I'm just about to finish my first year of university after I sit my exams, but I haven't really enjoyed my time here and was wanting to look into the possibility of taking a gap year. So I have some questions: 1. can anyone take a gap year or are there requirements that have to be met? 2. do your exam results affect your chances of being granted a gap year? 3. does it look bad to future employers if I just worked hard and earned money during my gap year instead of going travelling? Thank you to anyone who answers, it'll be much appreciated!
...or just paranoid?
