    I took a gap year after finishing my A-levels (which I didn’t do well enough in at all). I am hoping to go to university in September 2018 to do a science based course (still undecided which course). My A-level results alone are certainly not going to get me anywhere, however by next September I will have been working for 1 year for a company that produces anti-venom for deadly snake bites. I feel it is giving me a lot of skills I would not be able to develop in school. Can anyone tell me whether any unis will consider me based on this work experience?

    Thank you!
