enjoy my university career at all and I won't do any of the work like I haven't in school.

    Now I'm not so sure I want to go. I have no idea what I want to do with my degree - I don't want to be a teacher, translator or any other stereo typical job Language graduates do.

    At the moment I work part-time in a shop and I really enjoy my job and have lots of friends in it and it seems a better option at the minute to take a year out and really decide what I went to do instead of going to university and not enjoying it at all and dropping out.

    I don't know what to do. I kind of want to wait and hold on until results day before I make a brash decision. Maybe I just need a year out, I just feel done with education. If I did hold on, got the grades to get in etc, am I likely to get a deferred place if I asked?

    Any advice on what I should do would be appreciated

    The reason why nobody has replied to your post is because the answer is obvious.

    "I don't want to go to university."
    "Okay, then don't."

    ... really?

    Take a gap year. You'll get some valuable life experience, provided you work hard at your part time job.

    If you don't want to go, then don't, but the answer to the following question....
