    I'm taking a gap year and plan on starting uni in 2017, but still haven't been able to find a placement/apprenticeship.

    Any suggestions on what I can do to make sure this gap year doesn't go to waste?

    I am doing the same and haven't found much yet either, but I am going to re-take some exams and re-apply to some better universities as I don't want my year to end up being a waste either. Not sure if that's something you would consider? You could always try some volunteering or part time work to start with whilst applying for places?
