    I want to do a gap year after sixth form. I was wondering if you knew any courses, jobs or year in industry schemes that you think are worth applying to?

    honestly mate just do a normal gap year volunteering or working abroad. too much stuff about computer science on your application can be bad, you need to show well-roundedness.
