    Basically I applied through UCAS in October, so quite early, and now have decided realistically I am not going to enjoy university on the course and universities I have chose (due to living standards in London and the courses outside of London I chose). I was hoping for Warwick to be on UCAS extra as the occasional course sometimes is (I was hoping for Acc/Fin). Sadly it isn't, and so my plan is to apply for Acc/Finance at Warwick and Bath next year, and if I get any A*s apply for economics. Is it too late for me to have a productive gap year? I can't exactly afford to volunteer for 9 months for £5000-£10,000 and I would much rather get some work experience in the finance sector or something that would be worthwhile, since they may be disappointed I have gone on a gap year when I am doing something that requires high mathematical ability.

    If anyone has any suggestions feel free to reply! Thanks

    You can just take the gap year. If you feel it's best for later outcomes. Decline all offers when the time comes and use the year wisely.
