I'm currently at the stage where I need to decide whether to take a gap year or not. Before summer I was adamant that I would not take a year out but now I'm thinking it would be so worthwhile. I have citizenship to both New Zealand and Australia which makes it easy to travel/live/work over there, and I'd love to do some traveling around India afterwards.
By the way I am hoping to study medicine (just thought I would let you know incase it has any influence over your advice).
Does anyone have any advice on taking a gap year? Let me know what you did, and if you wish you had done something different or regretted taking one altogether?

A gap year is a great opportunity and if you get the chance to take some time out you could travel, volunteer, gain some new skills, experience different cultures and get a new perspective. Its important to make sure you do something worthwhile - don't waste the time just travelling and socialising. @AventureUK
