Personal Statement AdviceWatch
Long story short, I went through some personal issues throughout my a-levels which the college I attended was well aware of, and which was one of the main factors for my poor results. The planned gap year was merely so I could have some time and space needed to 'sort myself out'. I did work for some time during my gap year but not much else, I'm only now finishing off my personal statement for 2015 entry but i'm drawing a blank on what to say was the reason for my gap year. Taking a year out has helped me develop as a person and made me able to cope a lot better, but I don't know if that would be an appropriate thing to add into my personal statement.
