    I have a place at Surrey for Physics, However I really wanted to get into UCL but did not meet the A level requirements. Should I take a gap year out to resit some modules and reapply or is it not worth the time?

    And a separate question; how much better is UCL than Surrey

    Ye it's not really a big deal taking a gap year. I did it because I took the wrong Alevels and needed a certain subject for the course I wanted to do. If it's what you want it's not a massive undertaking.

    I'm at Kings wanting to go to Exeter and don't know whether or not to retake a module to get into exeter or just be really unhappy at kings.

    I might take a gap year, or take some A2 modules alongside first year.

    I don't know what to do.
