    I would't necessarily say I'm bored but I can't wait to be at university; I think it's the social aspect of school that I'm missing. Anyone else feeling the same?

    Yep. I got no offers last year so I was forced to take a gap year, and all my friends are at uni. Sad sad times

    What are you up to in your year out? I took an unofficial year out to work and I enjoy it. I am not sure I miss uni though

    Yep, missing the social aspect too, especially after visiting friends at their uni's.

    Similar to me but I missed the grade requirements for my offers and didn't want to take anything in clearing. I have a good time visiting some of my friends at uni though but actually being there sounds like good fun.

    I'm working as a lifeguard. I have a good laugh at work and make money as well, which is a bonus! What do you mean by 'unofficial year out'?

    Yeah, being flexible enough to visit friends is a big bonus. What are you up to?

    When you're at uni you will want to be back on your gap year. Trust me.

    This! My gap year is quite boring but it's gone really fast so far. It's almost been 5 months dice results day and since I was in Spain and 5 more months it will be exam time! I guess we've just got to soldier on

    Yeah I can't wait to go back. I was at a uni for about a month but I wasn't enjoying my course at all and decided to just go and reapply for Sept 2015. Now I got a job at a makeup and fragrance counter but I still can't wait to go back to uni and study a course that I really like!

    Oh really? A majority of my friends can't even wait for the Christmas holidays to be over. Is it you had a really great gap year or a not so good uni experience so far?

    To be honest, I've started to enjoy my gap year more and more after getting a job and finding other things to fill the time. So hopefully the next 5 months will be easier!

    Nothing wrong with starting university with a healthy bank balance

    When you go travelling- it's just like uni but with no work.

    I opted for my gap year - really need to earn the money tbh - but mainly I just wish I was at uni so I could make new friends. I have a job and all and everyone there's great but nobody hangs out outside of work and also it's just really hard to meet new people on your own when everyone where you live isn't just there in purgatory for the next nine months like you are.
