I'm planning on taking a gap year but I don't think my mum and my new step dad aren't keen on me living with them after I turn 18, my mum is already asking me to get a job to provide for myself while I'm in yr 13 right now. Is it realistic, especially since I'm in london and the costs are apparently higher here than other parts of UK. I don't know what kind of job I'll be able to get and whether the pay will be enough for me to live a year by myself. I'm planning on applying to uni during my gap year aswell.
I doubt any 18 year old could afford to live on their own for a whole year without any savings. Why not get a job, stay at home and just contribute towards the food shopping or bills or something?

You will need a job.
Can't you stay at home and offer to pay some rent-will be cheaper than entirely moving out
