I am considering taking a gap year as ive got rejected from the unis i really wanted to go to. but i wanted to do something worthwhile, and something that would look good on my Economics personal statement after.

So PWC is doing a gap year placement in the field of "Actuarial and Insurance Management Solutions". I would like to get into IB later on.... will this improve my chances of getting in. Is it even relevant to IB?

You doing maths/further maths A-Level. Are you really good at maths? Are you motivated? If so, you have as much chance as anyone else; very little as its really competitive. You may have decided to apply a little late though...
Relevance to IB...Its in finance but is really specialised so to get into IB you are probably better of doing something differently.

Thanks for the reply

Im doing maths now at A level set to get an A. Yeah i am applying late, but i didnt expect to not get into the unis i want and having to take a gap year.

I was thining up calling up the uni and seeing if i could see if they'll reconsider (slim chance i know)
I was thinking of taking up Further maths if i do do a gap year, as that might be better

When you say something different what do you suggest? As the only divisions ive found that are not full are Actuarial and Insurance Management Solutions and Audit.

Anyone else?
