    I didn't get the required grades to get into my course, ABB vs A*AB/AAA, and am therefore taking a year out with a view to re-applying next year. I plan on volunteering helping children/community development in South America, and can't come up with a relevant way of linking it back to Computer Science which is the course I plan on taking provided that I get the grades next year. I've already mentioned communication skills and am trying not to mention it again. Any ideas?
