This is my first post so please bare with me, also, hello TSR friends!
With 10 days left till the UCAS application deadline, I have been stressing out more and more about what I should do, whether to go to Uni, not go, take a gap year or what. I am currently studying English Literature and Art & Design at A Level as well as doing an OCR Level 3 ICT course (something like that)
For just over a year, I have been considering studying Sport Journalism at University, but leading up to the UCAS deadline I've been doing more research into it and I'm not sure if it's what I want do. Not because I don't enjoy it anymore, but because I've realised that financially it is not worth and a majority of journalism-based jobs don't require the degree, but actually care more about the experience, I do not want to study a subject that is potentially a waste of time (apart from the NCTJ course).
After this, I have branched out and looked at other courses that interest me such as: Creative Writing, English Literature, etc. But they all look way too difficult, and I don't think I could handle studying a very difficult subject combined with likely being the worst in my respective class if I took any subject.
Finally, I have also considering taking a gap year to clear my mind out and take a break from education but I don't have any plan on what I could do. I'm struggling to get a part-time job at the moment, if I do take a gap year I'll need a full-time job, which will be even harder to get.
Does anyone know what I can do?? I apologise for how long this is..

If I were you, I would take a gap year, research more into university and what course will be beneficial for you in the future and can make the most out of it.
