    Ive applied for political Science at Aberstwyth, but im pretty sure i wont be getting the grades ive been asked for.

    The thing is, im taking a gap year and going to Kosovo to work for a political group over there, and i need to be there by the beginning of September.

    My dad says to buy tickets now, as they'll be cheaper, but im not sure seeing as i might have to stay to reapply to the Uni or something like that. I'll also need to find a place to do retakes in January but im pretty sure i can do that on the day i get the result. I applied to the Uni for the year 2008.

    Can i sort all this stuff out in Kosovo, or do you think i'll need to be here. Ideally, i want to be in Kosovo by the 25th of August.

    Assuming you'll have Internet access in Kosovo and you can get your referee to email you your reference, you won't need to be in the country for your uni application unless you need to go to interviews or want to go to open days. So as long as you can sort out your resits before you go, you don't need to stay.
