    After getting my results and, thankfully, getting accepted into Uni, I have decided to take a working Gap Year. My reasoning behind this, like with most others, is to earn money. My main concern is whether to find work that will simply boost my bank balance or that will give me professional experience? The degree I'm studying after my Gap Year is History and International relations, but the issue I have is that I have very little idea what career path I want to go down afterwards other than one that my degree would be relevant to. So, if I am to pick experience over just money alone:
    1) What type of experience should I be looking to gain?
    2) Will a recent A-level graduate be able to get a more professional position?
    3) And, what kinds of jobs would accept A-level graduates?

    I don't want to sound above my means at all by using words like 'professional positions', it was just the only way I could word it! I'd really appreciate any advice and expertise, thanks!
    p.s. Sorry if the question is rather vague, I'm still trying to process the idea of taking a year out as we speak!
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
