    How bad is it to not sit STEP exams after being registered already, in order to sit them a year later (during gap year)?
    If you're not ready to sit them now, you might not be ready in your gap year. This year, you're presumably at school/college and have maths lessons, friends doing a similar thing, and a lot of resources. Next year you'll be doing it on your own with nobody to nag you or provide work and deadlines. Maths is known to be hard to keep up during a gap year - and you're not even intending to keep up, but you want to improve. It's unlikely to happen.

    If your school didn't make you pay for the entry in the first place they will probably make you pay the wasted fee if you now want to withdraw. From memory it's about £45 a paper.
