    Ok so hopefully I am not the only person in this situation but I am currently in the process of applying for university but am finding it increasingly difficult to pinpoint one course in which I can promote in my personal statement. My predictions are AAB and I am currently looking at doing a joint honours. My choices are sociology, international relations, something media or communications related, all with Spanish. However I am unsure about IR due to my AS results with Politics which was a C. Also I am worried to apply to uni for sociology as many people refer to it as a soft course.. therefore I am completely stuck and considering a gap year might be useful. Any suggestions or advice!?

    You really need to have a love for the subject that you're applying for. If there is one that really stands out for you then I guess you wouldn't really be in this situation! Some people would say that a gap year to 'find yourself' would be a good option, but some unis will want you to have a very good reason for your gap year (doing something productive with it). If you think a gap year would benefit you, consider it as an option, and you have until the application deadline to decide about this. Maybe do some more extra research into your subjects to see if you really develop a love for one of them by then.
