    Im not sure about this idea. My parents are willing to send me abroad for my Bachelor of science, but my parents told me once i complete the degree i have to work to save money for PhD (since they need to support my sibblings education too)

    Now, obviously, I can't say at the moment whether i'll be eligable for a PhD or not. Im still finishing up my A levels. But If i am and i'm still willing to do a PhD by that time, my parents should provie for me.

    I hear people saying gap between Bs (hons) and PhD isn't advisable.
    I also know that doing work and Phd at the same time isn't advisable either

    I don't know... really... and i keep thinking about all these.

    Alternatively, i could take a gap year between A levels and undergrad, and just apply the following year in local universities. And when i finish my Bs there, then i can pursue postgrad abroad. But at the moment my parents don't like the idea of gap year and would rather me go abroad.

    Your parents should provide for you until you're 18. Anymore is their choice. Offering to pay for a BSc abroad is already very generous IMO.

    Why are your parents paying for your education? Also most PhDs are fully funded....
