    What's it like? It's interesting, occasionally stressful (like all degrees), but ultimately worthwhile.
    I'm at Manchester
    I was torn between psychology and politics for ages both of which I loved at A Level. Eventually what swayed me was the relative employment rates, and four years on I don't regret my choice at all.

    Thank you! I agree the employment opportunities are very high for politics :-)

    Haha, me too.

    I was going to apply to Birmingham and LSE! But London'd be too expensive (I'm from up north).

    Good luck with your application! Are you going for Government or International Relations?

    Aww yeah London is expensive so if I did get into LSE highly unlikely as it's my aspirational, id stay at home!

    Good luck with your application, wish you the best!!

    And international relations :P

    Hi lucine :-)
    That's really interesting I studied psychology for AS would have continued it but I needed my other subs for politics
    What's made you consider a gap year? Year 13 is extremely difficult especially with all this Ucas stuff but hopefully manageable! How are you finding it?

    Hey, haha yeah I love Psychology. I see cool, makes sense
    So what do you take then???
    Well firstly I need a break from education lol. I love travelling and doubt that I'll take a gap year after uni. Just want to take a break and enjoy life since I've been schooling for so long...I just really want to travel around and go back to America, stay with family for a little bit. Would like to relax and do what I do best tbh haha.

    Luckily I don't have to go through any of the UCAS stuff. I think its going okay but there is way too much to do in terms fo a lot of work and not much time for revising really but I seem to be coping. Can't wait for it to be all over next year!

    I take government and politics, history and Spanish :-)

    I see your point I have some friends actually nearly all are either re-doing year 12 or taking a gap year! It's good you plan to do something worthwhile in yours that's what is important I wish you the best with your travels!

    Me too I can't wait for all of this to be over and I feel like I'm falling behind on studies with all this Ucas, planning on sending mine off tomorrow and then I'll have some weight of my shoulders!
