    So I have just done my AS levels. I', doing Maths, Computer science, English lit and sociology, and I've been trying to do by personnel statements, but I'm unsure to what I want to study at Uni anymore, in the past it was always computer science for me, but I'm not quite sure anymore. I was thinking about taking a Gap year, so I wanted to know if anyone really benefited form a Gap year to help them decide what they really want to do.

    I think its very sensible for you take a gap year, you dont want to rush a decision like this.

    Think about what you love, if you truly can't think of anything before the end of September I would take a gap year.

    well, I was thinking that it has to be something I am genuinely interested in and enjoy a bit, so I decided that comp Sci may not be the best because I don't really like it all that much, I'm good at it but I thinki I chose it just for employment opportunities.

    Completely agree, it's an amazing degree with limitless opportunities but you wouldn't want to do something you don't enjoy much when.
