    So I've decided to take a gap year out to work, as well as thoroughly think on what I want to do as a career and that I definitely want to do history (I have also picked a course in History and Japanese, and I was debating on a joint degree in History and English Literature). I study History, English Literature and Art at A level and my predicted grades are BBB.

    1. When I apply, can I pick my firm and insurance choices after my gap year? I haven't had the opportunity to have a look at all the universities, and I don't want to pick two that I haven't seen.

    2. Will they reject me if I pick a Uni that has grades that are higher than my predicted? - lets say AAB or ABB.

    3. Should I just wait and apply next year?

    I've always been stuck on what to do. I'm good at art but I feel like there's no point in doing a degree and if I decide to do an career hopefully the work will show for itself. I thought history would provide more opportunities, as well as learning a language or studying literature. I love Japan and the culture and would one day like to visit - maybe I might find what I'm looking for there? I'm not entirely sure.

    Its stressful because a majority of my friends instinctively know what they want to do - for example, one of my friends wants to be a vet, so shes studying for that, a majority of my friends are in the sciences.

    Any help? It would be appreciated.
